#TechTeamTuesday 7/5
๐Ÿ‘‹ Good Afternoon #GregGang!
#GregTeam is back with a look at whatโ€™s coming next, and some posts that caught our eye this week!

๐ŸŽ‰ New features coming soon to Android & iOS!

1) The ability to customize your app notifications for plant care & Community.
2) A totally revamped and streamlined new user setup flow. When you share Greg with your plant pals, theyโ€™ll be able to add their plants in a flash ๐Ÿ“ธ!
3) The ability to set your plant's window orientation as "Skylight" thanks to @Darren's recommendation.

๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™‚๏ธ Oh, and since I mentioned sharing Greg, remember that using your referral link gets you 3 months of Super Greg and your pal 3 months of watering reminders for free! Your personal Greg referral link is[your username here].

๐Ÿ‘€ Some things that caught our eye this week:

๐Ÿƒ Donโ€™t miss out on @Homebyfaithโ€™s gorgeous, hand drawn, playing cards! Her deck of cards is currently 264% funded on Kickstarter! The next stretch goal unlock is at 300% so have you ordered a pack yet?

๐ŸŒฟ @ABCD led a very interesting discussion on 3D printing the best moss pole for his Golden Pothos. If youโ€™ve ever had questions about different methods or types, check out Peterโ€™s post!

๐Ÿช„ @ForFoxSake has been talking up his magic cloning paste for a week and finally Casey had time to demonstrate to us all how simple this magic is! Check out #ClubKeiki and hit the join button to follow along and see the results!

As always, use #GregFeedback to share any new ideas or bugs you come across with the team!

Best Answer
Miniature scale but this is the idea @ABCD gravity will do a lot to stabilize it using the grooves and locks to keep everything aligned
Thank you #gregteam ๐Ÿ’š
3) YES!! I have a skylight!

1) WOO HOO!! I smell a search feature coming up soon!

I've been reading about that magic paste. I'm going to have to have to look into this. Thanks for starting it @ForFoxSake - I saw a bunch of folks got it already, like @AwesomePlants ๐Ÿ˜
Excited about these new features!
Glad to have you guys back!! My favorite day #TechTeamTuesday ๐Ÿ˜Šโœจ

