Process + Procedure

To create this henna clock, I followed these steps:

  1. Created the basic line work for the planter in Rhinoceros 3D
  2. Imported the Rhinoceros 3D file into Fusion 360
  3. Extruded all the curves to create the solid planter on Fusion 360
  4. Combined all the different components of the planter into 1 body
  5. Exported the planter into an stl file
  6. Copied the stl file into an SD card, which I then used to import my project into the Zortrax 3D printer
  7. Scaled my project down by 60%
  8. Printed the planter
  9. Peeled the bottom part off the planter
  10. Sanded the planter to remove all the extra PLA
  11. Spray painted the inside of the planter gold
The two main problems I encountered were during the 3D printing of this planter. The Zortrax for some reason was printing with a base that would stay flat, and slightly curled up at both edges. Additionally, four out of five of the small towers did not even print. 

Also, the significant scaling down of this planter made it more functional as a tealight candle holder than a planter.
