Helps keep the net pot upright.



This entirely optional 3D-printed part keeps the net pot from “rolling” on the round growing pipe. This may otherwise happen if the plant is tall and top-heavy.

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/pot-holder-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.
