3D printers could be of great help to growers. 3D printers could be of great help to growers.


You are setting up your grow room, happily connecting plastic joints to your piping, when “SNAP!” – something cracks. The last thing you want to do is waste time running to your local hydroponic or hardware store. Now there is a better option.

Three-dimensional printers are quickly changing the way we think about manufacturing. Now priced at just over $2000, the latest generation of units, like the popular and easily purchased Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer, can be a great investment for medium- to professional-size grow operations, offering 24/7 access to repair parts. And as prices continue to drop, it won’t be long before average home growers can design and fabricate custom parts for their individual hydroponic gardens using affordable 3D printers.

Break a pipe? Print a new one. Crack an elbow joint for your watering system? Don’t let that sucker flood your hydroponic garden when you can instantly create a brand new joint with the push of a button on your affordable 3D printer. The applications are nearly endless, and we cannot wait to see what the future of 3D printing will bring to hydroponic growers and the world.
