Picture of 3D Printable Hydroponics Tower Support Structure
This is an idea I have been working on for a while. It began as a vertical Gardening experiment so I could learn about hydroponics and now I just want to get it made and start growing. I wanted to make a Hydroponic Tower that uses waterfall effect to disperse water to plants held in the sides of the tower. I wanted to use as much recycled components as I could and try build the support structure from 3D printed parts. Unfortunately I do not own a 3D Printer at the moment but I decided to design the parts I would need anyway. Feel free to download the files or modify them in tinkercad.

Step 1: Tower Feet

The support structure is made from interconnecting poles that slide into each other. The feet are small rounded supports for uneven surfaces.

I used Tinkercad, https://tinkercad.com/, free browser cad software. very easy to use.

This would also work for as a conical fermenter stand for brewing beer
What a cool idea!
