danielwould shared this project on Thingiverse!

This is an adapter for a fairly standard ribbed vacuum hose. I based the design on the one I managed to break.
There are two parts to this (though they are included as a single model so that it prints in place as a unit), the lower part ‘screws’ onto the ribs of the hose, the upper part fits standard tool dust ports etc. The two parts rotate freely of each other (Assuming it prints ok)
so that you can connect to a tool but the hose is still free to spin etc.

I printed mine in PETG, 0.2mm, with minimal supports – I set slicer with an overhand threshold of 10, so only the base of the outer shell and the start of the internal threading get support.
The rest is designed to print without.
Took about 5.5 hours on a prusa mk3

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
