## Introduction: Good Night "Sheep" Planter

Do you want to make a unique planter by yourself? Want to challenge yourself creating 3D design for your indoor planter pot? Because I am a Huge Fan of Sheep, I created the design of sheep. Here I show you how to do it with the help of Tinkercad software. Let's get started!

To get the STL file, click Cults3d

## Supplies

Dremel 3D Printer

Dremel Digilab Slicer

PLA Filament (Red, Blue, White, Light Grey, and Yellow)

Hot Glue

Little Rocks and Soils

Plants and Flowers

## Step 1: The Crescent

Grab a torus. Scale it into the length of 127.62 mm, the width of 57.90 mm, and the height of 150.81 mm. Grab a cylinder and make it a hole. Make the length of 128.72 mm, the width of 231.58 mm, and the height of 152.11 mm. Group them together.

## Step 2: The Crescent's Face

Grab a half sphere for the eyes. Scale it into the length of

11.58 mm, the width of 11.58 mm, and the height of 5.79 mm. Duplicate it into 2. For the nose, grab a sphere. Make it the diameter of 4.63 mm. Grab a mustache from the characters tab. It is optional. Scale it into the length of 3.50 mm, the width of 19.43 mm, and the height of 4.63 mm. Grab a sphere for the mouth. Scale it into the length of 6.68 mm, the width of 13.89 mm, and the height of 5.09 mm. Duplicate it and rescale it (because the bottom lip is smaller than the upper lip) into the width of 13.89 mm, the length of 8.73 mm, and the height of 5.55 mm. Arrange them all proportionally as in the picture.

## Step 3: The Crescent's Hat - 1

Grab a paraboloid. Scale it into the width of 62.53 mm, the length of 61.37 mm, and the height of 53.26 mm. Drag a sphere. Scale it into the width of 37.05 mm, the length of 68.85 mm, and the height of 17.37 mm. Rotate it 22.5 degrees. See the picture. Drag another sphere. Make the diameter of 23.16 mm. Group them altogether.

## Step 4: The Crescent's Hat – 2

Put the hat on the crescent body. Duplicate the crescent body and make it a hole. Group them together.

## Step 5: The Sheep

There are some steps to make the Sheep. The result will be like this.

To create the head, drag and drop sphere into the workplane. For the size, see the picture. Rotate 15 degrees as shown in the picture.

## Step 7: The Ears

For the ears, use sphere and scale it as shown in the picture. Put it in the upper side of Sheep's head. Rotate 45 degrees as shown in the picture. Duplicate it into 2.

## Step 8: The Face

To make a face, you need eyes and mouth. For the eyes, use a sphere and duplicate it. To make a mouth, use round roof and duplicate it for holing. For the scale, see the picture.

## Step 9: The Body

For the main part of the body, use a cylinder and grab another cylinder for the holes. Group them together. Make the details for the Sheep's wool. I use a sphere for the wool. Copy and paste it as many as you want. Play around with the scale and the position. The final result should be in the picture. It is very difficult to explain it in words, so I embedded my design in Tinkercad. Therefore, you can see the exact measurement. Lastly, do not forget to add the Sheep's tail by using a sphere.

## Step 10: The Front Legs

For 1 front leg, use 2 spheres and make them the shape of ellipses. For the scaling, see the picture. Do not forget to rotate it and group both of them together. Attach the body and duplicate it to create 2 front legs.

## Step 11: The Back Legs

For 1 back leg, you need 3 spheres, too and make it a shape of ellipses. For the scaling, see the picture. Do not forget to rotate it and group both of them together. Attach the body and duplicate it to create 2 back legs.

## Step 12: The Blue Cloud

Grab a sphere. Scale it into the length of 77.92 mm, the width of 77.63 mm, and the height of 40.18 mm. Grab a cylinder and make the diameter into 87 mm and the height of 81.93 mm. To make the details, use spheres as accessories for the cloud. The size is up to you. Play around with it. Copy 1 layer of the cloud twice, so you have 3 layers of the cloud. Group them altogether. See the picture as final result.

## Step 13: The Grey Cloud

Grab a sphere and scale it into the length of 770.2 mm, the width of 77.22 mm, and the height of 35.31 mm. Grab another sphere and scale it into the length of 81.23 mm, the width of 81.44 mm, and the height of 41.38 mm. Make it a hole and group the spheres altogether. To make the details, use spheres as accessories for the cloud. The size is up to you. Play around with it. Group them altogether. See the picture as final result.

## Step 14: The Base

Grab a box. Scale it into the width of 212 mm, the length of 190 mm, and the height of 30 mm. Grab another box and scale it into the height of 17 mm, the width of 170 mm, and length of 192 mm. Make it a hole and group them together.

## Step 15: Printing

Before printing, save and export the selected object to .stl file and print it. Open the Dremel Digilab 3D Slicer. Make sure the object is on the base. Choose the print setup.

I choose "High Speed", Infill: Gradual, Tick the "Generate Support". Tick the build plate adhesion, click prepare and send to printer.

## Step 16: Assemble

Assemble all parts that we already printed before by gluing with hot glue.

## Step 17: Final Design Pot

Here is the final design pot.

## Step 18: Planting

To make it prettier, you need to prepare the planting. Add some soil and little rock to the pot. Plant it with some flowers and plants.

## Step 19: Final Planter Pot

Here is the final planter pot. You can place this in the house. Enjoy!
