Are the Parts Compatible?

PVC parts can seem like they are compatible when you're at the store buying them but then you realize that the fittings don't quite work.. that you maybe bought CPVC instead PVC?

When you get your parts list from Crafty, you can be sure all the snapped parts are compatible!

Easy to Work With!

PVC is a great material to work with because it's easy to cut and glue! You can easily cut it with a basic hand saw. Gluing is also very easy and once it glues, it hold super strong!

Not a Plumber? No Problem

It's intimidating to see all these parts and not know what you need.

You can always order or play with someone else's design to get started. Once you get to know the parts a bit more, you'll start to wrap your head around all the parts very quickly!

All the PVC Parts You Need!

We have a huge selection of reducers / expanders / adapters in different sizes so you can accomplish your design. Our parts go all the way from 1/2" to 4"! You can also combine steel and brass parts with PVC since they use the same NPT threading.

We Know What Fits Into What

We know the size & type of each connection of each PVC part
So we show you only compatible parts when you're designing

Why PVC?

PVC was designed primarily for plumbing but many people realized it was a cheap / easy to use material for making lots of things! People have made table, chairs, carts and geodesic domes! The other very cool thing is that the connections for PVC are also compatible with steel as well so you can combine the parts.

PVC parts also tend to be very affordable so you can buy extra parts / play with them without feeling like you're going to waste a lot of money. PVC tubes are hollow inside so they aren't great for any weight bearing designs unless the length of the tube is very short and supported with a strong structure design.

No! It all works on the browser. It works on your phone as well as your computer!

Is it free?
Yes the app is 100% free.

Can I save my design?
Yes! You can save your design in your account.

Can I share my design?
Yes! You'll have a unique URL for every design you save which you can send to anyone! They can then see or clone the design. They cannot edit your design. You can also delete it whenever you'd like.

What materials do you support?
Crafty currently have 700 parts across
aluminum 8020, steel, wood and PVC! Let us know if we're missing a part

Where did the idea for this app come from?
I spent a year building an off grid farm and knew nothing about construction / plumbing / electrical work…
I saw that most people had to go the hardware store multiple times and many times they weren’t able to finish their work that day because the vendor didn’t have the part. So I thought if you can design your project beforehand, it will allow us to check for compatibility while you’re designing and then be able to send you all the parts! Much easier!

Can I connect PVC to wood, t-slot / aluminum 8020?
Yes. There are transition parts that allow you to connect PVC to wood or wood to aluminum 8020. If there is interest, we will start adding parts like motors and electrical components as well.

The idea for Crafty is to be a place where you can design your entire project with all of its components so when you want to get to building, all you need to do is order!

Do you have everything in stock?
No, not everything. We currently have about half of the parts and our goal is to little by little add more.
For the parts we don't have, we will give you a link for the provider that you can buy it from. Hopefully as the app gets more traction, we will start to carry more and more items so we can ship you everything in one set.

How do you deal with long and heavy parts (like 2x4s)?
When you have parts longer than 36" or of a certain kind (like lumber beyond a certain WxH), we just give you the dimension / exact length for you to go buy that at your local store. It doesn't make much sense to ship a 2x4 :)

Are you going to add more parts?
Yes. This current set of parts that you see on the app is our initial set. We just finished this version in late April 2023 so we’re listening to the feedback we get and will evolve the app to be the best that it can be for all of you!

Why not just use CAD?
You can! If you have all the parts downloaded already and are an expert in CAD software. Also, I would hope that your CAD software gives you a clean output of all the parts / their exact measurements.
What CAD software won't do is allow you to share the design online and allow others to see your design and specs.
