Just to give people an idea of what other configurations you can make with PVC pipes and the connector system, the original design was supposed to look something like this...
We don't have the 3D files for these connecting joints, but you can just take the STL file of the single cube and import it into your favorite 3D design software and make them there, or you can open up the SketchUp file we provided, both of which can be found here in our Thingiverse entry.
Again, this is just the frame system, the automation and brains are in the works!
Quick tip: If you make any of these, note the gap between the PVC pipes, you can easily fit in white art board you find at a stationary shop to help reflect light back inward toward your plants. You can also adhere reflective tape to the inward side of the board as well.
