I think the enclosure are to dark. So i looked at thingiverse.com site. There i found i really good Idea using IKEA led strips. I had to make a few changes to some dimensions.
This is what I ended up with:

Then I read that the cables to the printhead needed some support so that the wires don't break. Found one solution thingiverse.com but that did break under install so i did a few changes to that aswell.

Then I bought some filament in a local shop. There the spool had a 20 mm center hole. So then i made this addon solution to the already existing spool holder for enclosure.
Ended up in this solution:

The next thing I then made was a filament guide that attaches to the top of one of the towers using 2 existing 3mm holes and M3x15 screws.
It's made out of 2 parts to make it easier to print.

I tried printing the cable holder, but near the end, my nozzle seems to hit the model and mess up the ends. I have tried different orientation and each time par to fit messes up. how to do I fix it?

Hi, Could I use some other store other than IKEA. It is far from my home and if I could get the online shopping store for Australia?
