Whalington 6.0

3D model description

We created a model that represents a whale tail standing up. The model is meant to hold up a phone vertically and underneath the model, there's a path so that the phone charger can run underneath and stay hidden, so that it doesn't take up space on their desk. We added a design onto the front of it that represents the ocean and the sun because that's where whales live, and where 70% of our oxygen comes from. On the back of the whales tail is a hook that can hold their headphones. We came up with this idea because we are interning at an office and wanted to make something that could declutter their desk and keep the charger on the desk, to prevent it from constantly falling off. At first we were going to have the whales tail lay flat but we changed the design so that it takes up less space on desk tables or any surface that it's on.

3D printing settings

We printed it of on a Formlabs 2 3D printer, and we created a model that was smaller, due to time circumstances but we predict that it will take about 9 hours for it to print at the accurate size.
