Hello guys,

since our working space doesn’t allow us to weld yet, we needed an alternative for the hopper. Here is what we did:

Material: 4mm MDF
Machine: Laser Cutter
Assembled: normal wood glue

You can find the file here: http://a360.co/2COcQsJ
The hopper’s design is characterized by two parallel surfaces. We designed a lid on the top, it can be combined with a security sensor. There is also an opening in the back to have an emergency close reach to the blades, in case something gets stuck.

@verocont, nice design.
Is it possible / have you thought about making the lid transparent to see what is going on in the shredder?

Actually that is a very good idea! Yes we could disassemble it and replace one side with an acrilic one, which is fully transparent
