Designed in Fusion 360
I wanted some planters I know I could sell in my local art galleries this coming holiday season, so I put in the leg work and designed my own.
Used my Tenlog Duel head printer to create one print of the top pieces. Just about any color combination should work.
Printed out the other pieces separately and glued them together, should be self explanatory. The mush bottom base part is a little goofy underneath when printed out. Cleaned it up with some minor sanding, besides who looks at the bottom of a planter?
The original design is rather large, don’t think I ever did print this at 100%
The Planters pictured are at 80% scaled down. I wouldn’t go too much further down without checking on the small eye centers in Cura, and seeing if they are going to print right for you. In fact I do suggest printing the eye centers at 1% or 2% smaller to make sure they will fit. Everything else came together perfectly.
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!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
