Description

I have been cutting Aluminum for some time on my SMW3D R7 CNC. But I wanted to start cutting wood. So I designed a dust shoe and a cyclone separator. The dust shoe is available in a few configurations for both 65mm and 80mm spindle OD.

The Cyclone is designed to be easy to reproduce using off the shelf hardware store parts like 2" PVC elbows, 1/4" plywood, threaded rod,etc.

I also have the native Solidworks models for each part and conversions to X_T, and STEP included so you can modify the raw models to fit your needs if your geometry is slightly different.

Materials and methods

Parts for the Dust Shoe:

- Qty:20 = 8mm OD x 3mm thick neodymium magnets. They can be bought on ebay, aliexpress, or even your local hardware store for a couple dollars.

- Qty:8 = 3mm bolts, or small screws to hold on the lower boot.

- Qty:2 = 5mm nylok nuts.

- Qty:2 = 5mm bolts to clamp the upper section on the spindle and around the shopvac hose.

The major parts for the cyclone separator are:

- Qty:2 = 5 Gallon Pails (the top one cut off 3" into the lower bucket).

- Qty:1 = 5 Gallon Pail Lid.

- Qty:3 = 2" Pipe Elbows.

- Qty:1 = 2" Connection Union.

- Qty:2 = Short Sections of 2" pipe.

- Qty:2 = Small Pieces of 1/4" plywood cut to size on the supplied DXF.

- Qty:2 = Section of 3/8" threaded rod.

- Qty:8 = 3/8" Nylok Nuts.

- Qty:8 = 3/8" Washers.

Result:
Printed great without supports and the mating flange on the print bed. Did not build the cyclone, because I already had one.
Feedback:
Thanks for this great design! I have seen many dust shoes, but this is by far the best. Only improvement I can think of would be making the lower part a bit wider in the spindle area so that one can mount the whole thing a little higher, in case extra length for large / deep 3d parts is needed, where the collet needs to dive lower than the material surface.
