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:

The pin we are looking for should be easy to use (no advance mechanish). We want you to send us new ideas, until 7th of February

#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.
Regards,
Tejas

#20 "the pin" by benito
This is old idea base from the old fashion clothes pin. I reappropriated it to clamp beach towels and pin it down on the sand, hence "the pin". This should keep the beach towel from flying off. There is a compression sleeve for extra grip.

#40 corkscrew approach to beach towel pin design by Jeremy Benjamin
This is a different take on my previous entry - another version of the corkscrew idea; in this scenario, the wings that open to become the handle the user twists to drive the corkscrew into the ground, those same components are also transform to become the shell or carrying case enclosing the corkscrew when secured in its not-in-use position. The towel itself is held under an elastic band suspended over a crater in the top surface. This is explained via illustrations in a PDF document attached to this entry.

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.

Shop Display
I do not have experience with this but I need to create a small in store display that represents my brand and relays information on how our personalization/ monogramming process works. This is something that you would find in boutiques sitting on a shelf or small table. (around 13" wide and 20" tall) There needs to be a section that can hold a set of plastic sheet cards (about 8.5 x 8.5 inches) that will have monogramming font examples. The customer would use these plexiglass sheets and hover them over the actual products that are in the store to help them visualize what their monogram will look like. It would also have an area that can show a single representative product that can be updated. I am thinking either a shelf where the store can place a small item such as a luggage tag or small cosmetic bag that is already stamped for viewing (no larger than 8" x 5" x 3: The item needs to be free standing and able to be easily shipped.
Toy siren whistle modeling in Autodesk Inventor
Existing pneumatic mouth-blown siren whistles need a large volume of air at a fairly high pressure in order to produce a noise. Project Goals: Create a siren whistle model assembly (rotor, stator(s), housing) in Autodesk Inventor that that I can 3D print (I have Inventor myself, so I can modify part/assembly constraints and export STL for 3D printing) and I can experiment with the effect of changing constraints such as: different part/assembly sizes, number of rotor vanes, angle of rotor vanes, position and number of stator openings, etc. Ideally, the provided model with the default constraints produces a siren noise that uses less volume and pressure when blown through than existing products (such as those depicted at http://www.alibaba.com/trade/search?fsb=y&IndexArea=product_en&CatId=&SearchText=whistle+lips and on attached image). The model should also be moldable and assemble-able using conventional plastic production manufacturing methods. Provide constrained Inventor files upon completion. It is anticipated that reduction in size of the existing approach should produce the desired result. Higher pitched frequency than that produced by current commercial versions is OK. I've also included 2 photos of a: 1) stator/retention element (with round holes), 2) rotor and 3) stator/housing (red) from a "lip whistle" siren toy.
