Mosaic Manufacturing shared on YouTube:
Fuze is a self-watering wall hanging planter. Fuze was designed in OnShape, sliced in Simplify3D, processed in Mosaic Chroma software, and printed on a Type A Machines Series 1 Pro with a Palette.
Fuze has a slightly porous barrier between the area that contains the water and the main area that houses the plant. Its geometry and structure were designed to be printed with no supports or rafts. Fuze can be printed as a solid or with a translucent window to allow its owner to quickly check the water level.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
