update This suction head doesn't fit well to the machine for the moment. If you have tested it, we are waiting for your feedbacks and photos to make the suction head compatible as soon as possible.

  • Step 1. Print the adapters

    For the MakerBot Replicator2, you will need to print these files, already oriented as needed. Here are a few recommendations for printing:

    This is your last print without Zimpure!

  • Step 2. Installing the MakerBot Replicator2 Suction Head

    First, install the MakerBot Replicator2 suction head that you downloaded above on your extruder.

  • Step 3. Installing the Hose

    Then, insert the hose into the Replicator2 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 Replicator2 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!
