My CoreXY is completed, finally!

The front panel is a peice of transparent acrylic.

Interestingly, the bed heater can heat the chamber up to 60c without help of the chamber heater, but the chamber heater can do at most 55c and takes longer time.


3DTouch will be fried in the chamber and recover after cooldown. I don't think a genuine BLTouch will survive either.

The yellow line (tool 1) is chamber temperature. Bed heater is ON, chamber heater is OFF. The thermistor is placed at top of the chamber.

It looks great, well done.

Can you post more photos? I would like to see connection between X and Y axis. Also the bed leveling system. Maybe some finished prints if you have?

That looks pretty good- I like the way the lighting shows through the white side panels.

I think the side panels would work better as thermal insulators if you taped the edges to prevent air flow through them. You may also have problems with insects taking up residence if you leave them open, especially with the inside of the printer lit up. In my printer the panels are inside the t-slots in the frame which prevents most air flow and keeps bugs out, but I probably should have taped them anyway.

The triangle shadow is a surprise and becomes a logo.

Yeh I use EVA stripes and lock panels with t-nuts. Another convenient way is soft magnetic stripes, but they affect the servo control board a lot since they are hall effect sensors. I'll consult my vendor and then decide to use servos or pure steppers.
Put panels on and the chamber temperature raises to 60C easily. I'll consider to remove the active heater too.

Insects!? hmm.... XD

Please check my Instagram in the signature. Just ignore those hairly, failed support, they won't affect the final print. lol
