  • Step 3. Installing the Hose

    Then, insert the hose into the Taz5 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 Taz5 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!
