My hops plant has been growing really well and it was starting to outgrow the stake in its pot so I've decided to put up a lattice for it to climb. I did not find anything that I liked at the hardware store so decided to make my own. This is a very simple DIY lattice that can be 3D printed. You will still need to purchase the rods from a hardware store, it's just the mount pieces that are printed.

Here's the end result:

The assembly is quite straight forward, you just need to drill four holes for the corner pieces in the correct locations on the wall and mount it. The pieces for the horizontal rods are held in place by a small screw that go directly into the vertical rod.

You will need to print the following pieces:
  • 4x Piece 1 (2x per horizontal rod)
  • 2x Piece 2
  • 2x Piece 3

You can download all of the pieces from Thingiverse: Lattice mount pieces.
