Makerbot Replicator 2x – clip-on filament dust filter

While there are a few dust filters available on Thingiverse, I found that my own dust filter would help me in a few ways:

  • I need one that allows for single handed sponge switching
  • I need one that stays in place, like, on the device
  • and so I need one that clips into the present tube holders

I uploaded it on Thingiverse (link).



There is no impediment to the filament pulling on the filament roll.

To get an even better fit for the clip-on bar at the back of the structure, I left the support materials on the filter while clipping it onto the frame of the 3D printer.
