I would second someone’s suggestion from the announcement thread—sealed filament case—and suggest that it could be linked to the smartbox to keep track of % remaining via weight.

how about a power-cable solution for large farms?

What is SmartBox?

Definitely would be interested in spool storage, but only if it kept it dry.

A kit of plugs for what appears to be numerous open holes in the frame for mounting of options that many will not be using.

They will let us know in detail soon, but roughly speaking Prusa’s SmartBox will be a programmable control unit/interface for all the electronic features and official add-one such as multi-colored LED strips, electronic door locks, particle sensors, fans, and maybe heaters.

Any room to add a platform drawer slides to pull the printer out of the enclosure without having to completely removing it from the enclosure?

Those of you on the mailing list probably received a note announcing the official Original Prusa Enclosure.

https://blog.prusa3d.com/original-prusa-enclosure_67656/

It has a built-in temperature monitor (hmmm ... looks familiar, see below) 😉 and options such as LED lighting, fire-suppression (some items say EU only for this), fan with filter (no mention of it being temperature controlled), a lock to keep kids, burglars, and curious cats out, and various other things.

One thing I do like is the ability to run the power supply and/or control panel outside of the box.

I'm probably not in the market for this, since I added a similar 3d Upfitters enclosure about two years ago with my own temperature monitor/control, but had this been available then I probably would have gone with it.

  • Remote monitoring for the SmartBox with an API to create plug-ins so that you can monitor it with  Octoprint or Home Assistant.
  • Haribo dispenser with access control to prevent over consumption.

And/Or over-temp sensor.  I was told that in garages that they use over temp sensors to detect fires because the the dust and particles can mess with he smoke detector sensors.

I have ordered an enclosure. I would like to see a mounting brackets to connect a Repbox to the enclosure and feed filament to the MMU.
