After a short time, a lot of material collects around the Snapmaker: tools, screws, mounting parts, filament rolls, wooden plates for calibrating the laser and the CNC, isopropanol alcohol and much more. If the Snapmaker is in the apartment, trouble is quickly pre-programmed. That’s why I built a base cabinet for the Snapmaker.
In this cabinet, of course, all material and accessories should have space. In addition, I wanted to accommodate the vacuum cleaner for the CNC setup. Finally, there should also be an emergency stop switch. For the different building plates I thought of something very special.
The base cabinet has 5 drawers in the front left. 2 Filement and material drawers below. Then 2 tool drawers. At the top is a work platform on which, for example, the 3D printing plate can be cleaned.
At the back there is a large drawer on which vacuum cleaner is attached. This is led to the outside with a hose and osVAC connectors.
Via hose couplings the suction device of the CNC equipment can be connected

To exhaust the fumes during laser work, I built a window connector and made a hose connection
Everything together finds place in the vacuum cleaner drawer
The building plates and the Snapmaker modules are stored in the front right drawer. Each building platform finds its own place on its own shelf and can be easily removed. The individual floors are kept closed or open by a gas pressure damper.
The emergency stop switch is mounted on the front panel. With the switch next to it, the vacuum cleaner can be switched on and off.
