Introduction: 3D Printed Flower Pot

in this tutorial i made a flower pot from 3d printed model of my scanned head , any other shapes will work too

Step 1: Prepare the Model

in this step i used TinkerdCAD website because you can edit your STL file easly.

1. import your pre-scanned model or chose any shape from tinkercad menu that suitable for being flower pot.

2. use shapes such as :

  1. Cone ; with height = 1/2 base diameter
  2. Cylinder
  3. Icosahedron

to print without internal supports


3. use these shapes as a Hole and not Solid

4. Group all shapes together

5. make a small holes at the buttom for water to get out

6. make a Base for the pot (see the attached video)

7. export the files as start printing :)

Step 2: Planting

now the fun begin , get ready to go outdoor

  1. get any small plant from your garden or buy one
  2. get some soil
  3. stones or anything for decoration
  4. water

Step 3: Downloading the Tutorial's STL Files

you can download the STL files from thingivers website

I didnt make it but it looks cool. Was it hard to design?

not really hard , i scanned my self using SENSE 3D scanner you can use any other available and simple ways ( such as 3D scanning App on your mobile phone )
and the other steps took only few minutes as you see in the video
