I 3D printed this vacuum head. It is meant for the Nomad 883 Pro, I think the non-Pro needs different dimensions.
The main body is PLA, the skirt is a flexible TPU filament, basically 3D printed polyurethane. Two parts super-glued together. The main body attaches to the Z carriage by a screw that applies tension against the carriage.
Since 3D printing was used, it takes about zero effort to build one of these things. I did normal post-print-processing, tapped that hole for the screw, superglue the two halves together.
The hose is 1.25 inch diameter, fits perfectly, just shove it in there.

What do you think? I got a vacuum with a HEPA filter and some respirators and I’m getting ready to cut some garolite for a robot.
Should I make it taller so that the screw hooks over the bottom of the Z carriage?
