Abstract/Artist Statement

Finding the ideal shower temperature is a task encountered every day; a small movement of the shower knob can result in a radical temperature jump in the water exiting the shower head. This project's mission is to design and fabricate a shower control handle that will enable the user to quickly and accurately obtain their desired water temperature. This process is achieved through a gear reduction system employing dials to perform coarse and fine adjustment. Currently all final design objectives have been achieved. Minor 3D printing amendments are being made to further overcome manufacturing obstacles, and once those changes have been applied, it is anticipated that product testing will prove a successful design.
