    It's fully handmade,I bought some wood boards,cut them and glued all

    About overheating,that is my concern too,I got an "old" PC case with some 120mm fans inside (speed of them around 1500RPM I think?),I,ll probabbly install them on top to blow the hot air out.

    @TommyDee thanks for the welcome!

    Just don't put the fan on top in the middle. It will cause problem with cooling the prints unevenly. If you put other fans on, don't put any in the back. Same problem. I would actually put one fan on one side towards the bottom blowing in, and another on the other side towards the top blowing out to expel the hot air. The sides of the Cube 3 are closed, so it would block the air from hitting the printed part.

    Do you really need fans? As long as the printer doesn't overheat, it would be better with minimal air flow. That way the layers would be more consistent.

    Agreed. (The post was too short and it wouldn't let me post it so I had to add this )

    I've noticed the forum requires a refresh before allowing an edit to be posted.

    Copy your edit before saving just in case.

    Another hurdle for Windows 7 geeks.
