3D-Printed Fish Tanks

This 40-Liter High-Tech Fish Tank Boasts Cutting-Edge Features

— February 23, 2015 — Art & Design
Believe it or not, designers are coming up with ways to develop high-tech fish tanks that are 3D-printed. Charles Tornros's product is the Norrom Aquarium, made by 3D printing technology to a design that's equally forward-thinking.

The equipment and accessories that you typically need to set up an aquatic habitat in your home or office are reduced with this design. The light is built into the transparent cylinder of this large 40L container, creating a proper ambient source of illumination for the scaly creatures inside, as well as people on the outside. The kit naturally comes with an electric air pump, a one-way valve, a filter sponge, airline tubing and rings, pellets and stones for aquascaping. The finished product is incredible tidy and quite minimalist. This 3D-printed high-tech fish tank also comes with interchangeable caps to suit your particular preference for texture and color decor.
Trend Themes
1. 3d-printed Aquatic Habitats - Advancements in 3D-printing technology are revolutionizing the design and construction of fish tanks, reducing the need for traditional equipment and accessories.
2. Embedded Illumination - The integration of built-in lighting systems directly into the transparent structure of fish tanks offers a seamless and aesthetically pleasing source of ambient illumination.
3. Customizable Caps for Personalization - The use of interchangeable caps in 3D-printed fish tanks allows individuals to easily customize the texture and color decor to suit their preferences.
Industry Implications
1. Aquarium and Fishkeeping Industry - The aquarium and fishkeeping industry can leverage 3D-printing technology to create innovative and customizable fish tanks that enhance the overall user experience.
2. Home Decor Industry - The home decor industry can capitalize on the trend of 3D-printed fish tanks by offering a range of stylish and customizable aquatic habitats as decorative elements for homes and offices.
3. Lighting Industry - The lighting industry has the opportunity to develop specialized lighting solutions tailored for the integration into 3D-printed fish tanks, providing unique illumination experiences.
