Finished printing my dust covers for the Y & Z stuff, finally got around to milling out a window. It's 71mmx71mm with a 20mmx20mm hole in the middle. Snaps right in, no need for glue!
I saw someone printed a vacuum adapter for their x-carve to help mitigate dust, and they never released the stl. I liked the design, so I made my own. It's two parts, since I couldn't fit it on my print bed in one go. It's designed to accommodate up to 3/4" plywood, probably the thickest thing I'll be cutting for a while.
I found the original creator on Inventables and wanted to link FrancisMarasigan's design here, much love for the orignal concept!
Also , Nightram posted the model files here on youmagine as well:
It's a work in progress, so I'll update it as I get everything finalized. I'll also be adding in the dimensions for the window as well (1/4" acrylic). I printed this at 0.3mm / 205 degress (PLA) / 30% infill, seems to be holding well together. There is also a new adapter for my hose to my cheap sears shopvac as well (35mm ID at the shopvac / 39mm OD for the hose).
I actually printed the one in the picture on my old Printrbot Jr. but I'll be printing a nicer one with the Plus pretty soon.
