Inspired by the architectural detail in the rosette window at Notre Dame Cathedral. This planter was modeled in SelfCAD for the MyMiniFactory / SelfCAD design competition.
I had intended to keep the form of the planter as simple and clean as possible with just making a square container, while keeping the image of the rosette window as the main focal point.
I had created this model in SelfCAD by using the "Image to 3D" tool for creating the sides of the planter, which were a photographed zoomed in of the rosette window at the Notre Dame Cathedral. I had adjusted the parameters and tolerance when I had imported the image to get the best result for the textured surface being the rosette window on the surface of the planter.
After I had the side created I had copied the side 3 times and rotated to make a square. After merging the sides I had created a base for the planter, then merged everything together and used the "Magic Fix" so that the planter was ready to be 3D printed!
This modular planter can be a great addition to your home or workplace! Just add a succulent or other vegetation.
This model does not require support material!
