When planning a DIY pipe project, it can be difficult to know what connectors you need to bring your vision to life. However, by breaking down your idea into simple shapes, you can easily determine what types of connectors and how many pipes you need to make your project a reality.
The first step in breaking down your DIY pipe project is to determine the basic shapes that make up your project. For example, if you are building a custom shelf out of pipes, the basic shapes may include squares, and rectangles. It's important to sketch your build idea on paper or make a mini build model so you can identify the shapes.
Once you have determined the basic shapes of your project, the next step is to determine how many pipes you need to create those shapes. This will help you determine the number of connectors you need, as well as the total length in pipe. For example in this recent sketch shared by Fritz we can see that the there are a bunch of corners in the shelf that have three pipes joined together.
Now that you have determined the basic shapes and the number of pipes needed to create those shapes, you can easily identify the connectors you need to bring your project to life. The most common types of connectors used in DIY pipe projects include
By identifying the shapes and the number of pipes needed to create those shapes, you can determine the types and number of connectors you need to make your DIY pipe project a success.Going back to the example before, we can then figure out that we need a connector to join three pipes together. In this case, the 90 Degree Connector will fit the bill.
With a little bit of planning and some careful consideration, you can create a beautiful and functional project that is sure to impress. If you need assistance figuring out how to build or design your project, please reach out to us. Thanks for reading and happy building!
