Parametric 3D Industrial Design

in 3D Modeling Design held by Alvaro
Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
The item that will be called “pin” from now on in this document, should work as a fashionable hook to be attached to both a towel an the sand of the beach, so we ensure that the towel will keep its perfect position despite the wind or any other common adversity. There are already similar objects in the market that fulfill this objective as it can be seen in the images below (the technology to fix/tie/hook the towel to the sand could be different than the one shown in the images, we are opened to develop a new/different ways to fix the pin. That is the key point of this project.)
Wants:
Design
Cost of future production
Don't Wants:
We can not copy the other desing approach we include in the brief. we only want to show an initial idea of the concept
Ask for Sample:
The first thing it is to show us a concept. Then we choose the best to do the job
Software:
  1. .STP - Step 3D CAD
  2. .IPS

Good morning,

First of all sorry for the delay answer. We was analyzing the designs in a depth way. We would like to explain that unfortunately none of them are the design we are looking for…. But we have paid in advance in order to improve the designs and you can ensure that we want work with one of you..
Also if we will be so happy and satisfied, we will pay more. We thinks that them ideas will be the best but is far away from the pin we are looking for:

#66 CLOVER HOOK by BV-MEC-DESIGN
Hi Alvaro,
Many thanks for your consideration.
I decided to apply a new design, meaning your opinion. So, I kept the winged fixing system and I tried to give a more attractive aspect.
Moreover, I added a few needles to fix the towel (a simple and efficient solution).
Actually, I have knowledge of plastic materials and injection molding (mold design) and I can help you to develop a product suitable for production.
I hope this wil be to your taste and we could collaborate in the future!
Kind regards!

#60 Pin_from_TJ by Tejas R
This is a simplistic design concept, which can be easily 3D printed or manufactured at very low cost using injection molding. I can even assist in the production (very low cost in India) if you want me to. I have shared STEP file, 3D model in STEP format, and also a video demo along with some screenshots.
I can make any revisions that you want.

#56 5" diameter Beach "Ballast" Ball by Advandes
The spherical ball is made up of 4 identical parts that fit neatly together to form a perfect sphere. The sphere is only 5” in diameter and can fit easily into your hand. Each section of the sphere (let’s call it a wedge) is held together with magnets and are aligned with the small tab located on each side. Each “wedge” is hollow on the inside allowing you to scoop up a fair amount of sand into the wedge to create the ballast that will help to hold down each corner of the beach blanket. When leaving the beach, just shake out the sand and assemble the sphere. I have included a file that should allow you to 3D print 4 wedges to prototype the assembly. You will have to find some magnets that will fit into the cavities provided in the mold. The magnets are glued in place. I can’t think of a better and more novel idea for your project, so I hope you like it… Aaron

#90 MUSHROOM CAP TOWEL HOOK by BV-MEC-DESIGN
Hi Alvaro,
I have some new ideas for your project.
A sandbox with diameter of 40mm and 250mm long (it contains a pound of sand) fitted with four fins that will open when the hook is inserted in the sand. After the complet insertion the pin will be rotated clockwise about 90 degrees and the for fins will be closed (the same principle used in my previous model). The 40mm diameter pin is fitted with two ears that will allow the rotation and the extraction of the pin.
When the pin is inserted in the sand the corner of the towel will be introduced into the tube and fixed with the mushroom cap (fitted with small teeth).
Many thanks for your attention!

#76 STARFISH SAND BOX PIN by BV-MEC-DESIGN
Hi Alvaro,
Meaning your indications, I imagined a box full of sand weighting of about a pound as you said. The bottom of the box is formed of 4 fins that will open when the case is pushed into the sand. All you have to do is to push the starfish into the the sand, the fins will open and the box will be filled with sand (about a pound). Then you'll have to rotate the starfish clockwise about a quarter of a rotation (90 degrees). The four fins will be closed and you'll have a fixed hook.
The needle will fix the towel.
To remove the pin all you have to do is to pull it out from the sand and remove the starfish cap. Then the sand will be poured out.
I think the most common material to achieve the weight of about a poud is to use just the sand.
Kind regards!

Alvaro,
, Marco B's design is pretty much what you've described. I'm sure he can hinge the pin section to the bottom and create the "clam shell" look you are wanting.
Good luck !

This product needs to have at minimum 6" (155 mm for you Europeans) of stake depth or you're going to have disappointed customers no matter how it looks, or how it's packaged.

The average consumer will not care about having (4) of these units nicely snuggled together. People who buy this are going to throw it in their beach bag and be on their way. I can't imagine someone cleaning up on the beach and carefully packaging their beach towel stakes away in some sort of compact packaging. I'm not in marketing, but I do know that nobody will care about how neatly packaged something is if it doesn't work.

Alvaro:

I'm fascinated with all the very cool and creative entries so far (great job everyone!!). The posted concepts have evolved to more of an aesthetic rather than the functionality. If one of the major design criteria is to secure the corners of the towel to the surface of dry sand, a simple weight is the most logical. So "Advandes" concept is good if it's weighted to at least 1/2 kilo but, this poses an issue if transporting excess weight (at least 2 kilos) in your beach bag. Now the "stake" concept will work very well only if its length is long enough (min 8-10") and driven into the sand substantially so, the length criteria you wish (like 4" or so), will not work properly unless the sand is moist or wet. Magnets are cool but you gotta have strong ones,...and micro gadgets may be compromised when nearby. Also you have an iron grain collection issue on the magnets after awhile of use. So for the compact size and ease of manufacturing that you're after for your product, I suggest a weight type anchor rather than a stake and, if weight is and issue, go with a longer length stake to keep it simple.

These are just constructive criticisms and merely opinions from someone who has lived on the beach all his life;)...

I will try to resubmit something trendy if I have the time.
