For almost two years, our clients have trusted us to turn their vision into reality. Our recent client GiftGreen, which offers easy-to-maintain plants and pots, approached us with the existing problems of regular (terracotta and plastic) pots. Considering today’s busy lifestyle, regular pots require a lot of time and attention as they are prone to fungal infection and need continuous supply of water to the plant.
With the help of our 3D printing technology, we were able to eliminate the existing problems and provide a feasible way to grow a plant at home or office.
3D design solution
Working on a more personal level with our client, we captured as much as information in conversations. This then became the basis of our design. Creating a hassle-free planter was our core objective.
Our basic design involved two separate pieces; the smaller piece (basket) that holds the plant fits perfectly into the bigger piece (reservoir) that acts as a water tank. The idea behind this was mainly to fulfill the “self-watering” needs.
Pleasant planting method
Unlike conventional pots, 3D printed self-sustaining planters have the following benefits.
Our extensive experience in 3D printing product design allowed us to successfully make a detailed design to minimize user maintenance. Unfortunately, till date, planting methods have not progressed much beyond the regular pots. However, printOmake continues to move on very well with great enthusiasm and dedication to provide innovative ways to make plant keeping ridiculously easy.
