Small devices

It is a continuing project about making something useful with limited resources in hand.

It is also a process of handling techniques like 3d modelling, 3d printing and etc., and about experimentation to testify ideas in real life.

I set some principles for the project:

  1. The device should be an easy fix.
  2. The device should be optimised to be 3d printed.
  3. The device should help me to understand the gap between ideas and physical world.
  4. The device should help me to understand more about 3d modelling and printing.

  5. Think less, do more.
  6. Kill a bit time.
  7. Have some fun.

1. Joint
Jun. 2023
It holds the timber or other materials without damaging them meanwhile offering portability for transportation of the overall structure.

It is potentially more sustainable due to its homogeneous material used on each kind of functional parts and it is designed to be dissembled easily.

It requires less making process.
It uses standerd components.
It requires less on heavy machinery.
It is able to be produced locally.
It offers flexibility.
