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

    Out of curiosity, what do you feel is a reasonable price for a purpose specific dust cover? I have been thinking of making one for myself. I have a sewing machine and it would be a pretty simple thing to make. Maybe worth making 50 of them and peddling them...

    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.

    Cheers,

    Troy.
