Design an bin that can allow consumers to organize and store their trash more efficiently at home
To get a better sense of scale, I first created a prototype of my design using my limited supply of cardboard boxes. This helped me visualize the height of the bin and gave me another idea on how to make the design look more sleek. instead of creating a slidable back panel for the disposal guideline posters, I can place them behind a plastic shield within the underside of the lid. As a result, when you press on the foot pedal the poster’s come into view.
Using this new information, I went back into Shapr3D and created a 3D model drawn to scale. I annotated the dimensions in the screenshots below.
I did not include in my 3D model the bag clip feature or a trash bag replacement compartment since I am still working on the most efficient design.
