Axis cover bellows

Pretty straightforward, would like to see bellows to keep the dust off the rails and ballscrews. Looks like it should be doable with the current layout, just would be a very different shape than any generic designs available.


YES!!! Currently doing work in aluminum and holy it gets messy quickly

I have been searching for something like this ever since I purchased (and inadvertently damaged) my initial laptop 3020 CNC machine. Currently, it is filled with metal shavings that have made their way into every possible bearing, corner, crevice, and opening.

Looks like McMaster-Carr offers a variety of “Bellows,” although I haven’t had a chance to begin experimenting with them yet. It is highly probable that I will need a 3D-printable object for mounting purposes.
