That all makes sense, this is why we have to be very specific!



I've no idea how I'd sell you this as I'm fairly sure the forum don't allow it. Maybe @Angie or @MikeK can clarify.

Agree - so the vac goes inside the narrow end, the adapter goes over the cyclone end!
Is it worth leaving a tolerance at that end? Say 56.5 or even 57 - that end will be permanently
connected so even if loose, tape won't hurt? I'll leave that to you!
Thanks.

Oh no, I will make it to the dimensions asked for! A 2mm difference in diameter is asking to be clogged up with dust even if most of it ends up in the cyclone bucket. As with all adapters you could heat it up to persuade it to fit. Its heated to 200c to melt the filament anyway so warming it up to make it pliable if needed shouldn't be a problem.

I've some more filament arriving and some larger nozzles as the standard 0.4mm one only allows layer thickness' upto about 0.31mm and for things like a dust connector a larger thickness should be fine as we don't need fine details. Let me get that working and try some test prints. I have to make a new fan for my table saw motor and that'll be something I need to make to a specific diameter to go over the shaft so I can see how accurate it prints to a very specific size.

What I don't want to to start taking money from people for prints that end up 0.3mm too small and all the hassle I could end up with.

Thanks. I’ll bow to your experience

Since this is still the most recent 3d printing thread (maybe we just need a thread all about it?)

my new (old) tablesaw needed a new motor fan. So I drew one up and printed it off. Quite pleased with this one.
