The DC35/DC44 Animal comes with a wall mount charger/accessories holder. It also comes with an extra accessory, which doesn't fit the accessories holder :(
A better redesigned version now available at Shapeways.com
. (also a wall mount for Dyson V8 tools)
I have reworked the design with a better clip to firmly hold the accessories, and tailored to the materials and printing capabilities at Shapeways. The final design has now been printed & tested.
The new design is not suited to FDM printers.
This Thingiverse Version:
So I modelled the end section of the accessories and the female end of the accessories holder in OpenSCAD to make an extension, like a double adapter.
It should be good for the other DC series models too, like the DC59. You could also use the ends as the basis of a custom nozzle.
Use View Full Size for a better view.
This version is a Work-In-Progress:
A. originally the plate was half as thick and was too flexible, as I had already glued the bits on, I just printed a second plate and glued it to the bottom. The plate here is thicker, but I have not printed one to confirm its rigidity. If you print one can someone let me know if its ok.
B. WIP as the tab I designed (intending it to clip into the recess and retain the accessory) not doing a good job and tending to break off (in ABS - haven't tried PLA). As the holders point upward the retainer is not required. It would have been good if it worked, to have some accessories pointing down too, could have had less width to the extension. If anyone has any idea for a better mechanism please let me know. I included a 1-wide plate if anyone wants to try a one up/one down extension.
I have given up for now...
2 dyson...outside.stl, &
(the inside/outside are the ones split in two for better printing, I included the ...whole.stl versions for those lucky enough to have printer types which handle overhang, or who like to use support)
The plate has markings to align the three other parts for acetone/gluing to the plate.
Fit the small power head into the right slot, the extension in the left, and the crevice & combination tools on top of the extension.
