Segment Summary
We're designing a 3D object that can hold our 5" Vase and the electronics to illuminate the bottom.

Interesting Design Features of the AquaVase_Base1. The bottom panel is 2MM thick and the shell is between 2-3mm
2. The stands for the aluminum square tubes are 2-3mm thick and are supported by the bottom panel & their connection to the lower vase ring
3. There are curved buildouts on either side of the lower vase ring that will h
