3D printed vacuum ejector: First test

After a previous prototype which didn’t work, I tried to make a new one.

This time I decided to start from scratch with a new design and using ABS.

I printed this part vertically to have better alignment in the main axis.

Although some reinforcement with acetone was needed, the prototype is ready to hit the lab.

This time a quick and dirty trial using the hand air gun.

More about this is still to come.
