Description:
Our company is looking for enclosure designs for a set of 3 PCB modules which can connect together to form one single product. Our chosen manufacturer uses folded plastic sheet, although design ideas do not need to be limited to this process.
The main board can feature as a standalone product but in many cases will be connected with the HV and I/O submodule boards, in which case they need to form a single product. There should be a lock-in mechanism on the side panels of the main enclosure to allow connection with HV board and I/O board. The Main board will have an LED panel illuminating the company logo (which will change colours based on the product status). Each individual enclosure should be DIN rail mountable. The top and bottom inputs and outputs modules on each board should be exposed so that appropriate connections can be made without opening the box. The way the three modules assemble together into one product should be similar to this:

sie.ag/1E7emGo

Beyond the technical specifications we are looking for a fresh design to take away the feel of an industrial product and make this looks more like a consumer product. We are looking for something sleek and fresh with the look and feel of a quality product.
Wants:
Original design, fresh look, innovation.
Company Logo:
Yes
Software:
  1. AutoCAD (latest)
  2. SolidWorks (latest)

Hi Ahchap,

Thank you for your entry, the design you proposed has clean lines however is not for off from an off the shelf case and I think the team will like to see something more creative.

Thank you and good luck.

Hi,
1: I did not understand what you like (you can make a skech)
2: the middle part is completely autonomous.
3: you choose what you want color as same as the product name you are free

Hi REDA, the team didn't feel this is going the rigjt direction, they don't like the colour or the look of the middle boc as a stand alone unit.

Hi Luka,

Thank you for your comment, unfortunately 3D files for the PCBs with all the electronic components and connectors are not available at the moment, that's why we have provided the pictures with all the angles on connectors so you have a better understanding of the dimensions.
We are not interested in modeling the electronic components, just the enclosures.

As mentioned before, it's the overall design idea that will weight the most in the final decision. Dimensions adjustment can be made to fit the electronics by the manufacturer engineers before production.

Best regards,
Mircea

Hello sir,

I would like to participate in your contest as I have been successful in many similar designing contest here and on other sites, but I think it would be really good if you could upload CAD files from the electronics in a neutral format (step/iges), after all our job is to design the outer housing and not the inner electronics. That would surely bring bigger competition so people would waste with modeling something that is already designed.

