3D printed Grow Tent Accesories
I figured I would start a thread for some of my 3d prints and designs. I was 3d printing before I started growing and once I got the tent I found lots of new things to print.
A few things about 3d printing .
#1 its slow, really slow. So its not a means of large scale production more of a one off or small batch things . I was always told if you want to print more or faster buy more printers.
2. Its a time consuming hobby and can get a little pricey. I would suggest anyone wanting to buy a printer to do your research and dont cheap out. I made that mistake . you will learn lots from a cheap kit like how to constantly fix it . but in the end it may scare you off of printing.
Anyways I print from a Prusa i3 MK2s ive had it a few years they have much more upgraded machines since ive bought mine but its done a lot of work and still working great.
So these halos I didn’t design myself I found them on thingiverse but the 4” fits nicely in 1 gal fabric and the 6” is great in the 3 gal.
I print these at .3 layer height with PLA. Support only on build plate. You will have to re drill the holes.
These I did design myself. They are snap on pieces to add extra poles in your tent to stop the sides from sucking in. These are the updated ones with extra support and two sizes for dowels. 1/4” and 1/2” inch.
This is a 180mm pot riser works well on my 1gal and hoping it will work with my 3gal
So my friend Noko showed this design to me and I finally got around to printing it. I did both of the normal and wide mouth sizes and they turned out great. The hygrometers fit perfectly I would say a little sealant around them would be make it seal better.
Ok here we have it the party cup Halo I tested it and the hose that fits it Im pretty sure is 5/16ths thats the measurement but the hose I tried didnt have any numbers left on it
if you need the STL just shoot me a msg
I'm also into 3D printer, I used to have Ender 5 Pro's. I was wanting a printer with a bigger build plate, and preferably enclosed. I was used to the way Creality did things https://43dprint.org/best-3d-printers-under-2000/ the fourth one, so I figured I'd stick with them for the new printer. It prints just as well as my Ender 5 Pro's, with pla+. The enclosure makes printing with ASA a breeze. The glass build plate works well, and appears to be different than my other Creality branded "Updated" glass beds.
