Summary

Plantygon is a modular geometric stacking planter. Designed to accommodate my growing collection of succulents, it is based on the truncated octohedron which can tesselate in 3D space. This allows each planter to stack together in any combination that you’d like!

Each planter has a sloped inner drain leading to holes which drain into the neighboring planters. A version without drainage holes is also available for indoor use.

Printed planters available on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/PrintFutura

Print more to build your garden as your succulents propagate, or collect many varieties of tiny plants!

Designed in Autodesk Fusion 360 on macbook, and printed on Ultimaker 2+ at 0.15 mm layer height.

Supports optional depending on your printer’s bridging ability, I print in Cura with supports set to ‘Touching Buildplate’.

You doing so good !!

Quick recommendation make one with the drain holes that come out only one or 2 sides

these look very nice i will definetly print them but how big are these

They are 100mm^3. I've had luck with scaling them and still having the interlock work between 75%-125%

Your plants are going to outgrow their plantygons quickly, which you might be able to remedy with a more hollow-ish plantygon to stack below and above.

The hollow-ish is a nice idea :)

They would likely grow sideways after hitting a wall/ceiling and exit the plantygon towards the sunlight.

Or just scale them up and print bigger ones!
