Jack Sundberg: Project 2

The second project for this course aimed for creating a household object. The vast majority of students took this assignment and created the standard cup, box, or simply a coaster  — the standard house hold objects that are easily printed due to simply shapes. However, rather than make a standalone object, I decide to make an attachment for an everyday object: a sliding cover.

Yes, at first glance the cover seems pretty limited due to its shape; however, the overall design and decorative top can easily be adjusted in the x-y plane to fit the desired object without loss in function or artistic design. The current dimensions are set for attachment to my PC plugins — that is to prevent dust from accumulating when the plug are not in use!

 

As for the celtic knot on the cover, we can actually calculate the crossing number for it. Counting up the overlaps/crosses in the knot, we get 49 crossings!
