This is a 3D Print I made after one of my female students asked me to print a flower. I first searched Thingiverse to see what was out there. I found a flower pot that I based my dimensions on after printing that. I redrew the pot as a circle instead of a polygon. I also decided to draw it is a Flower Pot with 3 holes at different depths for 3 stems. I then designed 2 different flowers that can go on the stems. You may have to use a drill to clean out the pot holes to get the stems in. You could also add more holes to the pot with a drill. Also, you can cut the stems with a saw to change the height of the flowers. I applied a little gorilla glue to the spots where they connect to another part.

I used Autodesk Inventor to create all of the parts. That is the software I teach my middle school students.

I printed mine on a first generation MakerBot Replicator 2 I have in my middle school classroom. It only prints PLA. I used the MakerBot software to scale these objects. What worked for me was to scale the Z axis (Height) of the flower pot to 80mm, the Z axis of the flower (Height) to 50.4mm, and the X axis (Length) of the Flower Stem to 177.8mm. All prints were printed with a raft and no support. See the attached pictures for print orientation.
