I had to resubmit my planter thing because I wasn’t able to make the planter I had said I’d make due to just finding it really hard. I had been really struggling to do this thing because I didn’t really know how to prototype it. I tried doing it with wood which worked the best but when I tried it with clay that just completely failed. I had the option to do a new project but I thought that would be too much.
I needed to find a way to do it, so I just used paper to prototype it and it worked. Then my dad had a good idea to get it laser cut by some people he knew so I went onto illustrator and made a file for them to cut. The pieces arrived and I checked if they fit together and they did. I then used an MDF sealant and lined them with plastic. This is because MDF can go mouldy. I then got a tube which I drilled holes into, put it through the assembled boxes and then put the soil and seeds in.
Above are picture of the finished thing, I’m happy with how it has turned out. I think that there are revisions I could make to future models but for now I think this one demonstrates the concept pretty well and it’s definitely the best rendition so far.
I found getting to this ending point very stressful but at least it’s done now.
