My Dyson vac cleaner head brushes stopped spinning because the impeller cracked in half. Couldn't find a spare part anywhere, and didn't want to spend $150 on a new one. So drew it, printed it, fitted it and all good again. Dare say works better than the original ;)


printed 0.2 and fine on UP mini, but I think quite forgiving. Position of shaft can be adjusted slightly (may need to be), but this is easy as is a press fit. Let me know if you have had this problem and I will "talk" you through it..

Hi do you have the Stp file for this ? on solidworks or other 3d software ? thanks

Excellent - I've used a version of this impeller as the heart of my WIP dust extraction system (scaled and with a slightly edited bore shape) :D

What impeller housing did you end up using? I need to make a blower, and this thing looks about the right size. I use only openscad, so complicated models like that are beyond my skill.

I wound up working on something else before I finished! I did get as far as http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:229657 but I don't think it's so suitable for a blower (I was after a sucker, so there are 6 outlets). As to complicated models, I take it you mean the impeller? I have a feeling that sort of thing is possible, although not easy in OpenSCAD. I have a feeling the hull() operator and a for-loop could be the answer!

thanks for the comments! Yes, was thinking of printing the whole thing - good excuse to get a much bigger printer :)

now we ne need all the other parts for a 3D printed Dyson.
so if you have time...  XD

great use of a 3d printer, well done.
