Cover Kit for Ultimaker 2 and Ultimaker 2+

Recommended Posts

Definitely not made by Ultimaker, but I have to say, I have one, and I like it so far. It's similar to the designs on YouMagine. In fact, the black plastic parts are printed in ABS. But it has a fan and filter up in the corner. So far, I've been using it for about 2 weeks for high temperature materials on a UM2+. I appreciate not having to smell any ABS while I work.

Thank you for the feedback! I'm taking delivery of mine today. They talk about replacement HEPA Filters. Do you know where we get these from?

It looks like Dynamism where you found the cover sells the replacement filters for $79 according to their site. I haven't gotten to the point of needing to replacement filter yet.

 

Being that this thing is so expensive and can't find it anywhere except at Dynamism I want to get a spare in case they stop carrying this thing. Printing my first ABS from last night. No odor at all and temps inside are maintained perfectly. So far I'm impressed. I will post the link here as to where to get the filter from Dynamism as soo as I can find it. Thanks!

Here in Europe, we can get the "Ulti Top" for roughly 150,00 Euros, Front Doors are 50,00,- (here: http://3dprinterstore24.de/3D-Drucker-Gehaeuse:::383.html or Belgium here: http://www.ideato3d.be/boutique/upgrades/ultitop-for-ultimaker/ ) plus some smart person just released a mod to attach a hepa filter to it here: https://www.youmagine.com/designs/ultitop-filter

Unfortunately i do not know anybody on the US side of the pond selling those.

I am using the UltiTop because of my severe dust problems, the door i must admit i am too lazy to reattach most of the time. I like the top, and i think it helps but cheap it ain't either.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
