The side covers are plastic panels that can be easily attached to the housing of the printer. They’ve been designed so as to provide protection from drafts and temperature differences that can take place in the printing room. Constant temperature inside the printing chamber is very important to avoid cracks on the model and the problem of warping. Thanks to the use of side covers, the model is being protected during the printing process and at the same time it adheres to the platform more easily. The set consists of side covers, one front cover, magnets and hinges. The front panel is fixed to the housing with two hinges and closed by hidden magnets, whereas the side panels are snap-on.
We recommend using the side covers especially for large-sized prints and prints made of materials with high or medium shrinkage level like Z-ABS.

The Zortrax M Series includes two printer models right now: the M200 and the M300. These printers are similar in terms of design and technology. The most important difference is their size: the M200 has a 200x200x180mm workspace, whereas the M300 has an increased 300x300x300mm workspace.

The following manual shows the installation of side covers on the M200. For the M300, these procedures look the same.

Front Cover Installation

Upper Magnet Installation

Prepare one magnet and the positioning element marked UP, and put them together. Peel off the security tape of the magnet and glue it inside the housing.

The positioning elements marked UP and DOWN help to determine the height at which the magnets should be placed.

Lower Magnet Installation

Prepare the other magnet and the positioning element marked DOWN, and put them together. Peel off the security tape of the magnet and glue it inside the housing.

Upper Hinge Installation

Remove the security tape from the upper hinge using a scalpel and tweezers. Attach the hinge to the frame of the printer. The positioning element will help you set the front cover in the housing properly.

Lower Hinge Installation

Remove the security tape from the lower hinge using a scalpel and tweezers. Attach the hinge to the frame of the printer. The positioning element will help you set the front cover in the housing properly.

Front Cover Installation

Install the front cover in the hinges.
