Description

The model certainly does it's job, and houses the four remotes that previously cluttered my living room.

The four rings are meant to be rests for the remotes and do actually do the job. I printed them as separate objects so that I could play with colour mixing, and also so that different designs and shapes could be interchanged to change the look, and and provide specific support for a strange shaped remote for example. As they are, they work fine with all of my remotes, so I'm unlikely to change them for now.

The model is designed with two large cavities in the bottom - the idea is that some ballast can be added to give the model some weight (some heavy coins hot glued in place worked very well, bringing the final weight of the model up to about 0.4kg, which works very well stopping it flipping over when a heavy remote is put into it), or potentially to store a few spare batteries. Also of course, it reduces the amount of plastic required, which turned out to be a key move for me as this is not a quick model to print at the resolution I choose.

Further infomormation about this and other models I create can be found in the blog & gallery sections of my website: http://www.soldersuckerblog.com
