Hello Pierre,
Good job creating the Y Pipe 3D file. I printed it and tried it. It was perfect.
But there was some leaks through the layers.
I tried to modify the CAD data on Onshape,but it was not possible(it was read only).
I would like to increase the inner wall thickness of the part by 2mm. That will solve the leak issue.
Is there anyway you can help me to increase the inner-wall thickness? :)
Have a great day!

Hi,

I believe you can duplicate a document on onshape.

About the leak, did you dip the part into paraffin wax ? (It helped me getting rid of the leak for low pressure)

I tried to duplicate in Onshape. But, it is showing a different part after duplicating(Screenshot attached). Have you uploaded the CAD data in GrabCad?
I printed in Polypropylene and Carbon charged Nylon. Also, my use case is for long-term use. In that case, Paraffin solution is not feasible for me.
I feel that, if i can increase a bit more wall thickness, it will be leak proof.

did you print those connectors? ;)

before printing, I usually check the ratio price/strength/lifespan and for the connectors, it's not good, so no, I bought them.:)
