3mm (1/8") Acrylic Hood and Window Kit for MakerBot Replicator 3D Printer
The Insanely Great Products Hood and Window Kit is designed for the MakerBot Replicator 1.
When a printer is used in a school or as part of a display, the window kit provides a barrier between the heated print area when a print is taking place. It includes easily removable windows that can be used to access the print bed when the printing process is complete. The kit can be assembled so the windows have handles, or so the handles are not installed and a screw driver is required to remove the windows. No modifications to the MakerBot are required to use this kit.
The window kit also encloses the print area in order to stabilize the temperature and avoid the risk of ruined prints due to a door opening and closing, the air conditioning coming on in a building, or a breeze through an open window. If you use a printer outdoors and are printing with ABS Plastic, enclosing it is almost required.
The kit is available made out of 3mm or 6mm laser cut pieces of clear acrylic. The 3mm version provides an economical solution for individuals or organizations wanting to make the most of their budget or for printers in an environment with few users and light duty. The 6mm version is sturdy and appropriate for a heavier use environment and deployments where there are many users.
The panels are shipped flat to minimize shipping costs and are easily assembled with a screw driver.
