Description

Meet your new desk buddy! 

This fidget desk plant is the perfect way to bring the springtime joy indoors and right to you. Place the stems into the holes in any arrangement you like. Each of the leaves and petals are articulated for additional movement, and the vine includes a print-in-place chain. Whether you're pausing for a break or mulling over a problem, this fidget-friendly design not only boosts productivity but also adds a touch of fun to your workspace.

I am really proud of this model at this point in my 3D modeling journey but I also already have so many ideas for future improvements and variations. If you have ideas, please let me know in a comment! And if you print this design, please consider sharing your photos here. I'd love to see how they come out!

 

Happy Spring!

It's so good!! I used your recommended settings. The leaves were a little close together but I love the finished piece.

Beautiful! was this modeled off of a hoya? you did a great job with the wax flowers if that is what you were going for. Can I ask what filament you used? the green is one of my favorite that i've seen. I also like the old ivory look of the wax flowers.

Hi! Thanks so much for the comment. To strengthen the joints to your liking, have you tried adjusting wall number? Love any feedback if you try. Thanks! :)

It is not about the wall thickness but they are designed thinly. They do hold if you don't touch them, but not really for fidgeting.
