    I have drawn up downpipe bracket to be 3D printed in 4mm scale hopefully by Modelu, the one shown is for a 3 inch pipe I will also do the 4 inch round type and also square section types. The idea is you slide them on to rod or square section brass.

    Bracket 3.jpg Bracket 1.jpg IMAG1854.jpg IMAG1855.jpg No problem is scaling them up to 7mm scale it should be possible to make them finer too as it's only a min 0.2mm wall thickness you can print to.

    Attached are screen shots of the square version and photos these are modelled on.

    I need to draw up the 7mm ones as I will try and get a thinner wall thickness, but hopefully may do this in the next few weeks.

    Alan Butler has now added these downpipe brackets to the Modelu range, these are available in 4mm and 7mm scales in round and square versions in and all scales both types can be produced in 3 inch and 4 inch versions.
