In this video we take a look at what modifications are needed to get the Flashforge Creator Pro sealed up well enough to use my HEPA/Carbon Air Scrubber. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1305485
Keep in mind you may not need to make all of these modifications if you own a different printer. Your goal is to seal up the chamber as well as you can.
1) If you own a Flashforge Creator Pro with the factory top you MUST replace it with the Makerbot top. I found there is no easy way to seal the existing top and the top to the frame of the printer. If the top of the FFCP is not sealed well, I doubt this or any other scrubber will work very well. (See Pictures)
2) You must seal up every seam in the top of the printer using some clear silicone. This includes sealing the carry handles with some covers. I also recommend sealing the bottom rear seam where the steel bottom meets the back wall. (See Pictures)
3) You will need to be able cut a square hole in the rear of the printer, it’s pretty easy if you are handy with a Dremel. You will not be able to use the front cowl included in Rod’s thingy as it reduces too much air flow. (See Pictures)
4) If your door does not close completely, you will need to superglue 2 magnets on either side to force the door closed.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
