More student products improvement with 3D printing

In an earlier post I showed how a student designed an improved pencil sharpener (the green one in the photo gallery). He wasn’t entirely satisfied. After doing some further consumer research he realised that although his new design was really quite good the market was more limited for a desktop device… So after re writing his specification to match his research he came up with this device… It’s a first generation design and will obviously improve in subsequent iterations but I must admit I really like the elegance of this solution.. Fold out handles for a better grip, uses a standard pencil sharpener for its mechanism and just the sort of quirky design that appeals to youngsters.

I’ll hopefully let you know more as this progresses… Unless his design becomes a marketable product !
