Which problem are you trying to solve?
Ordinary flower pots are usually after use thrown away or kept for other flowers and create a mess and and creates
How are you going to solve the problem?
Producing flower pots that can be decomposed in nature. Flower pots consist of PLA material are biodegradable in nature
and they are obtained from corn starch so it is not harmful to the environment.
What is the impact of your project?
The pots that we plant in the earth become degradable in nature and serve as:1. pots, 2. compost. Additionally, the
number of ordinary pots that were thrown into the environment would be reduced.
How can the project be manufactured in the OpenLab?
OpenLab could produce such PLA flower pots on a 3D printer according to my designs or
we can make a mold according to
Describe your project in detail
I've designed flower pots in SketchUp. Flower pots are made from PLA material that is made from corn starch and is
degradable in nature. PLA matrial is most commonly used for 3D printing and unlike ABS, PLA is not toxic, biodegradable
in nature, it is soluble at a lower temperature, ... In a flowerpot you can plant flowers by placing earth and flowers
in the pot. After a while the pot serves as compost for the flower. Flowers or other plants that you plant are treated
according to the conditions required for survival (temperature, humidity ...) of such plant species. Production process:
Designing in SketchUp -> Formatting G-Code in Cura -> printing on a 3D Printer.
