Drip System: Basic Parts

To build a basic 3Dponics vertical drip system with four bottles, you need only two basic parts: the conduit (x1) and the drip nozzle (x4).

Conduit (Siphon)

3Dponics conduit

Allows any basic aquarium pump (air bubbler) to act as a water pump, cutting your energy consumption and energy bills drastically.

Conduit (with Hole)

3Dponics conduit with hole

Sucks up water while allowing air to escape through the hole in order to stir up any nutrients that have settled at the bottom of the reservoir.

Venturi

3Dponics Venturi - Conduit Upgrade

An improved version of the original conduit that takes the principles of fluid dynamics and applies them to hydroponics, allowing water to flow more efficiently to the top of your 3Dponics system. The shorter pipe acts as the air intake (attaching to the air bubbler via rubber tubing); the longer pipe acts as the outlet (transporting water to the top of the system). For optimal performance, the Venturi should be placed vertically inside the reservoir, immersed in the nutrient solution.

Bonus: The Venturi is smaller than the Conduit and therefore takes less time and material to print. If you have a dual outlet pump (e.g. HagenMarina 200), you can power two or more 3Dponics systems with one air pump.

    Hi Zoe/3D Ponics,

    Good morning, I have read the descriptions of the 3 different types of Conduits & I am also aware that the Venturi (shortest printing time) is the newest Conduit type.

    I am a noob to Hydroponics.

    *My question: are there any hard data to support the Venturi is “An improved version of the original conduit?”

    p/s: I have sliced all 3 different types of Conduits with CURA & found out that the Venturi’s printing time is ~19 mins vs 25mins for the 2 other Conduit types ( with all CURA settings maintained the same )

    # I have printed the DRIP NOZZLE (3/8 INCH, 3 HOLES) & very much looking forward to print all the other items and then move on to assemble the 3D Ponics Drip system.

    Thank you
