Who wants to talk about that?  Well,  we’re doing potty talk here today.  And yes, American Standard Brand offers a self cleaning toilet.

Bathrooms are notorious for germs, and toilets are a prime culprit. We have engineered a high-performance toilet that features a germ-free, no-touch flush – it’s called ActiVate. A simple wave of your hand and your toilet flushes waste away.

 Take a very close look at these 3D printed faucets.  Where is the water coming from? Faucets as pictured here are:

  • Shadowbrook: presents water as a stream bouncing on rock in riverbed.
  • Trope: four thin sections curve upward to meet midway up faucet stem.
  • Vibrato: delicate latticework concealing waterways that converge at top.

“DXV transformed faucet design and engineering with the launch of the first residential faucets created with 3D printing. -While this technique has been used to create plastic prototypes for years, these are the first ready-for-market residential faucets printed in metal.

The faucets are printed using a computer-guided laser beam that fuses powdered metal into the desired shape with high heat and pressure. A solid metal block gradually arises out of the powder, and is then hand-finished to smooth any extraneous metal and reveal the design shape. In a revival of bespoke craftsmanship, the faucet is then hand-finished by artisans who give it a rich, fine patina and feel that mimics the texture found on antique silver pieces.”Lixil
