Aura with GF air filter 100 Question

Afternoon everyone - does anyone know if the GFAF 100 air filter can work with the Aura machine? It appears they both use a 4" diameter hose, but I wondered if there was a special reason it should not be used. The personal air filters are sold out as well as the replacement filters, etc. Thanks.

Your best option is to vent outdoors. The original GF filter cartridges are often sold out, and are very expensive.

If you choose to go that way, get a space cartridge. It will work just fine.


Thank you. I’ve heard/read that venting outdoors can damage the machine due to humidity, temp changes, etc. but I see alot of recommendations to do so. Any ideas on how to solve for humidity and temp changes?

When you’re not actively cutting, have a door of some sort at the back of your machine separating it from the outdoors. It’s that easy :slight_smile:

I use this one:

There are easily purchasable ones:

Some folks actually disconnect their hoses entirely (using quick disconnects of many sorts).

YMMV, but it’s an easy fix. I live in Indiana so get both humidity and temp changes with no issues.


What was said above - simply disconnect the vent hose from the machine, or install a “blast gate” that provides air-tight isolation.

A filter is a last-resort for people with no ability to vent outdoors.


Thank you so much! This is great info and very helpful!