Regards,

Luka

Hotel Butler Robot
I am looking for an industrial design of a hotel butler robot with manufacturing specification. I would like an interchangeable face module - 1 with the mascot as the face, another with a screen as the face. Additionally the robot needs to have an interchangeable stand to make it taller like the Double ipad stand. http://www.doublerobotics.com/ Here are some of the specs the robot needs to possess so you can factor it into the design: Size: 56 x 35 x 35 cm Weight: 5-8kg with the majority of the weight at the bottom of the robot Exterior Components: • Rechargeable battery pad/station Interchangeable Modules: • Butler face head • Screen face head • Stand (Double Like) to extend height http://www.doublerobotics.com/ Internal Component: • 1080HD w night vision camera • 2W speaker with 22mm diaphragm • 1 microphone • 1HDMI output • 1USB output • 1SD card slot • Range finder sensors • Ground detection sensors • Object Detection sensors • 4 motors feedback control • Head rotation 2 Axes: 1st +/- 90°, 2nd +80°/-60° • Base Movement 360° (2 drive wheels, 3rd support wheel) • Electrical Rechargeable Battery • Wifi & SIM Card Deliverable: 1) Butler Robot looking mostly like the attached mascot with an interchangeable screen module and rechargeable pad design 2) Adjustable height stand – see Double for reference 3) Video showing its movement and interchangeable module in order to show to the client 4) Manufacturing specifications
Euler Motors
Govt. of India has introduced new category of Vehicle - E Rickshaw last year primarily to uplift the working condition of rickshaw-pullers (from an otherwise physically taxing mode of commute, rickshaw pullers and drivers now have an easier and greener alternative.) E Rickshaw comes in two variant - Passenger Vehicle and Goods Carrier. Euler Motors is working on 3 Wheeler Electric Good Carrier variant for Indian Market - Tier 3/4 Markets { Villages, Small Townships }. Here is specification according to government :- 1. Top Speed = 25 Km/H 2. Load Capacity = 310 Kgs 3. Length x Width x Height = 2.8 m x 1 m x 1.8 m . (Dimensions are in Meters) Here are some of the existing version of E Rickshaw Goods Carrier :- https://goo.gl/kTx6ho https://goo.gl/vWCgjm https://goo.gl/wFLdQZ https://goo.gl/SSYsfy https://goo.gl/3FTk7n https://goo.gl/p2xjS3 Salient Features That Euler Motors is working on :- 4.3” Inch Digital Display { Link = https://goo.gl/5EJFuw } instead of Regular Dial based display { Link = https://goo.gl/CpC4fv }. This display will display stats around Speed, Battery Left, Temp., Headlights, Indicator Reverse Backup Camera : To enhance Safety of the vehicle and driver, a reverse backup camera will be attached to the rear - centre of the vehicle. Display from camera would appear on the 4.3” Digital display when vehicle reverses. Li Ion Battery will be placed in front of the vehicle {below the driver’s seat}. However the structure should be made in a way that the battery can taken out from enclosure within 2 minutes if required. Entire battery back will consist of 2 modules. Each module will be of following dimensions Each Module’s Weight = 12 Kgs Each Module’s size : Length x Width x Height = 220 mm x 210 mm x 355 mm 2 Modules can be arranged along the width of vehicle or height in the battery pack. Required Items inside the Vehicle:- Li Ion Charging Spot needs to be on the vehicle installed. Vehicle needs to include First Aid Box Mini Fire Extinguisher Vehicle Charging Point needs to be on vehicle { https://goo.gl/Ngp8KZ , https://goo.gl/5p7buC } Standard vehicle parts - Front head light {LED headlight}, Front Indicator, Tail Lights, Rear Indicator, brake pedal. Accelerator in the conventional 3 wheeler are along the handle.
Design the coolest penis rings
We already have a successful line of vibrating penis rings, to get an idea visit http://www.ovo.de/en/category/rings. The new line will be different, though, ovo is a line created with a white, clean, mainstream concept, the new line will be branded LooP. "LooP Maximum Performance"will be inspired in sports and concept cars, men worldwide appeal very well to sports cars and performance is always related to them, therefore, sexual performance can be inspired in sports cars. Designers need to take the following into account: 1. Vibrating penis rings must meet their promise, they deliver orgasms by stimulating both, men and women during intercourse, designers must think of the ergonomics of sex, the ring constrains the flow of blood to the penis but the part that holds the motor serves a double purpose, it indirectly stimulates men and directly stimulates the clitoris, so successful designs must consider an elevation of the part that holds the motor. 2. I envision these rings as a fusion between the ring and a sports car, the front of the "car" is the ring and the hood holds the motor, the elevation that will get in contact with the clitoris is the "windshield" and the hood, the vibration from the motor will diffuse to the "windshield" and the "hood" the back of the ring is just pure design. 2. The material is medical grade silicone as it is stretchy and tissue safe, this also means the following constrains: Silicone is matt finished, attaining a glossy color is somewhat difficult but not impossible, there should not be too many elements in the ring as these rings perform in a "wet" environment, bacteria can get inside the joints of different layers. 3. I want 16 different rings, each of them inspired in a sports or concept car, we will have suggestive names for them like "Loop Stealth", "LooP M3", "LooP Viper", etc. Finally, Have fun, I think it's an amazing project!! PS. Attached is our number one selling penis ring from the current line, that will give you an idea on size, weight and motor positioning. Also, I have attached a preliminary logo, the symbol you see is the celtic symbol of virility which could nicely be used in the rings the same way sports car have a symbol on the hood.
