What is exhibited here is a flower vase and a dip pen made using capillary phenomenon. This flower vase made with the 3D printer has a microstructure, and it absorbs the liquid if its structure contacts the liquid. This liquid transport is due to the capillary phenomenon occurring within its structure. These structures enable the transport of water by capillary phenomenon in the structure.
Conventional flower vase arranges plants from above and waters the plants in the same way. In addition, the dip pen adapts the capillary phenomenon structure to the pen tip and create it using only 3D printers.
