but you can't do much about it.
So in this instructables, I am going to show you how to beautify your light post along with your garden.
Then, it is up to you to display your favorite hanging plant, bird feeder or patio accent.
Step 1: Step 1- Locate the Rod on Your Light Post
in this instructable, i am measuring the rod with 0.75" diameter.
pretty easy so far!
Step 2: Step 2- the Hard Part
Therefore, I am nice enough to do it for you!
I uploaded a set of 3D files format (stl, iges, x_t) for your convenience. I even put in the native solidworks file in here. so you can change the design anyway you want (if you have solidworks)
No solidworks? No problem. there free alternatives (123D or SketchUp) will get you started. and learn there software here
since you have all the files you have, it will be a piece of cake!!!!
Step 3: Step 3- 3D Printing
or company like Shapeways or Ponoko
NOTE: the wall thickness of the hanger is about 0.125". Don't make it too thin!!!! so far my plants survive 2 thunderstorms. so the thickness I have there is about right.my hanging plants is around 15lbs
Step 4: Step 4 - Enjoy
just Insert the part into the rod.
Go get a nice hangering blasket!
have fun and enjoy the beautiful summer
