Complete the design by creating a circular patter of the solid and cut spirals and the the associated fillets. This model uses 16 total tube features...
This project give instructions for creating a 3D model of an artistic plant pot. Exact dimensions might be found in some of the pictures, but plan to experiment to get the look you like best. This design has tubes extending from the inside rim of the pot to the bottom to give a water/air path to help keep the roots of the plant moist but not drowned.
Step 1: Create a sketch
Using 3d CAD software, create a sketch for one half of the basic cross-sectional shape for the pot. My sketch is for a pot to be printed on a 3D printer that has build volume of 8" x 8" x 8". The wall thickness is 2 mm. Scaling down to 75% will allow this model to be printed on a Makerbot Replicator 2 3D printer.
