Description

This is a strange use case: use a traditional vacuum cleaner to clean a robotic one.

The official robot cleaning guide says you have to clean the dusty filter with tapwater. If you do so you close the pores of the filter by creating a thin, cement-like layer on the filter's surface and it will be useless after a couple of cleaning.
To prevent this clean your Roborock filter by just using an old vacuum cleaner instead and you will never have to buy new filters again in every month or so!
Just connect the Roborock filter to the old vacum using this adapter and turn on the suction and in a few seconds the filter will be cleaned properly.

I have designed the adapter to fit to my Roborock S6's filter but I guess the S60 S65 S5 MAX T6 models are also using the same type. Also you can easily alter the Fusion 360 design to match with other filters: https://a360.co/2Xr9NCW

Materials and methods

You can apply some support but the bridging length is minimal so not really neccessary.

@fns720 Thanks again! ... I'm a Roborock S6 user since only two weeks now and I must admit that your adapter just made the worst part of my Roborock S6 experience (the cleaning part) much more easier :) ... Even tough my old vacuum is quite strong, I still had to tickle tap the filter to get a satisfying result. ... But anyways, the Roborock filter <> Vacuum adapter will be my first choice from now on :) Thanks again!
