Design Preview – Minimalist/Contemporary Tabletop Fountain

(AI-generated imagery)


The design I decided to go with is a Minimalist/Contemporary miniature tabletop water fountain. I was mainly inspired by minimalist architecture and interior design aesthetics when creating this design. The aesthetic I was going for is characterized by minimalism, a light color palette, geometric shapes, sleek lines, and modern design.

Design Goals

  • Must easily fit on my coffee table
  • Not too difficult to model using Solidworks
  • Minimal yet aesthetically pleasing
  • Doesn’t require more than one water pump
  • Creates a steady water flow

Current Plan

I used AI to create the image above to my specifications, as I have not yet finished creating the 3D model of the fountain, however, I plan to finalize the model soon and start 3D printing the first prototype. The fountain will be fully 3D printed. I also plan on purchasing a water pump and all of the necessary wiring very soon.

    Hi Ali, your project looks very interesting! It almost looks like there is lighting in the water basins in the AI generated image you attached, do you plan on adding extra lighting to your fountain?

    This is a really cool project, I think it was cool that you utilized AI image generation for ideas! How loud do you think this will be when turned on?

    This looks awesome! Are you expecting the 3d model you are making yourself to directly match the AI generated image?
