This week’s featured 3D print was submitted by Julia Yan and the EcoSpin team.
Julia and her team worked with the library on a capstone project for Materials Science & Engineering Senior Design Project. The product, EcoSpin, is a microfiber catching laundry ball. Julia approached the Digital Fabrication Lab to receive help translating the team’s idea into a 3D printable object. With very little knowledge of 3D design software she worked with Lexi Voss, the lab’s Visualizationist, to create the first prototype (pictured below). After months of research and redesigning the team collected enough data to prove their laundry ball will aid in preventing ocean pollution. To learn more about EcoSpin see an article written by Penn Today titled “Engineering a solution for microplastic pollution“.
