This part is obsolete. The cube holder cubeholder-1 with label solves the problem better.

Visual separator for germinating seeds.



This is an entirely optional part. We just noticed that when germinating different types of seeds, perhaps starting at different times, in the same germination tray, it can be difficult to keep them separate and remember which is which.

So we created this germination fence, which just sits in the tray as a visual separator between the different batches of germinating seeds.

Bill of materials

  • Food-safe 3D printing filament

Required tools

  • 3D Printer

  • PC running OpenSCAD.

  • PC running a slicing program suitable for your 3D printer, such as Slic3r.


  • Download the following OpenSCAD models:

  • Alternatively, if you are familiar with git and have it installed, clone the entire Project Springtime website from here and look for the .scad files in content/parts/germination-fence-1/cad.

  • In OpenSCAD, open each .scad file at a time and select "Design/Render (F6)".

  • In OpenSCAD, export each file as STL.

  • In your slicer, place the previously exported STL file. We suggest you slice and then print one file at a time.

  • In your slicer, you can probably use default parameters for your printer. (You know your printer better than we do.)

  • In your slicer, export the G-Code and print the G-Code with your 3D printer.
