If you need more functionality, we have tailor fit several options to fit your use case. Here are some of the options we offer:
- ✅Spectrometer tested UV Blocking - Laser shielding panels have 1% light transmission at the 450nm wavelength. (The wavelength that a diode laser operates at)
- ✅Exhaust options - Clearview offers a compact exhaust fan option that are small in form factor yet powerful in moving air with fan power up to 200cfm. Or, bring your own exhaust system and easily hook up your 4" hose to our fitted exhaust bracket.

✅COMMERCIAL GRADE PANELS - 1/4" (6mm) are standard and carry a weight and feel of a professional piece of lab equipment.

✅DUAL ACCESS DOORS - Access is easy with magnetically latched front and top mounted access doors.
✅EXHUAST PORT - A 4" mount connects easily to a drier line to remove smoke and fumes. We have a USB fan, but do understand that the USB fan has limits and we encourage you to set up a larger inline vent fan if you are burning heavy loads.
✅PASS THROUGH PORTS - 18" ports on the front allow you to feed and tile jobs that are larger than the laser's print area.
✅LASER FILTERING PANELS - Optional Laser Filtering panels can be upgraded to partial or full amber panels (OD3+ filtering at wavelengths up to 520nm). This option is great to reduce indirect light transmission. Do understand this is not classified as "Laser Viewing". In other words, you still need to wear the appropriate safety glasses. If you need panels that comply with OSHA or ANSI standards, please contact us directly.
✅OPTIONAL DUAL CHANNEL USB LED LIGHTING KIT - This plug and play lighting kit uses premium aluminum extrusion that is easy to mount with preinstalled adhesive and fool proof setup with simple male/female DC adaptor cords. At just 5 volts, these lights are bright enough to light up your project, yet super efficient.
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 Xtool D1 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.
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 XTool 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 XTool?
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!
