Final Project – Adjustable Potted Plant Holder

At my apartment I have a liter of plants, some without stands and some without so where there’s a need there’s creation. I wanted to make an adjustable holder that could hold almost any pot. My starting design was involved joints which were eventually simplified to print easier and make the design more rigid.

A hook and loop design is used for the side supports, the previous design used a press fit joint. After test prints the press cap was too rigid while the shaft it lived on was too skinny. To improve the press fit design I would go with a two prop design with an over hanging lip to provide resistance against rip out.

Ultimately I believe the simplicity of the hook and loop design will provide enough rigidity to staticky hold my plants. Looking forward to seeing the final prints!
