The Creality Falcon 2 Laser engraver enclosure (fume hood) kit is an easy to set up solution to contain and exhaust smoke and fumes created during the laser making process.
This enclosure is a "set over" table top design and securely holds your laser inside for easy setup and mobility. Panels are made from clear or optional laser filtering acrylic for a clean easy to see work area. Best of all, we have designed a solution that is compatible with the rotary tool allowing you to engrave cups and tumbles up 80mm in diameter without the need to move or prop up your laser enclosure.
Our enclosure sets up easily with just a screw driver and doesn't require significant modification. Lastly our enclosure is safer. We have the only enclosure with panels that are spectrometer tested to block up to 99.8% of light transmission at the 450nm wavelength.
Clearview enclosures are made in California, by a small business that understands the needs of crafters and carries genuine appreciation for your support.
- Universal Fit - 750mm Wide x 755mm Deep x 405mm tall and will fit the Ikier K1.
- Commercial grade - 1/4" panels are thicker and more stable for a stronger enclosure.
- Hood mounted Lightburn camera - USB camera that is mounted to the hood of the enclosure to get accurate part alignment with Lightburn tracing.
- Air assist compatible - 2 access points for feeding wires and air assist tubing
- 4" exhaust options
- Extendable - Extend your enclosure by simply adding a 2nd enclosure. We designed this to work so it is easy to extend.
- Expandable - You can also change the side that you want your exhaust vent on to fit your work space best. Or, add on a second fan for added exhaust capacity.
Here is why you want an enclosure...
This enclosure is an absolute must for a laser engraver. The companies are selling their laser engravers without enclosures because it is a difficult, expensive addon. Laser engraving produces lots of smoke, soot and fumes that you don't want to breath in. More so, if you are engraving into paint, wood with stain or sealants, or other substrates you are producing smoke that you don't want to breath in. Even leather and non treated wood contain stuff you don't want to breath in regularly. An enclosure is designed to contain the smoke and soot and more so, adding an exhaust port is the best way to contain the fumes. If you are planning to engrave indoors, this is a necessary upgrade.
Here is what to expect...
Our Creality Falcon 2 enclosure is tailor fit specifically for the D1. Our panels are cnc cut for precision sizing, the 3D printed brackets have carry great fitment, and the hardware we provide protects against rust. This enclosure while in use contains a significant portion of fumes and smoke when accompanied by a proper exhaust setup. Do expect that the laser produces a soot that will collect on your laser and enclosure over time so cleaning will be needed as desired. The thinner panels are pretty flexible and we offer them to make them affordable. We do strongly suggest getting the thicker panels as your first choice for a more robust, professional feel.
This is what makes our enclosure rad:
We offer special features that are found on professional grade lasers. The amber colored, laser filtering acrylics greatly reduce the light flashing into the room for a better operating experience. Assembling is easy and only requires a screw driver and allen wrench. The panels are sized perfectly to fit just around the frame and with enough height to accommodate the rotary and extension. Ports at the base allow your to easily slide your sheet substrate in the enclosure for fast material changes and so you can tile jobs to create a job with an infinite length.
Who We've Worked With
Neil Henderson here, Owner and Head Designer at Clearview Plastics. My shop is a California based artisan design studio that builds our enclosures in house, in Sacramento California. My enclosure are professionally CNC cut for accuracy with parts specifically designed for our artisan project. This isn't ordering from Amazon. When you order through us, you with with me, and out relationship comes with my genuine appreciation and personal skilled help.
Do the laser filtering panels mean I don't need to wear those amazingly rad safety glasses?
No, While the panels filter UV light at the wavelength that diode lasers operate at, we still suggest you wear those sexy safety glasses.
What is or is not included?
Generally speaking, if you pick the minimum price kit it include acrylic panels and hardware, and you 3D print the brackets and parts. If you choose to include 3Dprinted parts you will have everything you need to set up the enclosure, but you'll need to add your own exhaust fan and hose. We consider this a complete operating kit and the remaining customizations are optional. In all cases you will need to supply a 4" dryer hose to exhaust fumes to the window.
Will your Creality Falcon 2 enclosure allow enough vertical space to use the rotary too also?
Yes! The inside height of the enclosure is 11.75" With feet attached and laser head fully articulated up there is just enough room. We also developed an easy to attach wire lead that helps prevent the laser head wires from bushing on the enclosure lid. In all, this should give enough clearance for engraving onto an 80mm glass or tumbler.
Do you Ship internationally?
Yes. The shipping costs are automatically calculated at checkout. We ship using USPS/UPS/Fedex with an HS code of 8538.10. Shipping prices with express shipping services often cover import fees and bonds however additional fees, VAT, and other tariffs maybe charged.
What is your timeline?
We are shipping Preorder by January 15th or sooner.
Do the Laser filtering panels allow me to stare at the laser?
No. Independent testing shows the laser filtering panels block wavelengths up to 520nm (desktop Diodes operate at 445nm). However, it is never safe to look directly at the laser. Proper eye protection should be worn when you laser is in use. If you need and enclosure that meets ANSI, ASTM, or OSHA guidelines please contact us.
Does the enclosure have an exhaust port to clear smoke and fumes?
Our enclosure includes a USB powered Fan and is great way to keep the smoke and smell contained. The powered fan that is included will help a hobbyist reduce the fumes when you use a 4 inch exhaust hose outside. The USB fan is designed for casual hobby use. If you are burning large jobs or sensitive materials you may need to add an inline vent fan to your exhaust for more air circulation. You will need to supply 4" dryer hose. It is availble at most hardware store or amazon for about $10
Do you Make an enclosure for other models than just Creality Falcon 2?
Yes, we offer a universal option that is compatible with other laser engravers with an approximate 40cmx40cm engraving space here
Have a different laser engraver or desktop CNC? We make enclosures for several printer models. Just ask!
What is your return Policy?
We have a 30 day return policy. Unused, undamaged panels that still have the masking fully attached are eligible for a full refund less return shipping. If panels are damaged (after shipment) or the protective mask layer has been removed, we cannot offer a refund. For best results in ensuring fitment and to ensure you like the setup of our enclosures consider at least partially assembling with the mask on. If you find out it isn't for you, this allows to get the return for a full refund.
What are some other things I should know?
This listing is for the Clear acrylic panels, hardware, and printed parts to enclose your Creality Falcon 2 Laser Engraver. Laser engraver not included.
"I still smell smoke" - A few things 1. The enclosure is designed to catch most of the fumes, but it is not sealed. You may wish to create your own mods for better sealing. 2. You may need more exhaust power or efficiency. Consider upgrading your fan to an inline fan or a fan with additional power.
We make updates and upgrades to our enclosures often. The brackets, placement, descriptions, and photos can change. Sorry, but if we've outdated a piece or feature we cannot roll that back for you.
