Ultimaker 2 Dust cover

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2 Dust cover

I only get to use my Ultimaker during the weekends which leaves it to gather dust during the week. I was thinking it would be pretty awesome if Ultimaker made some dust covers (like the type used on microscopes and other lab equipment) that we could buy for our printers.

Thoughts?

If your UM2 gets significant dust during a week you maybe should check a relocation. Make sure you use a filament filter as dust in the nozzle can easily lead to a clog.

I actually took on the tip from reibuehl and bought the JÄLL, took the stand off and it is a perfect fit and looks like it was made for the Ultimaker. Thanks!

To be exact, I did try a series of bags and can confirm that the IKEA laundry bag JÄLL is actually the only real option. For less than 5 euros you have a dust cover with an exact fit and enough space for the filament hose on the top. You do need to remove the metal stand and make a cut on the back because the filament won't fit.
