DescriptionFor better seal of the cascading pipe connecting to the growing pipe
This is an optional part. It has two parts: a top and a bottom, which need to be 3D-printed. Once printed, they slide into each other from inside and outside the drainage hole of the growing pipe, holding the exiting cascading pipe in place.

Download the OpenSCAD models:
Alternatively, if you are more technically inclined and have
gitinstalled, clone the entire Project Springtime website from here and look for the .scad files in
In OpenSCAD, open this .scad file you want and and select “Design/Render (F6)".
In OpenSCAD, export as STL.
In your slicer, place the previously exported STL file.
In your slicer, you can probably use default parameters for your printer. This is not a part that has to be printed particularly precisely. However, you may not want to use the fastest printing mode, as some aspects of the part are fairly thin, and printing fast may not add enough material to make them sturdy enough.
In your slicer, export the G-Code and print the G-Code.
