im really new to all this but I thought I would give this a go this is my first big long build ,,,everything went great until the end !! any ideas why this happened I wasn't there when it happened I set it in the morning and when I got home it was done it took about 10 hours.
I set it at 50% infill
0.15mm layer height
thats all I can remember

I just received my dust boot, nice product!

In Canada it has proven difficult to find an appropriate brush strip to use with this device but I finally found one that should do. Sharing the link for other Canadians.

I am having some difficulty finding an adapter for our ShopVac brand vacuum. It is the larger diameter hose, 2.5" I believe. I may see if they have an adapter that can allow me to use their smaller hose.

Perfect fit! Mine took about 9 hours to print at default settings. I'm sure it would have been less if i where a 3D print expert. I just a brush ring. My 1 7/8 hose goes on outside of tube perfectly.

I'm glad it is working well for you! Post your make of it, I'd love to see it. :)

How does this do with the cooling air flow the router uses to cool it? Looks like a great design!

The router seems to stay cool enough and the shoe does suck away the dust. But I haven't run my router for hours on end either.

Did everyone print this in PLA? Do you think it's strong enough? Thanks.

I've only every printed this with PLA. Seems plenty strong.

Is the outlet made to fit a 1-1/4" hose?

The ID of the hole where the hose attaches is 1 3/8"

I designed it to fit the 5 gallon harbor freight Wet/Dry Vacuum we have:

Great Dust Boot. I made a cheap dust collector to go between the boot and a wet/dry vacuum. They work well together.

I also have the 1000mm X-Carve and this works without the Dewalt ring. There's enough tension from the lever to hold it in place. I bought a cheap dust broom and plucked the bristles out and hot glued them in. Only thing I may do is trim the bristles down a bit. I'll post my make soon.

Is there any chance you could upload the original model please? I am wanting to modify the dust shoe but trying to edit STL files just makes things so much harder. Cheers

Done. Enjoy! I'd love to see pictures uploaded when you're done!

Thank you for that. I have uploaded my print of your original model as a make. It looks great and i'm sure it will work great. I just need to trim the bristles. What I am hoping to achieve by editing your file is move the suction attachment over to the left to allow the end diameter to be 50mm so I can attach the 50mm vacuum hose directly to the dust shoe without the need for a printed adapter. I'm no modeling expert so I will see how I get on.

I have an X-Carve with the dewalt router, will the shoe fit the default bracket?

The shoe attaches to the router via the depth ring that DeWalt ships with the 611 router, not the bracket the router is mounted into on the CNC.

That said, I don't own an X-Carve, so I can't guarantee if the bracket and dust shoe won't interfere with each other in some other way.

Looking for some help. I'm wanting to use this dust shoe on a Makita 700 CNC Router, has anyone been able to make this work?
TIA - Andrew

Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think the Makita 700 Router doesn't have an adjustment ring like the Dewalt 611. You may be able to scale the print down to fit that Makita router, but it would only me help in place by the small clamping lever and you would have to get creative with the vacuum attachment.

If you do choose to scale the print, the print is currently sized for a 2.75" diameter router.

I don't have that Makita router, but I may have some time after hours this evening to scale the model and modify the vacuum attachment. You'ed have to PM me with the diameter of your router and vacuum hose. Even then I can't guarantee that it would work after those modifications.

I have a Shapeoko 3 XXL I don’t own a 3D printer. Do you sell this dust boot for the Dewalt 611? I’m interested.
