    3D printer users

    I don't have a 3D printer and I am hoping to find someone that does. And furthermore hoping some one will be willing to make a few orchid pots for me. I am looking for small pots in the 2x2x2 inch range. Willing to trade plants in exchange. I figured it worth a shot.

    I have a 3D printer that has a base of 7in x 7in. If you could send me the .stl file of the pot, I'm sure we could work out something. (I can only print in PLA, though)

    Hey man, I have some 2 1/4" pots you can have... if you're fine with used. If you only want new, I'd have to take a look and see if I have any hiding, I'm not really using them anymore so I've not bought any new ones for a while. How many are you looking for?

    Had to educate myself because at first I had no idea what you were talking about...at all! Lol
    A file like this?

    Thanks for the offer Andrew! Very generous. I have some normal pots, but I was looking for some more decorative

    PLA is water soluble, isn't it?

    Edit: Nevermind it is not

    I don't have a 3D printer, but Shapeways does 3D printing in at least one ceramic. Not sure how it would hold up outside though.

    I never thought to use a 3D printer to make plant pots. I somehow suspect that this could be the start of a new trend among wealthy plant cultivaters.
