Description:We are designing a thick gauge aluminum mailbox (0.080” aluminum (2024 or similar) front and back; ¼” (6061 or similar) lid). We are having problems finding an off-the-shelf hinge for the lid that meets our evaluation criteria (below). Lid is a thick, flat piece of aluminum, no bends. Final product will be powder-coated.
Wants:1. slow-close hinge action required but doesn't force lid to "stay-open".
2. hinge should operate between -30c and +40c, corrosion resistant, aluminum.
3. Be able to affix to our 1/4" thick aluminum lid with either blind-tapped holes or weld in place (assuming heat from weld doesn't damage hinge).
4. be an elegant solution, requiring minimum manufacturing procedures.
5. Lid is angled down to front at 65 degrees from back of box - hinge needs to operate within full 115 degree range.
6. Hinge can't bump lid into wall or box when open - box will be mounted with 0.5" bump-out from wall
7. be a cost-sensitive solution to help keep overall costs down
8. off-the-shelf solutions preferred

Dwarven Forge Bracelet
A bracelet design to complement our long standing line of Dungeons and Dragons/fantasy rpg terrain. Please view our website -- dwarvenforge.com -- to develop a sense for our product. You can also look at our recent Kickstarter campaign -- http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1745470388/1826778276?token=2a7841d2 (see "Game Tiles" on kickstarter.com). I'd start with a bangle, probably with one main charm, a small crystal and a small charm with our logo -- kind of like "Alex & Ani" level of complexity, but for gamers. The main charm should probably be metal. The bracelets are for women, gamers or partners of gamers.
Spa/health club annex
Convert a 2D, basic floor plan of spa/health facility into a 3D floor plan of spa/health facility. The project will require some creative adjustments to accentuate the look and feel of the facility to align with a spa-like environment. The addition of furniture items typical to spa/health settings will be required. This is a concept project and dimensions may change in the future as the project develops. The final objective/goal is a 3D model that can be used to confirm final dimensions, details, and other information with a larger stakeholder group as the project develops to a final stage of execution.
Solidworks Car model
I am looking for someone to model in solidworks a replica of a car already on the market. I like super cars and classic cars! The file needs to be somewhat editable in solidworks and renderable in keyshot. The contest is quite open ended, the more detail the better.

Alfred's Mic's Design Contest
Alfred's Microphones wants to create the worlds first Modular Microphone. The goal is to create a condenser microphone with interchangeable capsules and circuitry for different studio recording applications. Design requirements: 1. Capsule/ head piece must be removable. 2. Circuitry must be removable. 3. All removable parts must be easy and quick to assemble. 3. All removable components must be lockable onto the microphone body for stability and durability. 4. standard male XLR connection for base 5.Circuitry isn't being designed here, just the process to easily interchange the interior circuitry and head piece/capsule without any rewiring involved for the microphone user.
