    There’s some awesome galvanized pipe at Lowe’s that I thought would be perfect for this project, it’s thick walled and very rigid but when I  mic’ed it the OD is 26.7.

    Has anyone used pipe this size?  Are there slightly bigger part .stl files?  Did someone scale up the parts 5%?

    Thanks,

    Conrad

    Makes the bolt holes bigger as well, so it doesn’t really work that easy. Then the Z axis will be all kinds of wonky. We tried with 25 to 25.4…didn’t work well enough.

    I am sure you will get a usable machine but not sure what other issues will pop up.
