Are you able to make more variants of this that could fit different diameters on each side? Or better yet, a parametric one that could adjust dimensions on each end of the gate? Dust collection here in the US is a mix of different sizes from Rockler, Powertec, 2.25" vacuum cleaner nozzles, PVC pipes, etc.

Hi, I know it's always a problem to have different connectors to every other brand in almost every aspect of life - that's definitely sucks :) I could probably do additional size for 100mm pipes - this would be obvious expand of the system, but to do it for every other sizes it's too much work and I wouldn't have way to test it. And testing took me a quite a while.
Parametric would be nice, but I don't think I would know how to do it. It's definitely doable - since there are online generators for iris mechanism - but I don't know if what Thingiverse offers is enough and it would probably require to do the project from scratch.

Cool. Preparing the aspiration system in my domestic workshop with your system. Thank you. Very good job
