3D Printing Enclosures

I drew up an enclosure in Autodesk Fusion 360 and designed some custom keycaps so that I can print them in different colors. I 3D printed the enclosure using the Sigma 3D Printer from BCN3D. But, If you don’t have access to a 3D printer, you could use a service like 3D Hubs to make it for you. I used PLA material to 3D print the parts, and they didn’t require any support material.

Slice Settings

Depending on your 3D printer, you may need to adjust the slice settings. We tested the enclosure  on a Sigma BCN3D. They do not require any support material and are oriented to print "as is".

  • Nozzle: 0.4mm
  • Extrusion Multiplier: 1.0
  • Extrusion Width: 0.48mm
  • Layer Height: 0.2mm
  • Nozzle Temperature: 220c
