This is kinda a double post, sorry I can’t find my original.
I built a slide out platform for my pro, so I can run larger stuff thru the passthru slots, and had issues with making a collapsible vent pipe, and went thru several versions until I found the ‘secret sauce’
here are the photos.
What makes the sauce secret? What are the parts list?
LOL, the secret was an Infinity 4" hose, that’s an aluminum hose coated in plastic, so it can handle the opening and closing without developing the pin holes like the cheaper plain aluminum tubing…
Amazon.com: AC Infinity Flexible 4-Inch Aluminum Ducting, Heavy-Duty Four-Layer Protection, 8-Feet Long for Heating Cooling Ventilation and Exhaust : Patio, Lawn & Garden
Something I need to work on, but probably have to wait til we can get into a new house. Looks good though!
Pretty sure that is the same hose I am using.
load better then the homedepot hose that comes with The GF
Love those little peeks into someone else’s shop. What’s on the walls, on the shelves, etc.

I actually really like the insulated duct from home depot. It’s solid plastic, and the insulation greatly cuts the noise of both internal and external fans. You could easily slot it into your solution.

actually with bringing the infinity fan outside, my setup is whisper quiet with the singing of the laser as its only accompaniment.
I haven’t seen that one, but Harbor Freight actually sells a pretty decent kit.
It has more than what most people need since it’s a dust collector accessory kit, and not sure if the hose is sold separately, but the hose works fantastic.

My external fan solution:
If you track my rantings, you know I recently have moved my ventilation (and fan) outside of my house to get back some quiet - here is how I made my inside fan an OUTSIDE FAN.
the first thing I did was put in a ‘drop’ (or a “T” ) to catch any rainwater / condensation, dirt, anything that would be bad for the Glowforge.
I pass the power and control cable thru a 1" hole, (that’s filled with removable plastic (in case…)
the encloser is to keep water / and vegas sun off …

oooohhhh moving the fan outside. I did not see this post before. Going to have to think about this idea! I wonder if my neighbor would complain. (I have one particular neighbor in mind…) On the other hand, considering how loud our A/C units all are, it’s a quiet as a kitten purring. lol
I have witnessed some amazingly loud kitten purrs.
