The V-Core 3 was designed from the ground up with full enclosing in mind, with no need for an external enclosure. The design ensures that all motors and electronics are safely placed outside the printing chamber, so they are shielded from high temperatures, and no machine elements protrude from the frame, ensuring that the frame can be directly covered with panels from all sides.

The enclosure kit is the perfect solution for users who want to:
- Use filaments that require high temperatures
- Shield their printer from humidity, dust, drafts, etc
- Shield their environment from printer noises and smells

Panels & Printed Parts

Files for the panels and printed parts can be found on the GitHub Project repository.

Warning: if you already have side panels for your machine and used the DXF files available in the repository before September 24th, 2021, your panels will need a couple of cut-outs to accommodate the hinges for the front doors.
Warning: at the moment we only provide printed parts in PETG. PETG doesn't perform well in an enclosed environment, so we recommend using ABS/ABS+ on the printed parts that will be inside the main printing chamber. The printed parts included in the enclosure kit are not inside the main chamber, so this isn't a problem.
