The DC SOLID TOP CORNER (above) is the standard corner piece for the DC Enclosure, perfect if you do not need to hold tools, run wires, or add additional ventilation to your enclosure. If you would like to run cables through the top corner or hold tools, use the DC HOLE TOP CORNER (below). There are 3 inserts available if you need to modify your setup later.

DC TOP CORNER SUPPORT SELECTION

For the DC CORNER SUPPORTS, you will notice that there are A and B versions. You will need 1 of each version (A and B) as the holes for the nuts and bolts are different. You will also need to print 2 TOP SUPPORT HEX pieces for the other 2 pieces that attach to the center of the enclosure. The reason for this is that due to the increased thickness created by combining the two pieces of plexiglass, we had to create a more secure way to anchor everything together. All of these parts are part of the DC Standard Build folder.

Notice how the cut-outs for the nuts are in different locations.

What's with the arch?

The reason that we designed the arch into the Sumo Enclosure is because, with the CoreXY design, the Prusa XL spends the beginning of the print with the print bed all the way at the top of the printer. Without the arch, the view of the beginning layers, which are the most important, would be obstructed. By adding the arch, the visibility of the initial layers is improved, and the arch also fits the design of the Prusa XL as well.
