Project #4: Office Supply Storage
Recent analysis by the Staples finance department has concluded that sales for desktop organization products have declined in recent years. The company would like to ramp up their profits in this area by enhancing the aesthetic nature of these products.
Your group of three has been hired to design a set of theme-based organizational products. Your team will design a set of office supplies that are tied together with a common theme. You must be able to justify the theme that connects the products together. The idea is that the customer will not want to buy just one; they will want to buy the whole set.
Pencil holder that can securely hold at least 5 pencils
Expo marker holder than can securely hold at least 4 markers
Pen holder that can securely hold at least 5 pens
Tape dispenser that will hold and cut a roll of scotch tape
Anything you can get approved by your project manager!

It should be cool to look at and unique - a conversation starter. An individual walking by would do a double take to more closely examine the amazingly interesting item you’ve created.
There should be a theme that ties the products together
It should have multiple extrusions for detail
It should contain examples of ALL THREE main features: revolve, sweep, loft
It takes advantage of the following: circular pattern, linear pattern, mirror
It takes advantage of at least one of the following: filleting, chamfering
Each piece should fit within a 10cm x 10 cm x 10cm cube
Should be 3D printable
