The project started in May 2015 and finished in August 2015 in in West Lafayette, IN , and was exhibited in Purdue gallery in November 2015.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The "Bookend" 3D data can be downloaded by anyone in the 3D printer community, paying one time fee and the user can build as many of their own customizable bookend with different size, color, and material options.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 158 mm x Depth 140 mm x Height 114 mm

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Ethnographic research was conducted to find out on student user behaviors, how they organize their desk, what are the items they keep on their desk, and problems of keeping them clean.

CHALLENGE:
There are many desk organizers that are developed for solving this issue, so it is somewhat challenge to come up with anything new for the user. Also, there are many challenges building an object using a 3D printer with its limitations.
