Pretty disappointed with this enclosure. And especially being as expensive as it is… VERY unhappy.
It’s laser proof! Great! That’s the main reason I got it! Now to the rest of it…
The LEDs are SO weak. Even looking inside the enclosure with the door open, you can barely see anything.
The acrylic panels on on sliding/folding doors have these foam layers around the border to help “seal” around the door to the frame. They are all slightly curved outward in the middle, so the foam doesn’t even touch. I know you don’t necessarily want an enclosure to be “sealed”, but it was a wasted effort here.
The coiled cord for the touchscreen is pulled so tight on the port it plugs into. To remedy this I have pulled the cord towards the controller and “hung” it on the old touchscreen mount.
When dust can be a huge enemy for 3D printing, it would have been wise to wrap the acrylic in static proof… anything. I left all the plastic protective covers on until I HAD to take them off to continue building, take the outside ones off at the end, and the walls inside and out are covered in dust from static.
The slides for the door are terrible, and it’s annoying to have to put my hand inside to push outward on the folding door to get it to fold and open.
No filament guide, just an oversized hole with a hard plastic insert, and having to mount the filament holder on the outside, outside of the enclosures footprint makes you either need an even bigger table, or to pull your table away from the wall.
NO BOTTOM! Which mean you MUST have a table to hold this almost 30"x36" enclosure. This was a HUGE pain. I have TWO A350’s, and I have had 2 enclosures for about 2 weeks. I JUST set up one of them, because I was finally able to find a big enough table for the one at work.
I updated my firmware before plugging the enclosure into the controller. Downloaded the firmware from their site, put it on a flash drive, then plugged it into the SM. Went to files like I would if I was about to print something, and just tapped the firmware file. Instantly start updating. Fast and easy!
Once it was done, I turned the machine off, plugged the enclosure into the controller, then turned it back on. The touchscreen then told me my “enclosure module firmware” was out of date. Nothing on the site about it. Enclosure fully functions except I can’t turn on “Door detection”. As soon as I click “save” in luban, it reverts back to “off”.
Most of the wires were sized perfectly to run hidden from one thing to another. So that and the wire holders were a very nice touch.
(Cough still waiting for an answer about my support ticket for my melted heated bed wire. Melted a few mm away from the bed itself. Too close to bend and touch the bed anywhere.)
