Very Specific Use Case Question: MMU2S / RMU / RepBox?

I'm looking for some info on the enclosure and if it will accommodate the MMU2S with the https://filamentbuffer.co.uk RMU Mk3 that interfaces to a RepBox.

 

Anyone know?

I actually just canceled my order for two of them, simply because I can’t get answers to this. Waiting to see if can get any answers and maybe will reorder

I haven't ordered but am starting to research.   I would like to mount the MMU2S on the top panel and route the PTFE tube through (what looks like) a slit on the top.

RE:

that is a mmu2 in the pics and allows easy access.

I dont have my case yet but would be great to hear from someone who has and has done this mod

RE:

As built it's 80 mm from the side of the metal vertical frame to the window on both sides.

That said, it seems entirely possible to move the printer around 60mm to the right.  The placement of the printer inside the frame is constrained by the corner bevel and the anti-slip dampers mounted in the bottom of the frame.    So if you're willing to engineer a solution, you should be able to get another 60mm of clearance on the left hand side.

The anti-slip dampers are screwed in from the bottom of the frame, but it seems to me that maybe replacing the standard feet with sorbothane feet should be good enough.  Or maybe someone can design a solution to shift dampers another 60mm to the right.

It's good.   It works well.  The only downside is that the hinges won't keep the lid open.  They do make some pneumatic cabinet hinges, and one of these might be an easy solution.

I ended up losing the rmu, and setting up the Repbox rewinder instead to get rid of buffer altogether. Made some brackets to hold Repbox  above