So happy with whatโ€™s coming!! Exciting ๐Ÿฅน๐ŸŒฟ I love Greg sm omg. The notification customizations makes me so so happy!! Canโ€™t wait for it!
@LatiTish84 you're welcome!
@Megan just wait ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
@kscape it's definitely nice to have some more control!
@sarahsalith search is coming ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ just not next ๐Ÿซฃ
Thank you so much #GregTeam โค๏ธ It feels like every week thereโ€™s another amazing update. We see the hard work you guys are putting in to this app and it is SUPER paying off!! Sending my referral links now! ๐Ÿ˜Š
@fabiana yayyy bring in all the people!
Love these updates and our in house scientists like @ABCD and @ForFoxSake โ€ฆintrigued by all of this and following!!
@lemrobs were lucky to have had them find us !
@ForFoxSake I need your help making the sections stackableโ€ฆ so far I have this connector (the light blue piece) but it doesnโ€™t seem stable this is hard with the half moon shape
I need something that clicks or screws into place
Couldn't you just print the bottom of the top piece to be a mm smaller so the top one slides into the bottom one @ABCD
@RJG ๐Ÿ˜ถ
But that uses a lot a filament if it slid down far enough for it to be stable enough for my liking
Maybe I could make a connector that fits into the circular holes
@ABCD ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”
This is requiring some brainpower
@ABCD don't you hate that
Honestly I do- but I think Iโ€™m onto something ๐Ÿ˜ˆ
@ABCD ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
Nope ๐Ÿ˜ž
Just gonna browse otherโ€™s people stacking designs ๐Ÿ‘€
@ABCD donโ€™t over complicate it. Iโ€™m thinking you need a small hook at the front to create a hinge and two triangles at the back of pole and a small piece that slides over the notches to lock them in place
@ForFoxSake ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
You could even make the bottom of the pole a groove that fits into the top like stacking Tupperware lids I can make a 3D model in a bit but think about the grooves to lock into position and a locking mechanism for both poles
@ForFoxSake but both of these donโ€™t seem too stable
Thatโ€™s great!
@ABCD it definitely will be. Hereโ€™s a better prototype
Whoo this is all exciting!! Thank you for constantly making this app better and better! ๐Ÿ˜
@ForFoxSake Ok I found it! ๐Ÿ˜‡
Thank you #GregTeam the updates keep getting better and better for Android ๐Ÿฅฐ
@ABCD can you make them open circles so you don't lose the holes?
@RJG But if the plant climbs into that spot you wonโ€™t be able to take it apart without damaging the roots ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
@ForFoxSake Holes or no holes? (Would save filament too ๐Ÿค”)
Awesome! Seems like the app gets better and better every day. I am very greatful to the Greg app and will never stop using it. I just need to add the other 100 plants or so that I have into the app finally. But itโ€™s still been helping me a lot to remember when I watered last and when to water next. So helpful. Without Greg I would be going thru all 200 or so of them with a water meter constantly and it would take forever
Excited to see!!!
@SirLiquorice were so glad to hear this!! Really motivates the team to keep going seeing how much y'all appreciate it!
@RJG it has improved tremendously. At first I had too many plants and it would crash and I almost couldnโ€™t use it. Now I havenโ€™t had that problem in a long long time. And I expect any app to have issues like that. Only maybe a couple issues lately. But itโ€™s so much better. You can tell everyone is really working hard to make it better and it shows. Iโ€™ve already referred a few friends and Iโ€™ve tried it for Android and IOS and itโ€™s great. No complaints. I need a Greg coffee mug now to show off and advertise for the app more. Lol
Woohoo! Thanks #GregTeam! ๐Ÿชด๐Ÿ˜
Ok my brothers being a bum and he doesnโ€™t know if he wants to print it heโ€™s too lazy so Iโ€™m just ordering the one you got from Amazon @RJG ๐Ÿ™
@ABCD I'm very happy with them!
@SirLiquorice did you fill out the form when you got your top contributor status?
@RJG I did, but I didnโ€™t notice the email until recently. I was made a top contributor back in January and just barely filled out the form just the other day.
@RJG Ok I got it! Does the 2 pack come with two 24โ€ sections or two 12โ€?
@SirLiquorice we'll get you a mug then. I think we have a slight production delay right now but should have more ready to go in August.
@RJG awesome thanks!
@ABCD I believe 2 24" I got the 4 pack and got 4 24s
@RJG ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ
@ABCD and thatโ€™s how it usually goes with 3D printing moss poles haha
@RJG mug me
@ForFoxSake have you gotten 5 best answers already? ๐Ÿ‘€
@RJG more like 20
@ForFoxSake well then @Kiersten will be able to easily get that process started for you when she gets back from Iceland ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ธ
You can pick me up a mug from Iceland too @Kiersten ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿ˜…
@ForFoxSake ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿฅธ
@ABCD no holes. But I have a better idea to remove without damaging roots
Iโ€™ll just make the model haha ๐Ÿ˜‚ too hard to draw a halfmoon pole at an angle to show the idea
@RJG Itโ€™s coming Thursday ๐Ÿ˜Ž
@ABCD @RJG removable back panel so that you can spy on roots or remove all back panels to remove roots from front part without having to blindly pull. Back panel is taller than pole so that the next piece can snap on and be secure or you can invert the design so the holes are on the flat part and you can just remove the round portion by holding onto a tab on the flat part or add tab to the cylinder
@ForFoxSake ๐Ÿคฏ You HAVE to print thisโ€ฆ you could also sell this on Etsy for $$$, the current bestselling half moon pole on there is kinda homemade looking
@ABCD I personally am a big fan of the heart holes @ForFoxSake
@RJG I agree
@ForFoxSake How thick are the walls?
@ABCD 1mm ~10 layers and I usually print with double walls PLA+ & 20% infill
@ForFoxSake How large are the heart holes?
@ABCD ~5mm
@ForFoxSake โ€ผ๏ธ I made mine 20
@FigNewton read this for referral info.
@LatiTish84 thank you!
