Chuck tests out his 3D printed adjustable vacuum adapter on his Ryobi Table saw. The design is based on a simple coupling he found on Thingiverse that he up sized 200% and then used in Tinkercad to design a base and funnel to make the fully positional vacuum hose extension. The original purpose was to collect sawdust flying off the blade and he puts it to the test in this weeks Filament Friday.
The Coupling’s were printed on the Fabrikator Mini using left over DaVinci Red ABS Filament at 0.2 layer, 30% fill sliced iwth Simplify3D. The Base and Funnel were printed in PLA on the DaVinci Jr. at 0.3 layer and 30% fill sliced with XYZware.
Its designed to fit a Harbor Freight Shopvac hose.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
