HDPE Arch Bases Set v2


Our HDPE Arch Bases are the perfect way to build larger arches and feature our innovative sliding pixel strip holders. The HDPE Arch Bases are designed for either 1.75″ or 2″ outer diameter HDPE tubing that is sold by McMaster Carr. The design utilizes 1/2″ EMT conduit for the horizontal bracing and 1/2″ PVC perpendicular stabilizing legs. This hybrid approach adds rigidity to the bases where you want it on the horizontal span and retains flexibility within the legs to reduce stresses on the bases. The bases are designed to allow pigtails to pass inside the base and exit along a channel on the bottom. An internal zip tie tunnel locks the pigtails in place so they stay contained in the channel. The pixel strip holder securely holds the strips without using any screws or zip ties and allows for a small bungee cord to supply tension. A front zip tie tunnel is then used to cinch the bungee in place and hold the tension. The top of the arch base also has a receptor that holds the pixel strip holder so that it remains as close as possible to the inside arc of the HDPE tubing. The arch base set includes only the 3D printed items, a pair of arch bases as well as a pair of HDPE pixel strip holders. More details on the arches below.

3D printing parts is a slow process and we have a whole print farm running 24/7 to fulfill orders and build stock of the more popular items. If you order a product that shows “made to order” we will move it directly to the print queue where it will be printed as soon as possible. While normal processing times for most orders with made to order items is less than a week, it can fluctuate. Very large orders can also experience longer than normal processing times as well because of the high number of hours it takes to produce lots of parts. If processing times are expected to be longer than two weeks before shipping, there will be a banner at the top of the website indicating the expected wait times. See the FAQ page for more info.

All of our 3D printed parts use PETG filament which provides good flexibility and resistance to UV exposure when used seasonally.
