Pot Impression 3D : le pot de fleurs avec réservoir à eau | Quark

Pot 3D printing: the flower pot in 3D printing with water tank, the solution to take care of your plants

Sometimes you don't think you have a green thumb. But in the end, we're mostlyheads up in the air. We forget to take time to water our flowers or the summer heat comes to support our troubles. The leaves eventually turn yellow, then fall... Your self-confidence decreases and you are convinced that you do not have a green thumb.

Caring for your plants

But with Quark we are here to support you in your gardening dream and we have the solution to accompany you!

The best way to take care of your flowers? It's simply a water reservoir pot 🚀

We offer you a flower pot that has a water reservoir and will allow you to create an ideal environment for your plants!

This flower pot is 3D printed from PETG (the material of plastic water bottles, also called: polyethylene terephthalate... There you go). It perfectly respects the well-being of your plants and it can be recycled as much as those famous plastic bottles.

We make it in our workshop, next to our Quark Board.

The idea: share open-source

The 3D printed flowerpot project comes directly from a site that we particularly like at Quark and that we recommend to you: Thingiverse.

More mystery, it's happening here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:903411

Pot de fleurs en impression 3D - Open-Source

What's great is that thanks to this technique, you won't forget to water your plants anymore. All you need to do is refill your water tank every two to three weeks. On the other hand, if you forget to refill your tank, then we can't do anything for you... Sorry...

Pot de fleurs en impression 3D et Open-Source

This project is led by the Parallelgoods team.

Do not hesitate to visit their site. They are really on top!

This flower pot with water reservoir is part of their 2015 office collection.

Here's what they say:

The Flower Pot with Water Reservoir was designed to be 3D printed, easy to install, use and clean, while allowing for customization through mixing of different colors for the pot and the tank.

3D printing: a futuristic technology

But why choose to use 3D printing to produce a flowerpot? Clearly there are a multitude of materials available to make flowerpots. You can find ceramic flowerpots, terracotta flowerpots, concrete flowerpots, or pots of flowers in wood. But 3D printing has the tremendous advantage of being able to produce on demand. We are a team of artisans another evening to produce locally. For this 3D printing meets this need perfectly. When you place an order on our website, we start a 3D print. There is therefore no stock, no costs to advance on the production side, and no waste. We were convinced by this solution. And today we want to share and promote 3D printing for the production of decorative objects for the home. So if you have an idea for an object, which would be particularly useful for your interior, we would be very happy to add it to our catalog.At first it would be a custom-made object in 3D printing Then this object will become a reference in our catalog. Do not hesitate to contact us, send us an email, or call us. We will provide a free estimate for this custom-made product.

The future of 3D printing

3D printing has a bright future ahead of it. For the moment it is clearly a niche technology. Even if we were able to observe with the confinement, the incredible capacity of makers and craftsmen, to produce small series locally and, very quickly. This was the case with protective masks and protective visors. Everything was done in 3D printing. We are following the movement, and we will be happy to participate in the emergence of local production tools, using the best of digital technologies.

Secondly, we love plants and we love having them around us at home. That's why we offer a flower pot with water tank. This is a great solution to prevent plants from dying due to lack of water. We have already tried this solution this summer. And the result is truly impressive! Pure happiness :)

Do not hesitate to contact us, we will be very happy to share, discuss and exchange on all these subjects.

See you soon

The Quark Team
