    Posting here for suggestions.

    We looking to have a demonstration toilet made which is clear or transparent.

    Does anyone know of a company which might have this capability.?

    Any information would help... you can PM me, reply here, or email me.

    Sounds like an interesting project, but I don't think I'd use a 3D print output... for a bunch of reasons:
    1. Complexity of the project
    2. Reliability / water-proofing / strength
    3. Even the most clear wouldn't probably be clear enough... as shown in this video:

    I'd probably go with a cutaway toilet with plexiglass... like in this old-school video:
