Summary of the Project:
The objective of our project is to provide the people of Cape York with clean filtered water in an affordable and accessible way. This is because water mains treatment centres in Cape York can shut down unexpectedly causing dirty contaminated water to enter the mains. It allows for people who get their water through collected rainwater to quickly and easily clean and filter their water and it allows for better water management.
As an optional extra a shipped water metre can measure water consumption during times of scarce rainfall. Importing materials can also be tough due to the limited infrastructure. The Idea is to provide a water filter attached to your tap which will passively filter out sediment and kill bacteria.
The entire body is made from materials that are locally sourced within the local area cutting down on cost due to transportation and funding local communities as the tap attachment is assembled and made in the local area, while local companies can be created also by the locals to source and manufacture materials. Such as a bamboo farm for the body. All these features make our product a better option when compared to other products that are available such as the Brita water filter tap attachment costing $70.17
This is an assembly drawing of our final cad model, showing the different components of the build, their measurements, and at different projections,
This is a cut section of our final assembly cad model, showing the different interlocking components, joined together using dowel joints, along with short notes explaining the different components and their functionality.
This is the exploded view animation, made using the final CAD models of the tap attachment. This shows the consumer how the product comes together.
This is the poster we created for our final project submission.
This is the feature map that we designed for our project in the prototype stage. The separate colours allow the reader to easily tell which information corresponds to the different components.
This is our exploded view video of the prototype model.
This is our prototype design video that we created as an AD campaign for the consumer.
This is the cost breakdown that we created for the final design.
This is our Instruction manual, including diagrams and sketches for visual aid.
