HDPE Arch Bases Set (Older Version)


These are the original version of our 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 perpendicular stabilizing legs. The bases are designed to allow pigtails to pass inside of the base and snap into a tapered groove on the bottom. An internal zip tie tunnel locks the pigtails in place so they stay contained in the groove. The advantage to this design is that whether you are using strips or pixels, you can use preassembled pigtails with your lights and simply slide them through the bases. No more fumbling to solder your connections with a partially assembled arch laying across your work bench. Both sizes are available with 0 degree, 5 degree or 10 degree arch angles. The choice of angle is simply a personal preference on the desired shape of the arch. The 0 degree version has the arch exiting the base completely vertical and is for those who like a true half circle shape. The 5 and 10 degree versions simply lessen the arch exit angle. Keep in mind that the overall length of the arch segment and horizontal bracing are equally important in determining the shape and the base angle simply plays a role in achieving the desired shape. Each HDPE Arch Base Set contains a left and right arch base and associated friction fit pixel strip holder for each base. More details on the arches below. Arches bases will be black with white pixel strip holders. Includes 3D printed parts only.

Please also check out the HDPE Arch Bases v2 which are a slimmer profile that eliminates the integrated horizontal EMT support and allow for the horizontal bracing to be accomplished with conduit hangars bolted overtop of the HDPE in the slim bases. This reduces overall stress on the printed parts. https://inspirelightshows.com/product/hdpe-arch-bases-set-v2/

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 on backorder 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 backordered items is less than a week, it can fluctuate from time to time around 1-2 weeks. Very large orders can also experience longer than normal processing times as well. 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. Additionally very large orders could have longer delays due to the vast number of printer hours required for production of the parts. We will contact you and let you know the expected production time if it were to exceed the estimated timeline for very large orders. See the FAQ page for more info.

Since this is an older design for Arch Bases, we do not accept returns of this product.

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