I have a 50mm downpipe. Do you think scaling down wood be possible and working?

doubt full, i would say.
the exit hose will also be a lot smaller and the little holes inside will also be very small.
maybe you could remix, but with less channels inside?
or just try it, it's not a very big print..

Can you please explain how this "Automatic diverting flow when barrel is full" is working ?
I just see / imagine that you have to turn it manually to stop.

Very simple: when the barrel is full, the water just flows back in the pipe, since it can not go anywhere else.
(Ofc. the maximum level inside the barrel should be a little higher then the opening in the diverter, otherwise this will not work.)

Ok, Thanks, Now I understand. It has to be on one level with the max. level in the barrel.

Really nice design !
Do you think scaling it up to fit an 80mm pipe would work ?

Depends, if the thickness of the pipe wall is the same, you will get a little play, which is okay.
Be sure to scale up (80/70) in all directions, since the horizontal drain is preferably also round.

Other option, just make a round converter (in openscad?).

Nice !

For what diameter of gutter is it expected?
I am looking for a gutter of 70 mm.

It should fit a 70 mm gutter.
