Quick Release DW660 Dust Shoe (vertical pipe version)

Maybe measure or ask questions before you blindly print and complain? Or print an adapter? Not that hard. I had a piece of PVC pipe between this and the shop vac hose.

Does anyone know if this works on the MPCNC that’s outfitted with a DW660?

Would it be possible to upload a step file of the main body part? I would like to modify it slightly to fit my hose.

I modeled this using the student version of Creo which expired for me, and I don't have that software anymore. If you are a student (or know a student) you should be able to get it for free, open the .prt files, then you can export them as .stp. The student version is good for a year.

Ok so question. I have finished printing this and it fits like a glove but for the mounting of the dw660 on a 525 mostly printed cnc, the bottom allted clamp obviously wont fit.

Is this to be used without a bottom clamp and the top clamo only or is there a different clamp on can use to secure the bottom part of the spindle??

I'm not familiar with the MPCNC design. This was intended for a Shapeoko2. I think axjurado is planning on modifying this to fit the MPCNC tho.

very nice design. i just printed and realized won't be able to use. what a pain to remove the supports.

in any case, i was wondering if you could share the cad file, so i can modify it to use with my mpcnc. the mpcnc holds the dw660 right where the quick release is, so i would need to do some bolt. let me know if it is possible.


Hey I was wondering if you ever got this to work with your MPCNC? I am looking to do the same.

I'm sorry about the supports, yes I know they are kind of a pain.
I don't use this anymore since I switched to a makita router on my CNC due to high runout issues on the Dewalt. It kept breaking my engraving bits.

The part was made with a student-version of Creo, which I don't have access to anymore. The CAD file will not open on anything other than the student version.

Mine remixed from funi's design. I didn't have his CAD files, I just had to model it from scratch while overlayed on his stp file.

Thanks. If you can share them I should be ok since I have creo as well.
No biggie with the supports.

Thanks again

Thanks man! Appreciate it!

I printed this out today and gave it a whirl. It did a decent job and picks up 80% of the dust or so. I may cut up a 2-litre bottle and tape around the edgese to keep the rest contained and suck up. I had to sand just a little bit to the inside of the hose connector to fit my shopvac and I put a strap around the hose and the Dewalt to keep it straight. If it bobs a bit, it jiggles loose a little, but didn't fall off after an hour.

secretspy, Thanks for the cool part -- what scaling should I use for this? As shown in the Thingiview preview, the model is less than 1cm in size, and that's how it loads in Slic3r and Craftware for slicing.

Sounds like Slicer and Craftware are assuming millimeters, but I modeled the part in inches. Scale by 2540% (25.4mm in an inch) and you should be good to go. This is a fairly common occurrence with 3D models. The 3D printing community seems to like mm but I like inches because of my background in engineering in the U.S.
