i want to try building an enclosure, tips and any website links or videos would be awesome. thanks.
Since I'm doing the same thing, I hope you won't mind if I take you through how I'm going about it.
well so far i’m looking at some aluminum rods with stainless steel bolts and one inch screen. the trouble is i don’t know how to attach a screen.Since I'm doing the same thing, I hope you won't mind if I take you through how I'm going about it.
And since you've been here awhile, I'll assume you've done all the research & reading about chameleon enclosures in general, and have some idea of what you want—size, materials, configuration, scratch-build or re-purpose, existing plans or custom designing your own... all that kind of stuff.
Have you set up some kind of notebook or database to collect & organize ideas, pictures, plans, sources, details, build notes... stuff like that? I'm using OneNote, but anything (including a folder or notebook) is fine.
The next step (for me) is data & idea collection. I'm using building a chameleon enclosure
as a starting point (take note of the suggested related searches in the drop-down and at the bottom), and expand from there, reading the articles, snagging pics, watching the vids, & bookmarking. I do this for all my build projects.
I'm at the point where I have a rough idea of what I want, the size & configuration, and I'm collecting & sorting through materials & suppliers. Soon I'll begin drawing up plans in Visio, Corel, or whatever drawing package you like, creating a BOM, and shopping for materials.
It'd be easier to suggest more specific tips & links once you have a little better idea of what you want to build.
i totally will!I'll have some on my channel very soon. Feel to subscribe so you know when I post them: https://www.youtube.com/c/NeptunetheChameleon?sub_confirmation=1
Thank you. I didnt even use treated wood, and it never warped or molded...though i hear it is not the usual. I also made a slotted bottom, so the water could pass through, but there will be support for my large potted plants. I had a 6 foot money tree in there at one point.it looks great anyway. you should be proud
Do you mean attaching the screen fabric to the screen frame (lots of tutorials for that) or attaching the screen frame to something else? For the latter, self-tapping sheet metal screws can be used.well so far i’m looking at some aluminum rods with stainless steel bolts and one inch screen. the trouble is i don’t know how to attach a screen.
