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.
I love these kits in miniature!, These are exactly what you need when you can't find things you need!,Now I can build them. It requires patience but end result is great, you can paint to look like steel or whatever you need . Will buy again for sure
Bought two sets for a mock model before buying the products for actual design. I recommend using this as a model that are STATIC. if you want this to have any dynamic movement for just to see for models with different movements. I don't recommend it.
- Able to picture what it will seem like.
- Enough Fittings for most of projects
- Provides coffee straws
- Mini Fittings are Sturdy
- Adjustable Angles are not smooth but hard to adjust
- Limited fittings for adjustable model
- Straws doesn't fit into minis smoothly (breaks the straw)
I will give 4 stars because the angle adjustable movements are not smooth (bends the straws before I can adjust it) and Need more fitting minis of other connectors not on the list.
At the end, most of people will be satisfied with the product unless you want some more adjustable angle connectors for dynamic models. Hope Makerpipe upgrades it
This system is brilliant—a million ways to use it!
Fascinated with the different ideas of building a 13' x 8' canopy with Maker Pipe Connections and Make Pipe Minis. However, a bit overwhelmed on where/how to start.
Still mulling around with ideas of how to use T posts base(already have) with either PVC or EMT. Either way, I can't wait to get started. YAY!
