Lightweight 2-piece Cover for Ultimaker Hotend (V2). I printed out the nice cover by Thingster that was based on the design from Gijs. I agree with Thingster - it really improves the look the Ultimaker extruder. I decided to tweak the design a bit. First, I lightened it up by about 40% and created an interlocking corner section.

Check out the updated version does not touch the wires:

UPDATE 9/17/13:
Per request, I have created a cover for a dual extruder print head (PrintheadCover2X.stl). I have not tested out this design, so let me know if it does not work for some reason. It was a pretty quick hack - I just cut it in half and mirrored it.

UPDATE 6/13/14:
Per request, I have included the source Autodesk Inventor CAD files.


I set wall thickness at 0.4 mm, layer height at 0.2 mm and 100% fill.

You'll need to rotate both parts for slicing. They are printed upside-down (grill on build platform) from the STL model orientation.

Hello! I love this printhead cover, but could you possibly do a cover for 2printheads? got mine yesterday and now I can't use your cover anymore...

I've uploaded a modified cover. Let me know if it works okay.

Sorry for the delay... Oh... for the very big delay!
Works very fine! Had to service the printer yesterday and then I realised that I did not mention that...
Will make an Picture of it the next days!

this fit the new extruder?

I had to used 0.35 for the main body. Thanks! Looks great!

nice addition :-)
