I’ve made a few 3D printed things recently, and I thought I’d share.

Vent Tube Cap

I was looking for a vent tube cap for 4" schedule 40 PVC, and I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for, so I made one. This will go underground and drain into gravel in case there is condensation or other moisture in a pair of vertical ventilation tubes.

This took almost no time at all to model in software and only about 6 hours to print. I made a second revision that is much shorter beacuse I didn’t have enough clearance for the initial version, since the pipes are already installed.

House Model

The next item is a 3D model of our house. This took a solid day to draw in software and another day to refine. I printed it at 1/8" = 1’ scale so I could use my drafting ruler. The family proceeded to make small paper figures to inhabit the model.
