I needed a wide-jet right-angle pipe for my aquarium, so I made it in OpenSCAD.

I made it in PLA, but actually I'm not sure it's perfectly safe for fishes and plants...


Change parameters to fit length, diameter and dimension of the wide-jet output (it affects flow speed, and turbolence).

I printed it with my ReprapPro Huxley, using 0.25mm layer height and 100% infill.

Just as an information, the one in the photo is working in my aquarium (temp. about 26°C) since about Jan 15 2013. Today (Apr 10 2013) is still in its place and it looks perfect.

i cant vouch for certain about toxins, but from the conversations in the past i have came across, the microbes just turn pla into food over time. so it will break down faster in the warm water, i did get the idea to try bio balls made out of printed pla. but then we are back to toxins

Natural Colored ABS, or Natural Colored PETG are best bets for avoiding leeching.
