So I have been having some trouble sourcing 25mm conduit and I have everything printed already the last thing i need is the conduit.
I have found someone that has 25mm piping but its completely solid.
My question is can i use the 25mm solid piping for the following:
And then for Z Rails I reprint the parts for 25.4mm and use 25.4mm piping which i can source.

If you mix sizes, at some point you will have a part that interacts with both sizes, right?
I would think the moving x,y rails would benefit from the lower weight too.February 14, 2017 at 5:56 am #27453
Yeah i think you maybe right, im just thinking what i can do without reprinting everything. I’ll keep searching around and I know at some point ill build another one but i just want to see how this works for the first time.February 14, 2017 at 6:02 am #27454
Dui, ni shuo de duiParticipant
Yes, it should work, no big issue.
I think it is pretty easy to adjust the rollers and motor holders for slightly bigger tubes. As long as you re-print the central section it should probably be ok.February 14, 2017 at 8:30 am #27473
There are 3 sizes to chose from. What size is the conduit in your country?
Solid bar is not a good idea unless you are getting it dirt cheap and even then I would still only use it for the outer rails and legs.February 14, 2017 at 6:00 pm #27535
I am based in New Zealand, and have found a place to get 25.4mm tubing. But yeah i was thinking maybe just doing the outer rails but i will still keep searching to be honest id even pay a little extra to get it shipped here if its reasonable as I just want to get this up and running to see what i can do with it 🙂
