  • 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 Original+ 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!
