I ran out of vacuum bagging valves for molding composite parts & didn't want to wait to have more shipped, so I printed this up in a pinch.


This model is designed around 1/2" id tubing, but can be tweaked for whatever you need.

the two parts do not go together .. not the same diameters ..

I just printed this , but had some issues, so wondering if you might want to give some advice;

  1. After I took of the support material I couldn't get the screw to screw on. Could you advice on how you took off your support materials to get the screw to thread?
  2. What resolution did you use? I used a dimensions printer to print mine.
  3. I could easily remove the support materials from the valve, but the screw cap ;; very difficult, even after using sodium hydroxide to remove support materials. Any advice here?

Thanks in advance!!!

Have you had a chance to test these yet?

Not yet. It's printed up & I intend to use it for a project in the next week or so.
