TivaWater: Solving Global Problems With Simple Design

By: Stratasys

TivaWater's Mission

TivaWaterTivaWater began with one mission: to bring affordable, clean drinking water to 750 million people in the world without access to a safe water supply. To reach their goal, TivaWater needed an innovative and transformative design.

Enter the TivaWater home filtration system. The durable, slow-sand water filter sanitizes even the dirtiest water at the point of use, removing 99.999% of bacteria and viruses. It eliminates the need to boil, transport or store water in contaminated and unreliable containers.

Since 2010, more than 100,000 people have been given the gift of pure water. Prior to production, TivaWater turned to us to verify the filter. With the help of our Engineering Services and Rapid Prototyping teams, TivaWater was able to finalize the design and test water quality with a real life working model.

How We Helped

In our two-part video series, you’ll get an inside look at how SOLIDWORKS CAD software, the Stratasys Fortus 450mc and our talented RP Services team helped make the prototype. We’ll show you how the TivaWater filter is helping thousands of vulnerable families, then go behind the scenes to discuss design modifications and the 3D printing process.
