Complete parts in Dowload.. cutview only for presentation.

Intended for Ultimaker or other printers, capable of about 20x20x20cm builds

Selfcooked part from what i know is hidden in a dyson..
Lowpoly but maybe i have to make the chanels more streamlined.

nine tornardos in tree stages, The outer one, eight inner and the core cone.

Still needs a needs a motor setup.. for now i hang it to my shopvacuum as additional cleaner. I bought a bucket in the right size and placed the thing in its lid.
The Inlet hose needs to come in from the side and in the correct angle so the the tornardo-effect is enhanced.

Dont forget to share me a pic of your print!

I've just printed this. The holes in the 'Deckel' part are too small for the tubes to pass through.

sorry, this is a dead project right now.. i dont have time to work on it.

Did you ever end up making this? How did it perform? No offence, this is intended as a non-emotional comment but a request for clarification/additional detail/feedback.

I doubt anyone is going to risk using THAT much of their printer time and filament on an untested model the creator doesn't have enough confidence in to try before asking others to give it a try too. :)


What about smoothness of inside of the cones? Isn't that crucial?
Do you have any pictures or videos of this thing working? (preferably with sound ;D )

i didnt test print this yet because i dont have enough filament at hands.
gonna try with the next badge.

The smoothness is not the most important thing. but i can divide it into more polys later.
Its the correct angles and the right distances of the parts that form the fastest possible spinning air vortex.
The faster its spinning, the more centrifugal force is generated and thereby more dust removed from the air.

my setup is as loud as a vacum cleaner is (combined with cnc spinle and other loud machine parts).

I was just curious if those groves-layers(of the print) make any sound (hum, whistle) just like blowing through ribbed pipe makes it whistle.

My cyclone build didn't involve any engineering :) I just took a ruler and just like that I came up with the dimensions :)
It works.

Not shure if this could be possibly designed to work as a filterless water purifier.
I am not a specialist for centrifugal forces and water cleaning :)

only for fishtanks and hydroponic plant systems of course..

i think about just printing the divider and vent parts.
then produce the airspin chambers otherwise
