Beautify the Printer (Hide most of the important internals )

I think the time has come to beautify my printer, after which you will not see any internals of it - JUST LIKE JR.


The concept is laughable since he published photos of his printer internals and was later doing "Damage Control", but who is competing with whom?

I have installed a few things that I believe are necessary for the good and clean operation of the printer.

Yes! The fan below hides the most secretive component of all:

The Air Duct! it is made from 2 pieces of CPVC and is 150mm on the round end. At the rectangular it is 300mm x 80mm. It is held to the frame with some L-shape brackets 30mmx30mm. It catches the hot exhaust from the projector even it the fan is not running and venting it away from the top of the printer.

And now... I have cut out the projector front cover with my rotary hand piece and installed back in the projector:

Made you think I was going to show you black glossy plexiglass?

Drink one for me ( since I drink only wine occasionally )! Sheers!
