Design Talk – 3D Printable Air Dryer for Vacuum Chamber!

So I have been experimenting with with using a 5 gallon vacuum chamber (see more here: ift.tt/2ZiUR9N ) for drying / dehydrating my 3D printing filament however when represureing the chamber I was letting some amount of hydrated air back in at velocity so I decided to create an Air Dryer attachment that would thread on to the 1/4 inch pipe threaded inlet of the unit and place a desiccant pack (see more here: amzn.to/2X7QGNv ) inside of the dryer to wick out the moisture of the air entering the chamber. In addition, we created two sizes based upon the size of the desiccant pack used or reused. So there is a small and large version. In addition I added to mounting holes for two M3 bolts (see more here: amzn.to/2NeO1wX) to hold the cover/cap on the body. Two while you can force tap the M3 bolts, however I use this speed tap handy to create a quicker and cleaner fit (see more here: amzn.to/2DSoPIj ).

Design Talk – This 3D Printed Saved Me a TON of Money!


I have always wanted a studio camera stand (see more here: amzn.to/2KOSnx5 ) however never wanted to pay the crazy money for one. Then I came up with the idea, why don’t I simply buy a projector stand (see more here: ift.tt/2XMxIz5 ) and design a 3/8 inch style mounting head for a robust ball head (see more here: ift.tt/30pTS7F) and make my own for pennies on the dollar! Well that is what I did and it works great!

Note, the ballhead listed here has protruding base so I designed a rounded version for that one and also a flat version for other types so either way your covered! Here are a couple other accessories I found useful:

15mm Rail System: ift.tt/2XUlVyD
Affordable Ring Light: ift.tt/30pTTIL
Affordable 4K Still/Video camera: ift.tt/2XWdMJW

As i also designed an mount for the ring-light to 15mm rail system which you can see here on Thingiverse: ift.tt/30pTUMP as well as I will be adding to this collection with things as related I have also uploaded an action camera to ring-light mount which you can see here: ift.tt/2XMGTzu
