The hinges are in two pieces, the parts with the screw holes connect to the door and slide onto the printer clips. After printing the hinges, melt or glue a piece of metal rod or a finishing nail down the center to the hinge post for added strength.

Clip the hinges to the front / side of the printer and adjust their position to your liking. Make sure the door will clear the knob and display, and opens fully. Mark where you will need to drill in four holes in the door for screws. Screw the hinges to the door and clip on the handle.

11x12 inch clear plexiglass, acrylic or lexan sheet (280mm x 300mm or so)

It worked very well. At first. Then it because coming loose, untill it started falling off all the time. A shame as I rather liked how it didn't require any modification of the printer.
Maybe make a model that comes flush with the case somehow.
