Prusa Mini Enclosure Recommendations

Hi guys, I am currently waiting for my mini to arrive, and was hoping to get a an enclosure as I'll have it in my poorly ventilated, slightly dusty basement. I was looking at the Creality small soft cover, but not sure if it can accommodate the filament roll. Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations for an enclosure? I'd much prefer to buy one, not really interested in making one. Thank you!

Any box for the Mk3S should work unless it's specifically designed for it such as Prusa's own. I found the Prusa-Box very interesting https://www.printer-box.com/categorie-produit/enclosure-for-3d-printers/enclosure-prusa-mk3s but too expensive for my taste. I actually just looked and unless I'm mistaken, prices have come down a good bit. I built a Lack enclosure for it. I know you don't want to go that way but if you change your mind, do yourself a favor and go with v2, which gives you a lot more room to work in.

This is great! Thank you for the reply. I like the look of the plexiglass ones a lot better too. Fantastic.

I heard good opinions about those: https://www.tukkari.com/p/ts-acrylic-prusa-mini

But personally I use just a cardboard box with 3D printed corners. Works well enough but does not look so neat.

RE:

I'm a fan of the following enclosure.
https://www.printables.com/de/model/51298-ikea-platsa-modular-dual-prusa-enclosure-minimk3sb

It should work very well and is modular and cost efficient and the build time is not really a deal here since the IKEA systems are quite fast to build.

This my enclosure setup. ( https://www.tukkari.com/p/ts-acrylic-prusa-mini) Like the fan on back and the temperature control inside with the speed-controlled fan. Limited but better than nothing,

Ikea lack tables are cheap <10$ option for enclosures. For me that was enough. You can add 1-4 plexiglass sides if you want or need.

I used a wall mount server cabinet, lined it with roof sarking also some rubber mouse pads and a paver works great

I'm using Prusa Original Enclosure for my two Mini+.  I just wanted it to be stackable with my MK3S+, so I bought 4 Prusa Original Enclosures.
