Introducing my first customizable object for 3D printing
This Customizable Watering Planter is a solution in order to put your lovely plants in your lovely places. Without to be worried about water spills or forgetting to water the plants. It is easy to use: just plant your favorite plant, add some water, and it is all.
This Customizable Watering Planter was designed to be 3D printed with a minimum requirements, but the most important issue is that It is customizable to cover your own space and necessities. It is composed of two parts: the reservoir and the pot. Both were designed with a regular polygon in mind and a customizable feature under a few parameters.
I have only one recommendation: the height should be greater than the radius.
Be free to skip the instructions if you have experience with the setup of 3D parameters, if not, I recommend you to read it.
I sliced the reservoir and pot with the same parameters.
I use Skeinforge and Slic3r, in both of them, the resulting prints have been good.
The other important 3D printing parameters are: the temperature was set to 220 °C with PLA in order to avoid delamination in layers, the vertical shells (perimeters) was set up to 2 and the horizontal shells (bottom and top solid layers) to 5.
I have ever used PLA for my 3D Printings, It is not the exception.
Any comment would be good received...
I designed the Customizable Watering Planter in OpenSCAD with some modules to make the reservoir and the pot.
