Are you sure the end cap prints without supports, I’m not seeing that?
Matthew Barker –
I printed it without supports, but you should switch supports touching build plate on the end cap
Can I ask where you obtained your 35mm PVC pipe? I searched a couple of my local DYI stores and have had zero luck.
Matthew Barker –
Any plumbing store will have loads of it. It’s the same pipe you use under the sink in the kitchen.

Matt; I hate to say I’m running into a similar problem with locating 35mm OD PVC Pipe. I’ve even tried supplying from UK companies that would work in MM primary and none seem to supply this. All kitchen plumbing tends to be 1″, 32mm OD pipe, and none of the imperial or metric pvc sizing charts I’ve located even illustrate that 35mm OD PVC Pipe is a thing… They all show 1″/33.6mm or 1 1/4″/42.2mm in imperial charts, and 32mm or 40mm in metric stores.
Can you point us to an online store that supplies this? UK or US? Printing pipe seems like a waste of plastic! 🙂
Matt Barker –
You can use a domestic waste pipe which has a 36mm outside diameter. 32mm inside diameter http://www.hendersons.co.uk/pipework2/page2.html
This is often called 32mm or (inch and a quarter)

Couple of things for you regarding this set.
For your US customers, the pipe size they need to use “standard 40, 1.25 inch’ pvc pipe. That’s the closest that we can get to fit. Having said that, to use this size pipe, you need to scale it about 105% to make it fit properly.
Also, is there any chance that you could remove the rivets that are on the inside of the pipe connectors? Though I can see the use of them, it makes it a pain to try and sand them off.
Thanks and keep up the great work!
Matt Barker –
Thanks for the heads up on that, I’ll make a mod that has the rivets removed

We updated the file to include a version without the rivets.

I absolutely love these, I had no problem finding the right pipe size once Matt responded with conversation and a bit of scaling, but my big issue is that I cannot for the life of me cut the pipe straight. I got a good pipe cutter and it’s still always crooked at the edge. Any chance of getting pipe models added to this pack so I can just print the tubes?

We will defiantly look at doing this in a future update.
