DescriptionCovers currently unused holes in a horizontal growing pipe.
This is an entirely optional part, and you can solve the problem differently with some kind of flap. This is a 3D-printed part that covers unused holes in a horizontal growing pipe and thus prevents algae from growing.
We provide two models:
- The normal hole cover
- The same hole cover, but with straight trim on one side, as if cut off with a saw. This is useful if for some reason, your to-be-covered hole is too close to the growing pipe’s end cap.

In your slicer, you can probably use default parameters for your printer. (You know your printer better than we do.)
In your slicer, export the G-Code and print the G-Code with your 3D printer.
