    Anybody find a way to attach the dust shoe to the gantry and not the router yet? Just milled out some 3/4 ply with a 1/4 endmill and my dust shoe didn’t really pick up much until it was almost all the way through the plywood. I’ve seen other cnc routers that have the dust shoe assembly attached to the gantry and the router goes up and down through it. I have a couple ideas, but if something already exists, that would be easier/probably better.

    probably tried all the dust shoes available in Thingiverse, I always end up manually holding my vac. Need to start learning Fusion 360 asap 🙂

    Ditto, going to try printing this tonight and test it by the weekend.

    I had an idea about this recently actually. Perhaps nozzles could be attached to the bottom of each opening on the z-axis conduit and an adapter on top to go the vacuum. Here is a quick sketch I did that explains it better, the scale is way off. Any thoughts on this? Pic

    It’s a cool idea, but the nut traps block a pretty good chunk of the tubes. I’ve clogged my current dust shoe opening with plywood strings already, and it’s about 2 inches square.
