MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
I wanted to make my own Bulbasaur planter after spying the original one on Reddit and finding that it wasn't on here (which has since been rectified http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:383659).
It turns out that this model is quite tiny. The main cavity for the plant is only 18mm across. Try printing at a scale of 2.5 to 2.8 to accommodate most mini store bought plants.
I will be modifying the hole for the plant to make it a little deeper and better able to hold the roots.
My print consisted of a 2.5 scale with 3 walls and 10% infill. It weighed 135 grams (ABS) and took 14 hours on a Replicator 1.
The plant is a Pachyveria "Little Jewel" sold in a small cup at Wal-mart.
Another Gentleman on Reddit (u/GrandeSwag) found a much better plant for the build than I used. An Astrophytum Myriostigma cactus actually looks like Bulbasaur's bulb instead of IvySaur's plant. http://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/2b7q3f/3d_printed_bulbasaur_planter/
