V-Hive enclosures are designed for direct compatibility with the most popular 3D Printers in the market. The printer is mounted directly on the enclosure's sub-frame, improving rigidity and reducing vibration.
V-Hive is a modular enclosure designed for direct compatibility with the most popular 3D Printers in the market. The 3 different sizes available, 500mm3, 600mm3 and 700mm3 make almost all desktop 3D printers in the market compatible. Improve your print quality with a controlled environment!
For compatibility you need to measure the total working volume of your machine.
i.e. In most Cartesian style printers the bed protrudes outside the machine frame while moving along the Y axis.
Multi-purpose enslosure modules
Easy build with self-aligning connectors.
Simple panel design for easy self-sourcing.
Sturdy frame based on 30 series extrusion
The printer is mounted directly on the enclosure frame, improving rigidity and reducing vibration.
The enclosure insulates the printer from drafts, dust, and fluctuations in temperature and air humidity, while insulating the user from machine noises and fumes.
V-Hive Modules are stackable and connectable, allowing you to sort multiple modules in different grid types.
The design is optimized for an easy and straightforward assembly process that allows for gradual expansion of an enclosed print farm.
The V-Hive has a comprehensive step-by-step build guide. Each section is broken down into easy to follow steps, detailing the parts needed and how to assemble them.
