Hi everyone I got a project in university which I need to design a new industrial product.
My partner and I were thinknig of making a telescopic glass(sleeve) which draped on a driller or an electric screwdriver and it purpose is to stable it while working vertically or angularly. In addition, prevent dirt and dust to be scattered around.

I have a few questions about it:
First which materials should I use that will handle the pressure and the heat outcome of the work?
And won't be expensive for producting from the financial issue.(We thought about a silicon rubber for the edges of the glass and a stiff plastic for the body)
Second do you think this product i useful and needed in the self  home repairing work market?

Product Sketch attached*

Thanx for the cooperation.

Sometimes I've used a plastic (pvc, pva, hdpe?) sleeve for overhead holes awing <100mm.  Bit of a pain actually, but useful as a dust catcher.  There's also Wolfcraft Tecmobil drill stabilisers available too, which are a bit gimmicky.  Then there's some self contained vacuum attached dust collectors from Karcher, or ovate vacuum attachment dust collectors from many of the current vac & power tool mnfr's too.  Useful for dust free hammer drilling, but completely independent of the drill, which are great.

Then there's even some drill attached telescopic attachments too, which I suspect are more trouble than they're worth.

My suggestion would be to use a plastic material,  polypropylene.
This material got lots of pros, plus it is cost effective.

In order to craft that sort of part that you need, you can reach out plastic factories.

Thank you for your advice, I have another question,
How can I make sure the dust won't spread around after I remove the cap?

While working I usually improvise some sawdust capture and it just works,
Pehaps you could think of something elastic to put between the surface to the edge of the cap.
