Shoe design

in 3D Modeling Design held by Dear Darling
Contest Closed
Description:
I am looking to explore the idea of "reinventing" shoes. I'm looking to create a shoe that turns from a heel to a flat. In order to do so i need a mechanism for the heel to flip out and lock into place from a groove on the sole of the shoe. The heel itself would be based on a lever where you can push the heel into a groove of the bottom of the shoe to make the shoe a flat. Then click it out using a very simple unlocking system on the sides of the shoe ( a bit like when you unclick the lid of a calpol bottle pressing on both sides) to make it into a heel.
Wants:
Ideally what i am looking for is a mechanism that locks and unlocks a heel into place using 2 buttons on both sides of the shoe to be pressed to release. The heel must have a 90 degree flexibility and support the weight of a woman when clicked into place. To bring the heel into its groove again to make a shoe a flat, i would like to use the weight of a person to press down at an angle onto the heel a bit like a spring (using their feet as a force) in order to lock the heel back in.
Ask for Sample:
A sample would be great with a paper copy with a diagram showing how the sample was assembled together.

Yes you can. Please remember the material must be durable, thin and strong to hold an adults weight

Mechanical jewellery
I have two 3d ring designs with a moving part. I would like the rings to be printed in steel and assembled after printing manually such that the moving part is inserted easily in the ring. Manual assembly can involve a lock, a latch, or screw mechanism that snaps the ring together never to come apart. The rings will be printed on shapeways.com.

Accent Piece
I have 3D probed/scanned an object that I need to recreate on my CNC router. I'm using Vectric VCarve Pro software- but its limited in it's 3d editing capabilities- Vectric Aspire is what I would need, but do not have the funds to upgrade at this time. So what I need is this object rendered fully in a 3D model (the other half is the same as what was scanned already (mirror image)- AND, the other side of the object has a contour to it. I have yet to probe that side, but would just do a small portion, and that can be extended to create the backside "carve". So I need to do a 2-sided machining of this object. I assume an .stl file or similar would be what I need.
