I used a combination of 3/4" plywood, 1/2" plywood, 1/4" plywood, and 1/4" plexiglass for this project. I had all of the materials on-hand left over from other projects. Below are the dimensions for the main parts.
- Top and Bottom - 18" wide x 22.75" deep (3/4" plywood)
- Sides - 23" wide x 22" tall (1/2" plywood)
- Back - 18" x 18" (1/4" plywood)
- Control Panel Cover - 18" wide x 4.25" tall (3/4" plywood)
Building the small box for the 3D printer controls was a blast. I made careful measurements and designed it myself. I cut all the parts from 1/4" plywood and glued them together with wood glue. I used this On/Off Lighted Rocker Switch for the printer and LED lights. If you have the same controller, click here to download my PDF template of the controller box.
This was a fun project and a great opportunity to use up some plywood and plexiglass materials that were taking up space in my shop. Look out for a 3D printed project coming soon!
