@mcoronado yes to the lighting, but also i think it will just look better with the tint overall.

mcoronado added a comment to T4760: Research off-the-shelf materials that could be used to produce the enclosure.

@tutley The front should be consistent with the sides. The tint is based on the assumption that there will be lighting inside the enclosure. Is that correct?

tutley added a comment to T4760: Research off-the-shelf materials that could be used to produce the enclosure.

@mcoronado agreed. we could do the sides gray and the front clear? or do you think it would be better to do all gray?

For the clear panels, would you like them to have a slight tint?
https://www.tslots.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Master-Catalog-Web-compressed.pdf see p186 polycarbonate panel. They have clear, gray, bronze. I think the bronze is the dark one and gray is the slightly tinted one. See the bronze panel in acrylic

@coloradoprintingproject it will likely ship with the storage cabinet assembled, and the front and back fully assembled. The customer would only be assembling the sides This is designed to use anchor fasteners with drop in tnuts, so assembly should be a breeze.

@Orias that exact set up hasn't no, but this set up is to be modular so the customer can set up in any config they would like. We are going to recommend only 2 enclosures max though.

Has this been proposed yet? Filament cabinet on top, with vent holes into that chamber from the warm cabinet environment. Add cut outs for filament feeding directly from the filament cabinet, with or without ptfe feed tubes.

@eBeardslee nice! Overall it is ~4.1 feet wide, ~6.2 ft tall, and ~2.5 feet deep. The storage+wheels is 1.5 ft tall. The storage+wheels+bottom enclosure is ~3.8ft tall. So the bottom of the TAZ7 iis 3.8 ft off the ground

I am going to start working on getting drawings for all the TSLOTS pieces so we can get it ordered and get a prototype together. Still need to nail down power/lighting/ etc

Here is an example of a black anodized non slotted enclosure. Any feedback?
The sides of the frame need to have slots in order to link the enclosures together using the connector link

@karrad We can get the holes drilled into non slotted extrusions for handles and hinges with a small increase in lead time.
Also, I agree that having the option to add attachments/mods will come in very handy.

Steven added a comment to T4760: Research off-the-shelf materials that could be used to produce the enclosure.

@karrad it would depend on the location of the holes. I think any holes we drill after anodizing would be covered by hardware but if not you would see the bare aluminum from the drilled hole. We can confirm Monday if that would be a concern.

karrad added a comment to T4760: Research off-the-shelf materials that could be used to produce the enclosure.

@tutley Would it be possible to get the holes drilled into non slotted extrusions for the handles and hinges? If it is not feasible in the time line and/or quantity requirements, would we be able to do this with a fixture and our drill press?

from TSLOTS
Min bulk order is about 800 pieces.
For small quantities of black anodized for the prototypes:
"We can do a small one time order but we can’t do it in house. I’ll have the send the cut and machined pieces to a third party and they will anodize them black. Lead time will be about 10 days from start to finish. Our third party anodizer uses a single stage dye black where ours is a 2 stage architectural finish. Just want you to be aware as the dye finish may fade in sunlight. I think it should be no problem for a prototype though. "

Update:
Tslots can provide non slotted extrusions in a black anodized finish in bulk orders. This will not add much to the lead times. In order quantities of ~1000 pieces this will be 3-5 weeks, 5k-10k pieces this will be 5-6 weeks. For clear anodized extrusions lead times are 3-4 weeks for quantities of 1000 and 5-6 weeks in 2000+ orders.

@mcoronado, yes there are connector links that fasten the enclosures together once stacked. I agree that a slight tint looks good for the clear panels

mcoronado added a comment to T4760: Research off-the-shelf materials that could be used to produce the enclosure.

So the plan is to source and order materials for 2 prototypes for evaluation: 1. using open-faced extrusions with black inserts and 2. Using closed-faced extrusions from 80/20.

Sounds like black extrusions, black hardware, and black inserts are the best option for us so far. I feel strongly that any of the UX touch points can make up some ground for a premium/professional feel.

@Steven We plan to review spec sheet after R&D today. Time line will be foremost, and if we need to avoid custom pieces in order to hit that we will. @eBeardslee and @mcoronado are aware, and we will be getting all of their requests examined to determine if feasible.
