The Protopiper is a gun-shaped device that allows to create full-scale three-dimensional objects using adhesive tape. The goal of the device is to give you an idea of how much volume an object will occupy.

Protopiper is a computer aided, hand-held fabrication device that allows users to sketch room-sized objects at actual scale. The key idea behind protopiper is that it forms adhesive tape into tubes as its main building material, rather than extruded plastic or photopolymer lines. Since the resulting tubes are hollow they offer excellent strength-to-weight ratio, thus scale well to large structures.
