I wouldn't uses the Roses metal as its difficult and local.
I believe the tyre kits come with a connector to attach to the tyre. If you modify this and fit a plastic pipe instead of the tyre you can route the pipe all round the cabinet. The pipe can have a nice low melting point - say 100C. This will melt where it is hot and deliver the C02 at the melting point. I wouldn't think you will get 100C anywhere in the cabinet apart from contact with the bed or hot end. By the time you got the entire cabinet hot enough to melt the metal i would expect a major fire to be underway.
And the canister is outside the cabinet - you just feed the plastic hose through a hole.
Seal the blank end with a screw and some heat shrink tubing.
I guess you will get a shot of air from that traped in the tube but the C02 should clear that.
Not sure what volume of C02 the cannisters contain but it needs to be sized for the cabinet.
Save the planet, no more CO2 in the atmosphere please.
I even stopped drinking soda !
Quite a few. Do some google searches om the subject. Sure, most have been cheap kits with substandard electronics and thermal runaway disabled. But the potential to start a fire is there in all printers.
the_digital_dentist; why not do both if the extra protection against unforseen risk can be had for a reasonable cost?
