When discussing a new product, it is essential to consider the needs and desires of the intended audience for the product design. As a result, engineering systems are constantly evolving to achieve a higher degree of ideality. The process of designing new products involves a continuous search for solutions and requires designers to uphold high standards in their thinking abilities. Design itself is a form of thinking and action that encompasses various activities, including visualization, creative thinking, user empathy, and reasoning from function to form. The objective of designing a new product is to comprehend and impact the world around us by creating products that fulfill people's needs and desires. The purpose of this article is to present an innovative design for a printer. Our contribution is to provide a brief overview of a uniquely designed solar printer. To accomplish the goals of this article, a thorough review of existing literature in the field was conducted. The primary aim of this research is to emphasize the significance of a printer that can be used throughout a lifetime.
