This is an adaptor to connect a hose to the water tap on the Delonghi Eletta coffee machine. The water tap is being used at the descaling process. This connector allows you to connect a hose to the tap and drain the water to the sink.
The Delonghi Eletta water tap has the following dimensions (black nozzle), diameter: 11 mm, height: 6 mm. I used a standard water hose with a diameter of about 12 mm.
For printing I used ColorFabb NGEN filament with a glass transition temperature of 85 degrees Celsius. Plain PLA filament will deform because of the water temperature.
- filament with a high glass transition temperature (e.g. ColorFabb NGEN)
- water hose
- rubber band or something alike to fix the adaptor to the tap
