worth the money
I will admit the initial order that was shipped came with parts that were for a different sized enclosure and I was furious having spent two hours assembling what I could only to come to a complete stop. Additionally, there was no phone number to talk directly to a customer service agent, which, further angered me. I had to communicate through email and having made a significantly expensive purchase that was not ideal. I also found the instructions to be vague and some of the items were not referenced in the manual. I had to go to you tube and watch a 42-second promo in slow motion over and over to visually see what was meant to happen. NOW, that is an honest portion of my review, I will honestly tell you that I was close to returning the enclosure because I am not a patient person and when everything didn't work as it was supposed to I simply started looking elsewhere. I am so glad I did not return the item. Boxomo overnight expressed the correct parts, and while the communication chain was slow, once the problem was addressed they were very helpful. I had questions about the assembly and the parts that were not mentioned, not only did they answer my questions, they even thanked me for bringing to their attention the vague, and missing information they additionally said that they were going back to add this information to the instructions to make assembly easier. (who knows if they do or not, it was nice that they addressed my concern without calling me an idiot) Post assembly review, This enclosure is FANTASTIC! it does what it was meant to do while looking phenomenal doing it. I opted for the light kit, temperature control accessories and additional vents model for my Prusa i3 mk3s I am more than impressed and highly recommend this enclosure.
I really like the enclosure. The parts were of good quality and the build was easy. The instructions were clear for the most part. It would be helpful to describe the desired airflow of the ventilation fans. I'm using a Prusa MK2S and with the temperature regulation kit there is not much clearance between the intake fans and the printer. It fits but it is close. Additionally, the spool holder could be a bit larger to accommodate wider spools and possibly tweaked to allow for a smoother unroll of the filament. In the end, I'm very happy with my purchase and have already had some success with "problem" filaments that were negatively impacted by a non-enclosed environment.
Thank you so much for your feedback. We will clarify that in the instruction manual, and take into consideration your other comments about the spool holder and size. Glad to hear you are having success with more difficult filaments!
