are you sure it doesent need supports, wont the stairs need support?

Positive -- if you view the model you will see there is an angled edge under it. I purposely designed it to NOT require supports.

Love all of these pot designs, and my wife is demanding that I make a bunch of them (my printer is going to be busy!). However, I have one question: I've struggled heavily in the past with making water-tight prints. Any advice for printing these so water doesn't seep out through the sides or the bottom?

Print one and give it a try. I still have this one on my desk with the same plant now for over a year. Make sure you print enough layers in the walls -- I usually do 1.2mm (3 layers per wall) that is 3 layer inside and 3 outside of the pot before the 20% infill. Also, they are not water vases -- it is actually good if they breath a bit for the soil. Also, all my designs have water release holes for over flow and also allow the soil to breath.

Thank you,this looks great will try it now.Just got my printer so this will actually be my first real print

Love this file! I had a go at printing it last night on a fast print (9hours) as opposed to high quality (38) and theres some minor inconsistencies, but nothing a bit of sanding, primer and paint wont sort out!

Thank you so much for sharing this, I love it!

I am going to print this as is and as it is one the better planter designs I have seen on here, but have you considered creating a version with a lower stair with a more uniform depth? My architectural training and mild OCD makes me ask this!

I have updated the STL. Honestly it bothered me a bit as well. Have a look at the new file.

Awesome! Are you willing to release the file for remixes as well?

Feel free to remix off the STL file listed. Thanks.

a beautiful design, thanks for your sharing

Thank you! If you make one, please share a photo of your make.
