3D model description

A simple but awesome tensegrity planter, easy to print and assemble.

Print two bases without supports and assemble them with two threads like in this video:

Print the planter with supports (they should be easily removable) and snap it into one of the two bases.

The planter has no drainage hole, so there should be a layers of pebbles on the bottom in order to avoid killing the plant.

I used a cotton thread, i think that any thin thread will work, and fishing line would be even better than cotton

The YouTube video doesn't mention what type of thread to use? Is it thin fishing line or cotton thread?

I’ve tried with a small channel but due to the part size it had some issue with bed adhesion. So I decided to leave the threads outside, and if the thread is pretty thin (as it should be) you won’t have any issue.
Let me know and thanks for downloading!

Printing mine now, just wondering how the threads go sitting between the bottom support and the surface the item sits on? Would it have been better to have a small channel on the bottom for the threads to run through?
