I designed this planter in 3 parts:
- The Outer Shell - This is will collect the water drained from the inner shell that can then be discarded / reused later.
- Inner Shell - This is where the dirt and plant should be planted.
- Ring - This ring goes around the inner shell and supports it on the outer shell.
I made it in 3 parts to allow printing without the use of supports. If I made it only 2 parts (inner and outer shell) a massive amount of supports would be required.
NOTE: I have not yet printed this design. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
The outer shell should be printed with a fair number of walls 3-5 since it will need to be watertight. The other two parts, the inner shell, and ring, do not need to be water tight and can be printed with 2 shells.
