I also modelled and printed a holder for the transmitter, the TX580 is a 5.8G 500MW Transmitter and has a working voltage of DC7.2 V to 12.8 V. It also has a 5V out to power the camera. Again its held in place with velcro.

The Video Monitor has a built in receiver and battery, I mounted it to the side of the case to charge and keep it out of the way.

I got a litte bored of having to almost climb inside the case and move the filament rollers back and forth when I hand a different filament roll size so I decided to make a "Filament Rod Holder". It slots into the top of the T-Rex Plus allowing you a place to put a rod to hang your odd sized filament roles.
Print out a couple of them and find a piece of wood or a metal rod and you're good to go.
Today I cut away the middle piece of metal from the front of the case as it wasn't providing any support and was going to be in the way. I also put in a temporary shelf in to do a test fit as you can see it fits with about 2cm to spare front to back. There a good amount of storage room underneath for filament as well.
Shortly after taking the picture I realised that I would have to have the printer in there sideways so the bed had enough room to side around while printing.
After owning and enjoying a couple of small 3D printers (Da Vinci 1.0 and a Prusa) I decided to take the plunge and get something a little bigger.
After doing months of research I opted on the Formbot T-Rex Plus and I'm very happy with the choice. Sure it was pricey at over $2000 CAD but compared to others in that size range it was a steal. I've got a good 500 hours of printing on it and it's still going strong. One thing to be said is this printer takes up a lot of room on the desk and its quite loud. Normally the noise would'nt bother me but with a big printer come long printing times and after 4 hours it starts to echo around in my head.
Thats why I jumped at the chance when an old Qualstar Tape Library came up for grabs - like (but not) the one here in the picture. Where other people saw an giant, heavy piece of junk I saw a perfect, beautiful enclosure for my big 3d Printer.
The first step was how to get it home......
