If you can model it, you can build it! Maker Pipe Minis are a simple and fun way to plan your DIY pipe builds. These small scale replicas of our connector system are made of plastic and pair with off the shelf coffee stirrers. 3D modeling your build with Maker Pipe Minis allows you to see what connectors you need for your project. The mini connectors make the same connections that the regular connectors make so you can plan out your build exactly. One pack includes...

The planning stage of a DIY pipe build can be difficult. We wanted to make planning just as easy as building with Maker Pipe so we created these mini connectors. Coffee stirrers fit easily into the open ends of the connectors easily so you can learn building techniques that translate to the real thing. If you have a 3D printer you can get the stl files for free down below and print your own.
Maker pipe saves beginners both frustration and cost. It eliminates most the cutting-out of glue mistakes. I look forward to an expansion of the variety of connectivity options. The inclusion of a three way connector would be helpful in my opinion. It is not possible to illustrate a three way connector in this literary format. The items are available by special order from Home Depot and other retailers.
Mini joints to mach up a project before you commit. I feel like a child playing with my favorite toys again
Maker Pipe Minis are a great tool that helped me visualize and refine my project. Initially, I bought 4 sets, and that small investment paid for itself in terms of design improvement and saved me both time and money as I put the order together. I definitely recommend using the minis as a step of the design process. Additionally, Kudos to the Maker Pipe staff who provided me with excellent customer service and advice. Thank you.
We think the idea is novel and very good. In our case we gave the kit to our 8 year old grandson who love to build things. Could be marketed as a toy also.
