FAQs

What is Boxomo Enclosures?

Boxomo Enclosures was founded to provide premium 3D printer enclosures. We offer options for MMU units, temperature regulation, and ventilation systems and use materials that are fire resistant (the sides are made of poly-carbonate). 

What size of enclosure fits my printer?

We currently offer three enclosures, designed to fit the Prusa MK3 series with or without an MMU (the Boxomo 5.3), the Ender 3/Ender 3 Pro/Ender 3 V2 (the Boxomo 7.0) and the Creality CR-10 (the Boxomo 16.6). However, you can use the enclosure with any printer that fits inside. We do not have access to every brand and model of 3D printer, so we recommend our customers check the dimensions of their printer against the dimensions of our enclosures (listed below). When considering the internal dimensions, please be sure to account for total travel of the build plate (not just stationary measurements). 

The Boxomo 5.3 (Prusa MK3 series)

  • Internal dimensions: 20"W x 23"L x 20"H
  • External dimensions: 21.125"W x 24.125"L x 21.125"H
  • Maximum doorway dimensions with door attached: 18.375"W x 19.375"H 
  • Internal Volume: 5.3 cubic feet

The Boxomo 7.0 (Ender 3/Ender 3 Pro/Ender 3 V2)

  • Internal dimensions: 23"W x23"L x23"H

  • Maximum doorway dimensions with door attached: 22.75"W x 23.375"H  
  • Internal Volume: 7.0 cubic feet

The Boxomo 16.6 (Creality CR-10)

  • Internal dimensions: 30"W x30"L x32"H 
  • External dimensions: 31"W x31"L x33"H

Where do you ship?

We currently ship to over 20 countries, including Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and many countries in the EU. If you do not see your country as an option on the shipping page, please email us at contact@boxomoenclosures.com and we can most likely set up shipping to your country.

Why do I need an enclosure?

3D printers produce toxic fumes, especially when working with ABS, nylon and other engineering plastics. These fumes, including styrene, are known carcinogens and can have long-term health effects. Even using PLA releases ultrafine particles (UFPs) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). In addition, most high-grade plastics perform much better when you have an enclosure to regulate temperature. Please note that our enclosures do not significantly reduce the sound of the 3D printer.

Is there assembly required?

Yes. Our enclosures take approximately 1-2 hours to assemble. Detailed, easy-to-follow instructions are provided with the enclosure or can be found on our resources page here.

What is your return policy?

Please read our return policy here. Please make sure to read the full product description before ordering any of our items to ensure you get the product you are expecting.

Are the enclosures fire-resistant?

Our enclosures have use poly-carbonate for the floors and ceilings, which has flame retardant and self-extinguishing properties. (Please note that the bottom is acrylic.)

What kind of accessories do you sell?

We currently have a ventilation kit, a ventilation and temperature regulation kit, and a light kit.

Do these enclosures provide ventilation and temperature regulation?

The enclosures do NOT come with all the parts needed for a fully set up temperature regulation or ventilation system. Rather, you can choose to have the enclosures come with cut-outs for vents, fans, etc.. You are free to set up your own system or buy one of our kits to get the materials needed for the full system.

Do the enclosures come with lights?

They do NOT come with any lights. However, we have a light kit available here.

Do the enclosures reduce the printer's sound?

No, the enclosure does not significantly reduce the sound of a 3D printer.

What do the names of the enclosures mean?

The number (i.e. 5.3) is the volume of the enclosure in cubic feet.

Why are the enclosures so expensive?

The raw materials for the enclosure, particularly the polycarbonate panels and aluminum rails, are costly. This is especially true when the enclosure is larger. We have priced our products as low as we can while still making our business viable. We are always looking for ways to cut our costs, and if we find ways to do so, we will gladly reduce the price!

Where are you located?

We are based out of Provo, Utah.
