Big Money Project. This is a pineapple self-watering planter remixed with FreeCAD. It was taken from an original pineapple planter created by DasMia (Cults3D Link) and remixed into a self-watering planter. The top piece has a hole in the bottom for 100% cotton to be thread through to carry water from the bottom water void. This enables the water to take advantage of the capillary effect and self-water your plant.

Issues to be resolved[edit | edit source]

The following problems are problems that I found in this version that I will be fixing on later versions:

  • The bottom is not thick enough to hold water. A few extra layers will be added to solve this issue.
  • The two pieces don't fit together nicely. Either a chamfer on the connection point or a redesign of the connection point will be considered.

Note: If you have ideas I'd love to hear them! This is such a cute design so I'd love to perfect it!
