Charlie's Personality

As part of our marketing strategy, we want each printer to be unique. We want individuals to build a personal connection with their machines, as exemplified by our use of names such as "Charlie". To accompany the various names and personalities of our printers, we have designed our software to have different color schemes, some of which are pictured above. These color schemes will match the paint job on the robot.

In addition to changing colors, our application can change size. It is designed to dynamically adapt to various screen sizes, so users will have a consistent experience regardless of form factor. The menus, buttons, and pages automatically fill the screen, and use the space they are assigned as effectively as possible, so buttons are always as large as possible relative to screen size.
