Hi, @jup2000, what orientation did you print it?

Just like that. You will need minimum support over the free floating edges but you shouldn't need any inside. There should be enough of a slope to not require it.

Thinking more about it, you could flip it upside down and print from the hose opening up and not use any support at all. I haven't printed it in awhile, but I always design things for zero or very minimal support. Again that slope will allow the print without support.

Printed ok, Ender 3, Layer hight: 0.12; Nozzle: 0.4mm; no support inside + raft. Print time ~24h

@jup2000 can you share your design file, I would like to make a modification to better fit my table saw (Woodtec XW029)

Have you considered making a 3D printed zero clearance insert for this saw?

I did, but got lazy and bought the Leecraft one. I'll probably eventually get around to make for my dado set. It shouldn't be too hard using the Leecraft as a template. I'll marinate on the idea.

Ok cool, thanks for the quick reply. I hate the stock plate that came with my saw because it does not sit flush with the table so I have so shim each tab with 1 or 2 washers. The counter sinks are also sloppy, so some of the screw heads stick up. When my printer comes in I'm definitely going to try out the blade guard dust hood - thanks for sharing :)
