3D printed dust collection shroud for shaper

A woodworking shaper is a high powered wood working tool that is something like an industrial strength router table. A shaper was donated to local makerspace Loveland CreatorSpace for the woodshop that was missing dust collection covers.  Loveland CreatorSpace member Richard designed these dust collection covers, and IT-Works 3D printed them on a LulzBot Mini to last in a busy workshop with 1.5mm shell, 30% infill, and printed in strong, tough, Colorado made Inova-1800 co-polyester.

Yes, that’s glitter in the black Inova, we know a guy 😉

  1. Do you have any photos of this mounted on your shaper? I’m curious how it performed for you.

    1. This is an older post that as the new company owner, we no longer have access to. Sorry!
