Dryer lint vacuum attachment for Dyson DC27 (I think) by dmatsumoto Nov 27, 2012


Our new dryer has an annoying thin screen that allows too much lint to bypass it, and we have to constantly try to vacuum it out. But the attachments I have for the Dyson don't get into the nooks and crannies, so I came up with an adapter that would allow me to use an ordinary plastic hose.

Go to your local hardware store and pick up 1' of plastic hose with an OD of 5/8" and ID of 1/2".

Print both pieces. Both can be printed without support material. I purposely lofted the interior of the top of the adapter for this reason. The large opening is also lofted to match the taper of the end of the Dyson vacuum cleaner. The "fingers" are also tapered, along with the inside of the nut to try to make them compress the hose, which seems to work.

Stick one end of the hose through the "nut", and then continue to pass this end into the "adapter" until the end of the hose is flush with the interior wall. The intent was to have a lip on the inside, but when I added the loft I destroyed this feature and didn't realize it.

In a future iteration, I would probably make the adapter entry a little larger on the next pass, as well as make the "fingers" a little thicker.
