Has anyone had a dust cover made?

Recommended Posts

Im looking on google for a seamstress to make me a nice dust cover for my ultimaker... obviously with the cost of these babies i want to give it the best treatment as i can.

Im just wondering if anyone has done this? am i going overboard?

I am currently treating this printer better than my own children lol

I just use a large trash bag myself... It's not attractive, but I'm more about function than form so it works fine. I have a small CNC mill on the table next to the UM... I quickly found that the dust it produces is not conducive for correct operation of a 3d printer... It gummed up my bearings and completely froze them... So after that I've just put a plastic bag over the printer when the CNC is in use and havn't had any issues since.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
