Design a Dynamic Mini Golf Set!

Hi Cad Crowders

I would like to have one of my ideas designed. It is a physical mini golf (putt putt) game that is made up of several pieces that can be assembled together in different combinations to create different playing surfaces. The mini golf game would be suitable for use for fun at in places such as homes, offices, garages and schools for fun and putting practice.

- There should be around 12 - 15 sections/pieces in multiple shapes.
- Mostly square shaped pieces, approximately 700x700mm
- Some other shapes including triangles, semi-circles and miscellaneous which can be attached and used for changing direction.
- Some pieces should have vertical rises and falls for added challenge in play
- Some obstacles (basic cube or triangular prisms) for added challenge
- Pieces could be connected by magnets
- The course should be green coloured (like a putting green)
- Design one of each of the following pieces: square, equilateral triangle, semicircle and a couple of miscellaneous shapes.
- Each piece should be capable of joining to any other piece (i.e. the sides should be the same size)

- The idea is that all sections can be attached to each other in many different ways so that there is a large number of possible arrangements for playing. The final piece should have a hole for the ball to enter as well as a small flag.

The attached drawing is a VERY basic concept. The shapes are a top-view of some various shaped pieces and how they could possibly fit together to create a certain configuration for play. This is only one possible combination - the idea is that the pieces can be arranged in MANY different ways to make different games of varying difficulty.

All the best!

Thank you
- Edges to be approx 700mm. For example a square piece would be 700x700mm, a triangular piece would have all sides 700mm.
- Green colouring
- Use whatever software you are comfortable with. T
- The product will eventually be manfactured

#8 Mini Putt Design For Home Or Office by Joel Appugliese
1.Tiles are 700mm x 700 mm (not including male connector)
2.Tiles are Designed with Male and Female Connectors.
3.When Connected, there is space for 2 layers of industry standard magnetic strips (Thickness of 0.060 inches, Width of 0.75 inches)
4.A Male/Male and Female/Female Tile allow for a wide variety of Tile Combinations.
6.Raised Edges on the Tiles are the height of a standard golf ball, limiting the risk of unwanted home or office injuries and breakage of furniture.
5.Models are sealed and ready for Manufacture.
Extended Features
1.Easy to Package
2.Easy to assemble
The Design has taken into consideration the criteria posted on the contest page. Notably, the use of magnetic strip between the tiles means that your course, in any arrangement, will be sturdy.
While Testing the Concept in a virtual environment, a wide variety of arrangements were possible. Each connection between the pieces were verified. The inclusion of a Male/Male and Female/Female Tile greatly diversified the number of arrangements possible, allowing for the triangle and quarter circle tiles to veer the course in any direction.
Individually, the Tiles are very simple, yet their design allows for a very dynamic range of course possibilities. Shorter, more compact Courses are possible by leaving some tiles out, and with several standard extension tiles courses can be stretched or curved.
Between a Hill Tile, a Triangle Tile an Obstacle Tile and 3 Quarter Circle Tiles, 2 of which are sloped and intended to work together as a banked half-moon, It is possible to achieve challenging and fun course layouts, all while maintaining the simple nature of the individual tile design.

This design is a modular design. Each piece can me interchanged with any other piece to create a dynamic putting green. Some pieces even have obstacle you have to put around. A couple further tweeks are needed to make the design flawless. The connection are magnetic ball bearings as displayed in the Magnetic Connection Drawing.

You give me much money for my model? ;)



Sun, 15 Mar 2015 06:03:27 +0000
Seems like a lot of work for $80 I am sure more money would get more attention, you are talking 12-15 3d models plus renderings.

Also, do you have a preferred material &/or manufacturing method?

I can do the design in SolidWorks for you, and simulate the performance as I did in the video below:

A complex helix for visualising a pedagogic hypothesis
The spiral of learning (Kolb & Kolb) is a simple helix visualising the learner's progress. I need to visualise a more complex spiral. Turns on this helix are circular. Each turn represents an interaction between teacher and learner. This helix contains 1 grand turn. A grand turn contains at least 3 smaller turns. This creates a turn complex. Each turn achieves a small or large rise on the z axis depending on the diameter of the turns on the x and y axes. In elevation view the turn complex should have a stepped appearance due to the presence of the smaller turns, with the lowest steps at left and the highest at right. The idea to be communicated is that the larger turns contain at least 3-5 smaller turns. Each turn achieves a small increase in z-height as the learner exits the turn, like freeway traffic using a cloverleaf junction. Multiple interactive turns aggregate to a large gain in z-height. In the attached illustration, the largest loop should be understood as not a part of the visualisation. I would like to see two variations of the design: (1) smaller turns ranged on outside of grand turn diameter (2) smaller turns ranged on inside of grand turn diameter.
