For my project, I am designing a toilet paper roll dispenser. The initial prototype is a simple face. Perhaps one iteration will be of BMO as suggested by a class mate.
For the final design, I plan to use 3D printing to accomplish much more complicated images. The images will primarily be silhouette focused. The negative space of the image will be cut out from the face plate, allowing one to see how much toilet paper is remaining and creating an interactive aesthetic. The design will also allow different face plates to be swapped. The time saved by utilizing 3D printing will allow me to experiment with multiple aesthetics and ideas. As an added touch, the printing material used will be glow-in-the-dark PLA.
