Introduction: The PVC Pipe

Picture of The PVC Pipe

When designing new things we often use things that can be purchased at the store.

These are referred to as "Purchased" or "Standard" components. Standard components are typically used "as-is" within a design. If they are changed it is rare for critical dimensions to change.

For example, we may change the length of the PVC pipe, but the diameter of the pipe will not change.

Instructions

  1. Drag a cylinder shape to the workplane.
  2. Make the cylinder to 21.45mm square and 20mm tall.
  3. To make the cylinder more smooth, set the sides slider in the inspector to 64.
  4. Continue to the next step.

Step 1: Make the Inside of the Pipe

Now we need to create the inside of the pipe and align it.

Instructions

  1. Drag a cylinder shape to the workplane.
  2. Make the cylinder to 15.5mm in diameter and 20mm tall.
  3. To make the cylinder more smooth, set the Siders slider in the inspector to 64.
  4. Set the cylinder to be a hole.
  5. Continue to the next step.

Step 2: Align the Pipe Pieces

Now we just need to cut out the center of the pipe and we are ready to build the mouthpiece that will attach to the pipe.

Instructions

  1. Select both shapes and align their centers using the Align tool on the toolbar.
  2. Group the shapes into a single object using the group button on the toolbar.
  3. Change the color to white to match the color of a PVC pipe.
  4. Continue to the next step.
