Connectable Pipes

3D printed connectable pipes could be very helpful on future space missions. These pipes could be used on virtually any planet humans venture to, specifically Mars. Astronauts could use connectable pipes to connect water and other liquid sources with necessary equipment. The advantage of 3D printable connectable pipes is that they would allow NASA and other space agencies to build and assemble the pipes for equipment on the planet, saving space on the spaceship. Additionally, broken pipes could be made and repaired without ruining a complete mission and unplanned experiments needing pipes could be accomplished. A huge advantage to 3D printing pipes is that astronauts could use waste or many any other materials to create these pipes.
