Ultimaker 2 Dust cover

Recommended Posts

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?

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.

    • "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.
