Rhino model

My Mother's Alphabet was part of the The Occurrence of You and Me exhibition by Ehryn Torrell and Dot San was asked to manufacture a custom type ball for a 1960s IBM Selectric typewriter based on an existing model. The existing type had to be replaced by a font Torrell designed based on her mother's handwritten letters. This was a very challenging project which required reverse engineering an existing Selectric type ball and understanding the location and design of each letter uniquely affected the print quality. Further, the 3D printing process itself was pushed as Dot San and Torrell worked together though 11 prototypes to gain functionality, durability and maximum print quality.

Ehryn Torrell is a Canadian visual artist who lives and works in London. Her exhibition 'The Occurrence of You and Me', attempts to formulate a highly personal expression of loss, grief and our genuine attempts to relate to ourselves and others. The exhibit used a number of different mediums which included 3D product design and 3D printing.
The multi-media work 'My Mother's Alphabet' was part of the exhibition and Dot San was asked to manufacture a custom type ball for a 1960s IBM Selectric typewriter based on an existing model. The existing type had to be replaced by a font Torrell designed based on her mother's handwritten letters. This was a very challenging project which required reverse engineering an existing Selectric type ball and understanding the location and design of each letter uniquely affected the print quality. Further, the 3D printing process itself was pushed as Dot San and Torrell worked together though 11 prototypes to gain functionality, durability and maximum print quality.

“Working with Dot San has been great. They were ready for this project and its particular challenges and obstacles, but neither of us could have predicted how exciting and maddening it would be. It took IBM 7 years to manufacture this part for the Selectric typewriter, and we were trying to understand the complexities of the object with very different eyes, skills, materials and production methods. We developed a great Skype symbiosis due to the rigorous demands of the project. Due to the shape of the object and characteristics of nylon as a printed material, Dot San would have to find creative solutions to thicken the lines of the letter without significantly altering their character. They are patient, thoughtful, inventive and very generous. I really enjoyed working with them.”
