3D model description

I have remixed this cyclone THINGIVERSE 1447214, to use on my CNC machine. I needed connections for standard 2.25 inch vacume hoses a small caputure container with a wide mouth.

I made the cyclone from PLA with 6 layers and 30% infil. I think it is overbuilt and 5 layers with 20% should be enough. The remaining parts where 20% and 5 layers. The PLA makes nice treads but they need woking together for a smooth fit. The mason jar threads fit perfect with the peanut butter jars on first try.

The mason jar was a remix from CANNING JAR LIDS - THINGIVERSE 19105. I chose canning jars because they are readily avalable in grocery stores in durable clear plastic. Mine come from peanut butter jars. I have made an adaptor for small and large jars, so you can choose the size jar for your needs.

This cyclone does not attach at the base (witch is an advantage) and so needs to hanger. The hanger is printed from PETG, 5 layers 20% infil.

The vacume conntor part took 70 hours to print and is the only part needing supports. The cyclone part 30 hours, the hanger 20 hours and the adaptor 6 hours. It is a long print, be for me it was worth it.
