About Project

Looking for a pet feeder and water dispenser that's as sleek and stylish as your furry friend? Look no further! These stunning prototypes, 3D printed using Stereolithography (SLA) technology by FacFox, showcase the power of using 3D printing for eye-catching product development.

Made in a vibrant yellow-green color, these prototypes are all about appearance development. They feature no internal structures, allowing designers to perfect the look and feel before moving on to functionality.


The Pet Feeder:

• Futuristic design with a flat, round screen on top – perfect for integrating a built-in AI assistant for voice-controlled feeding.

• No buttons – hinting at a completely touchless or voice-activated interface.

• Sleek window on the side for easy monitoring of food levels.


The Water Dispenser:

• User-friendly touch screen on the front for effortless control of water temperature, on/off function, and potentially even mode selection.

• Transparent, semi-spherical cap for easy refilling. The cap features a small, matching yellow-green top for a pop of color.

These prototypes are a prime example of how SLA 3D printing from FacFox can help bring your pet care product visions to life. SLA printing offers incredibly smooth finishes and high resolution, perfect for creating prototypes that look and feel like the final product.

  • Step 1: Modeling. The journey began with 3D models, meticulously designed to incorporate all the envisioned features. The pet feeder’s model included a compartment for the AI mechanism and a side window, while the water dispenser’s model featured a touchscreen interface and a refillable water chamber.
  • Step 2: Resin Selection. For these prototypes, two types of resins were selected:
    • Generic Resin: Known for its versatility and cost-effectiveness, it was used for the main structural components.
    • Clear Resin: Chosen for its transparency, it was utilized for the water dispenser’s cap and the feeder’s window to allow visibility of the contents.
  • Step 3: Printing. The SLA (Stereolithography) 3D printing process was initiated, where ultraviolet (UV) lasers cured the liquid resin layer by layer, building up the prototypes with precision and detail.
  • Step 4: Post-Processing.
    • Cleaning: After printing, the prototypes were washed in isopropyl alcohol to remove any uncured resin.
    • Curing: They were then placed in a UV curing chamber to ensure the resin fully solidified, enhancing the strength and stability of the prototypes.
  • Step 5: Color Application. The primary color application involved spraying the prototypes with a yellow-green dye, carefully selected to match the desired aesthetic. This step was crucial for appearance development, giving the prototypes their distinctive look.
  • Step 6: Detailing. Silver paint was applied to logos and plates, adding a touch of elegance and brand identity. This step required a steady hand and an eye for detail to maintain the prototypes’ sleek appearance.
  • Step 7: Screen Printing. The interactive screens were not merely attached; they were silk-screen printed onto the surface of the prototypes. This process involved creating a stencil of the screen design and using it to apply layers of ink, resulting in a durable and integrated display.
  • Step 8: Final Inspection. The completed prototypes underwent a thorough inspection to ensure all aspects met the design specifications and quality standards.
