Snap Part

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
A plastic right triangle wedge shell design suitable for an injection mold process. A male X side and a female Y side that can be unsnapped or snapped together in any 90 degree configuration. The opposite and adjacent sides are 1.25" square. The hypotenuse side is a separate flat piece that snaps in to the wedge. (See attached sample image)
The 2 snap sides should be shallow but fit snugly, face to face, in any 90 degree configuration. A small pry key may be used to separate adjacent parts.
Wants:
Accuracy and functional snap design. Ability to be injection molded in 3 parts or less.
Software:
  1. SolidWorks - STEP - IGES

#16 Snappy Config by Ridwan Septyawan
"Snappy Config"
Just have 2 components :
- Top Cover ( material : ABS Plastic or else )
- Male & Female Body ( material : ABS Plastic or else )
We just need 2 molding, for Top Cover and Male & Female Body, each mold construciton just need "core and cavity" to create the part shape model. Each mold construction doesn't need "side core" so the mold cost can be cheaper.
You can see at my attached files to more detail and specific description.
Need your feedback to make this product better.
Best Regards,
Ridwan S

Please check the 3D-PDFs.
A 3D-PDF can be opened just with Adobe PDF Reader. Click on the picture to activate the 3D-Mode. Use it to check everything.
I made the contact parts to allow you to contact in 90° and also 45° variations.
Please give me a feedback with a message.

#15 Snappy Rev 1 by Ridwan Septyawan
Just use 2 mold
"Male and Female Body" and "Top Snap"
Each mold construction just use core and cavity (without side core construction mold; more simple and cheaper mold cost)
Use plastic material : ABS (or another recommended material)
Need your feedback.

Hi Snap part,
Thank you for rating please

Could you explain the work function of this part?
I have experience in injection molding for many years, both in product and mold design.
It's important to know the work function when design an injection molded part, to avoid undesirable shape or unnecessary mold piece(s).

Any 90 degree configuration means hypotenuse side can be flipped up side down?

I give consulant also in this thing for my clients. But I will write you in a PM about that.

What would you want the thickness of the shell to be?

Yes the cap should snap firmly and add to the overall stability of the structure. Of course, a 3d printed prototype could be produced in one piece, correct? Is 3d printing an option for production runs of 1000+ units or is 3d printing still too expensive for that?
Fri, 10 Jul 2015 17:02:51 +0000
when you see the 3D-pdf's, you will see that the central cyrcle is a help to get the position. The other snaps get places closed. I didn't leave spaces. The snape force is in the direction of the cyrcle center. this give more stabilisation.

When you want, I can give you a link to order a 3D-printed prototype. I think, It is a good Idea, or what?

But maybe first I can finish the cap. So, must is be get hard to be removed, must be snaped, or what?

Thanks! Much better! Yes, the rectangle top should snap on firmly and will not commonly be removed after attached. Does the central hub represent some kind of friction snap? Are the outer D slots for 90 degree positioning only? Can the central snap be scaled up a little to increase the friction surface?
Fri, 10 Jul 2015 13:54:21 +0000
I have added my design. Please give a feedback and tell us about the cap. Must it be hard fixed?

I understude what you need. I made many products like this for the industry for molding, so for me it is no problem. In will make it today for you.

Sheet metal enclosure design
Please note: this role is ideal for a Midlands (UK) based CAD designer who can make regular trips to our Birmingham office as you will be measuring actual components to extract raw dimensions/data. We require designs of sheet metal enclosures for electro-mechanical components working predominantly with aluminium, zintec and stainless steel. Note: this role isn't really aimed at 3D renderers and 'product designers' as we require manufacturing and actual shop-floor experience. Clever and innovative designs will be needed to avoid expensive tooling and some parts may involve CNC machining, extrusion or 3D printing. I'd say we're looking more for an 'old school' CAD designer with a flair for innovative design. Expect 25% of your time measuring, chopping and changing - all of which may be frustrating at times. We're a young startup and a casual bunch so need to work with a designer with whom we can gel for long-term co-operation. The project deliverable includes all the necessary 3D and 2D drawing files including STP, PDF, DWG/DXF and Solidworks.
