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.
Bill of materials
- 3D printing filament
- 3D Printer
- PC running OpenSCAD
- PC running a slicing program suitable for your 3D printer, such as Slic3r
- Download the OpenSCAD model:
- Alternatively, if you are more technically inclined and have
gitinstalled, clone the entire Project Springtime website from here and look for files
- In OpenSCAD, open this file and select “Design/Render (F6)”.
- In OpenSCAD, export as STL.
- In your slicer, place the previously exported STL file.
- This part has an overhang. Depending on your printer and the default settings in your slicer, you may or may not need to provide extra parameters (e.g. for extra support) to be successful printing this part.
- In your slicer, export the G-Code and print the G-Code.
- Use a file or sharp knife to beautify your part if needed.
