Ok so nothing really that new here for many RepRappers, but I made my own gen6 board enclosure. It was a really long print and took a lot of material (relatively to my other prints). I can now enclose my electronics to help protect them. A vent on top was placed for future hook up of a fan.
In my older posts you will see that the board is mounted on the acrylic on the face of the machine. This limited my z-height to 43mm. I mounted the acrylic on top of the unit and spent hours rerunning the wires and getting them to look neat and out of the way. Now I have a max Z of 82mm (could go a little higher but being safe)
