  1. I'm gonna 3D print a cyclone filter and it'll take about 3 days and about 500g PETG plastic. Oh boy. I hope nothing fails during that time. That filter will be a pre-filter for my vacuum in order to get my CNC shavings there before it gets into my vacuum. I'll plan to cut mostly wood and acrylic which will most likely not damage anything but it'll be a safety guard. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2829268

    1. @adiwan Sounds to me like you want to CNC in a vacuum/LPE. But I can not figure out why you would want to do that.

      1. @drinkingpony I don't want my CNC in a vacuum. There would be no pressure difference to suck out the shavings. Also the motors would heat up.

        1. @adiwan Yeah that is why it would make NO sense. So what are you planning ?

          I mean you probably told already but probably did not understand it. I mean, pre-filter for a vacuum that is not a vacuum ?

          1. @drinkingpony with "vacuum " I mean vacuum cleaner, the household device. I was sloppy with my language

            1. @adiwan OHHH. Now I see, I think. I still would not personally use my vacuum cleaner ( Lets call him Henry ) to suck out CNC parts, even if pre-filtered, because I think that would be really terrible for Henry.

              And my Henry is certified-pre-exploded. so one would think I would care less about my Henry.

              And now I said Henry so many times the word has gone weird on me

              1. @drinkingpony I have access to an industrial shop vac but it is way too strong and loud. It will suck out everything off the table.
