I got an Anet A8 and want to build an enclosure for it. Since I'm currently only printing PLA, I would do it mainly for noise cancelling, because I have to run it in my room. I however want to have the possibility to upgrade it later with, say, an air filter etc., for example for ABS.

  • What do I have to pay attention to?
  • Do I need ventilation slits?
  • Would you put the filament inside or run it through a small hole from the top?
  • Any tips for making it especially noise cancelling?
  • Is wood the right material?

For ABS, if you are using an air filter, you do NOT want ventilation, because ABS prints are better quality if the ambient temperature is up at 50°C (or even warmer), and ventilation will reduce your chamber temperature. Whatever has been helping for noise cancelling now should work in the future.
