Maker Pipe Minis | 3D Modeling Connectors

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...

Maker Pipe Minis

  • Connects to off the shelf coffee stirrers
  • Easy to use
  • Allows you to plan your build easily


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.

Sun shade canopy/grill station

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!

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.
