      Pipe supports

      Scaling up some wargaming details, for some industrial piping around various industries.  Sized these to use 3/4" PVC pipe.  Working on 45 and 90 degree bends next.

      Cool!  I have a lot of short scrap 3/4 pipe in my basement if you want some!

      Bob,

       

      If you are looking for pipe fittings to print, look @ McMaster.com they have 3d models available for download of all kinds of pipe fittings. I rescaled to 1:20.3 for my use.

      McMaster-Carr (www.mcmaster.com) is a great source. Many parts, not just pipe fittings, are already modeled and can be downloaded in a number of file formats.  For the more adventurous, here is a link to one of my pages with some catalogs of a variety of items used in pressure vessel and piping assemblies, including vessel heads, pipe fittings of various types, pipe hangers and valves. Modeling up to the viewer. Beware, some of the PDFs are LARGE.  https://digitalstraightedge.com/books/Pressure_Vessels_and_Piping.html

       

      Another source for models of all kinds of stuff is www.3dcontentcentral.com. This site is primarily a Solid Works site, but other file formats are available.  There is also GrabCad https://grabcad.com/library?softwares=stl-for-3d-print&sort=most_downloaded&tags=server and Trace Parts https://traceparts.com/en
