Not to worry! You can use a 3D printing service such as 3DHubs or MakeXYZ to have a local 3D printer operator 3D print and ship you parts to you. This is a great way to get your parts 3D printed by local makers. You could also try checking out your local Library or search for a Maker Space.
The carbon filter retainer is designed to be 3D printed with FDM type 3D printers. To 3D print the part, we used a 0.8mm nozzle which allows for printing a bigger layer height and extrusion width.
- 0.8mm uses more material but reduces total print time.
- 1hr 30min to 3D print (4 hours with0.4mm nozzle)
These settings are for a 0.8mm nozzle profile using CURA 3.2. Optimized for the Ultimaker 2, 2+ and 3.
- Layer Height 0.4mm
- Line Width 0.75mm
- Print Speed 45mm/s
- Maximum Retraction Count - 10
- Build plate adhesion type – Brim
- Brim Line Count – 8
The bridging on the top features are impressive, there’s a bit of sagging but it's really not bad. The grill mesh did not need any cleanup and it feels slightly springy. The print quality is quite impressive for an object with a large layer height and extrusion width.
The enclosure assembly was designed in Fusion 360. This can be downloaded in different formats like STEP, SAT and more. Electronic components like the board, displays, connectors and more can be downloaded from our Fusion 360 CAD parts github repo.
