Garden Stake

3D model description

Well here is the main reason I bought a 3d printer! I designed this a while ago but finally got it to where i wanted it and figured I would share. If you watch - https://youtu.be/4-jF5OC8Q0c - it will explain better than I can type but basically it is to hold the plastic sheeting in the garden away from your plants so more water can get at them.

I included a few insert tabs and if you would want more just message me and I can make what you want and upload or you can do it yourself with the blank I included. When you emboss use a height of 1.45mm for the letters and print with the letters facing down.

There is a slot in the top (again video shows this better) to insert a little plastic tab that comes with most plants (at least here in the USA) so you can have all the info right there for you.

Just pop the indent tab into the holes on the side where it is wider - you can tell once it is printed - and to remove just squeeze the tabs together and push back through. You can do color changes if you want the letters to be different colors or if you have the ability to print more than one color, then you don't have to worry about the filament change at layer thing.

I did print this at .32 layer height and 25% infill and it works fine. I have had a few in the garden since last year that I printed in PLA and they have held up very well with no signs of wear. To use the slot for the plastic tab that comes with plants, print it as included with the top on the build plate and the point sticking up with supports everywhere due to the slots. Print the indent pieces with the letters down and NO SUPPORTS. If your printer will not print the bridges needed with no supports than you can include them but it can be a pain to remove them.

I guess that is it. Any question give a shout!
