A cyclone for a Shark Vacuum 1.75"OD flexible hose. When I was using my Lobo Mill, I was producing too many wood chips for the Shark to handle. The cyclone separates the dust as needed and deposits it into a tub at the bottom.

I will be making a mount for the Lobo Mill end in the near future.


Made in Autodesk Inventor. Modified and edited in Blender and HeeksCAD.

The parts stack on top of each other for easy cleaning and fixing. A 1.75" OD vacuum hose is screwed into the inlet port.

There are 3 veins inside in a conical helix to direct dust downwards.

Also, I made a small mistake on the one shown. The cap that holds the vacuum hose is reversed in the .stl files to what is shown in the picture. I corrected it, but I am not up to printing it off again.

This is awesome!
I printed one for my home garage with a modified top, so i can connect a normal vacuum cleaner to it.
It filters fine dust, wood chips, everything... :)

Thank you for sharing this work!

I run Fusion360 and would like to mod it for a standard shopvac. Could you post the Autodesk origin file for the top plate? It would make it easier to change.

I have long ago gotten rid of Inventor. I added some of the files I can discern are the cyclone itself from my backup files.

I'd like to be able to use it with a shopvac too, I think I'm going to either print a tube, or buy some PVC and rig it up. Thanks for the design!

Could you mod this to work with a shop vac?

Need any support for the overhangs on the inlet tube of the top cap, or did that print as it?

Nice job! What filament did you use for this ?

I used some 4 year old clear PLA and yellow ABS.
