[Emily The Engineer] wished a 3D printing challenge, so naturally, she determined to print a working rest room. Try the colourful contraption within the video beneath. In the beginning, we thought making it watertight could be a bit troublesome, which proved to be an issue. Nevertheless, some cautious work with sealing and soldering irons did permit her to make a working flushable rest room.
Mercifully, we don’t get to see the system in precise use, and, so far as we will inform, she by no means really linked it to the plumbing in her residence. But it surely did fill from a backyard hose, shut itself off, and flush 3D printer waste, rest room paper, and different materials out of its drain. It doesn’t seem that the designs have been made public, however since one thing of this dimension would doubtless take lots of of print hours to finish, we aren’t certain anybody would actually wish to do that anyway.
Nevertheless, among the methods would possibly come in useful in case you are engaged on one thing that has to deal with water. In the event you do replicate this for precise use, contemplate that many 3D printed plastics aren’t thought-about food-safe as a result of you possibly can’t adequately clear the little ridges from the layer traces. In the event you have been actually utilizing this for its supposed goal, cleansing could be a excessive precedence.
In direction of the top, the over-engineering bug hit, and also you get to see an add-on bidet, armrests, and even cell casters. A enjoyable challenge, even when a bit impractical. As an artwork set up, although, we’ve undoubtedly seen worse.
A cell rest room is a singular concept, proper? Um — perhaps not. If [Emily] does a second model, we’d recommend making the TP roll holder heated.
