Become Capable

With the addition of our enclosure, the user can experience more consistent printing performance on their Anet A8.  The maker can expect to receive improvements in print quality with a range of filaments.  The following are specific benefits of the enclosure:  

  • Warmer print environment reduces cracking and warping
  • Better layer bonding 
  • Higher achievable bed temperatures  
  • Save energy through thermal efficiencies 
  • Expect printer to heat up faster   
  • Eliminate environmental inconsistencies such as drafts

Improve Safety 

Open 3D printers can be a hazard for anyone and anything that come into contact with them.  Print nozzles, especially, can be extremely dangerous because of their high temperatures and rapid movement.  Our enclosure prevents accidents from happening by placing a barrier between your printer and the outside world. 

In addition, our design does not enclose the main circuit board or the power supply.  This reduces the chance of component failure caused by high heat.  We have tested this enclosure for hundreds of hours to ensure that our product puts your safety first.     

Easy to Use

Upon opening your enclosure, we at Imagin3D, hold your hand through the build and install process.  We provide detailed step by step instructions that will make the process a lot easier than when you first assembled your Anet A8.

Quality Guarantee

The acrylic in our enclosures is professionally laser cut creating a quality fit and finish.  All of our parts and components are hand inspected and determined fit for shipping.  If a detail falls through the cracks you can expect us, at Imagin3D, to address it.  We guarantee all enclosure kits to arrive free of defects.

Why the Money?

We are asking for money to fund the first shipment of enclosures.  This process requires funding so we can ship the enclosures at a competitive price.  We also need more production equipment to handle an increase in volume.  This is all in an effort to provide the best product for our customers.

Risks and challenges

We currently are still finalizing the product and preparing to handle an increase in volumes. However, a dramatic increase in volume would likely affect our timetable for shipping your orders.
