Maya ben david 3D prints bypass components to fit onto water pipes

Posted on May 23, 2014 at 02:05am

israeli designer maya ben david has created ‘bypass’, a system of 3D printed water pipe fittings.

Typically this infrastructure within houses uses specific standard-sized fittings- 90, 45 and t shape angles that restrict the movement of the pipe. this project offers new possibilities for these existing components and adds a level of flexibility through the use of 3D printing technology. no longer bound by abilities and costs of the metal industry, alternative fittings can be created, with each ‘bypass’ piece adapted to match existing or new parts.

 

the project was created for the ‘design underground exhibition’ at benyamini gallery in tel aviv, curated by shlomit bauman.
