3D printers are becoming more and more common, but after the initial novelty wears off – if you aren’t a student or designer – you might run out of things to print. Inhabitat favorite Vivien Muller is launching a collection of free designs that individuals can use to print items, with the goal of reducing waste and energy consumption. The first design in the collection is a pot called the Mangrover that can support plants without soil for a modern, creative design that anyone can print right at home.
