Wearable Planter necklace. Carry a plant with you on an adventure.


Wearable Planter necklace. Carry a plant with you on an adventure. This planter is one from my wearable planter series, and is made using 3D printing. I still haven't printed this on a Makerbot, but it has printed well on other machines using FDM.

If you're printing in ABS, you may need to seal it, or smooth the surface with acetone, so it stays watertight.

After you've done that, just put it on a cord of your choice, add a plant, and go!

Needs supports to print it the way it is.

this looks awesome! i'm gonna try to print this with Replicator 2. What plant should I use? And I have to put some soil inside, right?

Try using a clipping from a succulent with some soil- we've got a bunch of tutorials on http://wearableplanter.com/howtoplantwearableplanter.com/howtoplant that you can check out for step by step instructions.

FDM and "Extruder 3D Printer" are the same thing. :-P

Not exactly - FDM is a trademark of Stratasys and therefore ColonelJam is likely to refer to a Stratsys printer. RepRap uses the term FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication) instead.

Renosis - in reply to

They are exactly the same technology, just a different name. And the hobby 3d printers have reached the quality of the Stratasys printers now. So really the differences are minimal. Except Stratasys is Propretary (so, actually this is a large difference). And if you ask me, I think we are reaching a limitation on FDM. Our "Theoretical" resolution far outreaches what is possible with FDM right now.

just wonderful!!!-may you add a photo when printed these with a Makerbot/Sumpod/Ultimaker or similar? Would be great to see how it looks like when its extruded...

FDM is way better but should be possible to make a nice one with an Extruder 3D Printer :)

FDM is an Extruder 3D Printer. It stands for Fuse Deposition Modelling and is the technology of RepRap, MakerBot, MakerGear, Ultimaker and Dimension UPrint printers.
