House management wanted me to fix a loose connection on her 25 year old Dyson, the hose keep coming out when she pulled it along, so this called for yet another fix by 3D printing..
After a few initial test prints I got it to work to her satisfaction.. :thumbsup

I think you struck out on this one, chief. Mrs. The Hat wanted a new vacuum, not patching the old one. :D

PS Nice job on the fix! You're making the 3D printer thing look better and better. :thumbsup

@The Hat, how is it fixed at either end - pressure fit or is it glued?

The first bits are just a good tight fit into the vacuum and into my second connection and the hose end has clips to secure it while allowing it to rotate.

The original connection only used suction and that hose didn’t rotate.. Does that make sense.. !

Called upon by house management for yet another new repair, but got to it this time before it split completely.. Easy-peasy..
