update You'll find below the instructions for the Ultimaker 2+. This is the same suction head for your Ultimaker 2. In case of problem, contact us at nicolas@zimple3d.com. If your suction head is installed on your Ultimaker 2, please send us some photos!

  • Step 1. Print the adapters

    For the Zortrax M200, you will need to print these files, already oriented as needed. Here are a few recommendations for printing: 

    File Material Layer Height Supports Infill Download
    STLOriginal+Holder.stl Flexible 0.1 YES HIGH
    STLOriginal+Tube.stl Flexible 0.1 YES HIGH

    It's recommended to print these parts with a filament a little flexible to make it clip easily.

    Thanks to Oscar Galego from bikespot for this nice design!

  • Step 2. Installing the Ultimaker 2 Suction Head

    First, install the Ultimaker 2 suction head that you downloaded above on your extruder.

  • Step 3. Installing the Hose

    Then, insert the hose into the 2 Suction Head and plug the other side of the hose into Zimpure. 

  • Step 4. Operating Instruction

    Here you go, your Zimpure is ready to filter! First, depending on the cooling fan you’re using, you could have to lower it to have a suction rate efficient enough.

    Please note that you need to turn your Zimpure ON only after than your 2 has started to print. Please verify how the beginning of the first layer goes. You are now all set up to print safely, without any toxic emissions. Happy safe printing!
