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.

Cheers,

Troy.

    • "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.
