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

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.
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.
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.

300 sqm 3D floorplan sketch
I have a land and I'm planning to make a 4 floor building for a residential purpose . The design should be a modern style apartment .the land size is 700 sqm but the allowed space for building is 300 sqm . I need to see 2 different designs as this : First design : The floor should consists of 2 apartments , first apartment to have 3 bedroom and the second apartment to have 2 bedroom . Both apartments must have at least 1 master bedroom , a living room and a hall with setting and dining area . I suggest the size to be 170 for the 3 bedroom and 130 for the 2 bedroom . There should be built in wardrobes . Second Design : Should consist of 2 apartments , first apartment to be a 3 bedroom apartment with all masters and a small clothing room in one of the master rooms. it should have also a big hall , living and children playing room if possible . The size of the apartment should not exceed 230 - 240 sqm . The other studio apartment should not exceed 60-70 sqm . I have attached 3d designs that I really liked but it doesn't fit my land plan . I also have attached an autocad floorplan that has been mad by one of the local designers but it didn't meet my expectations but I attached it for your understanding . Please note that the ground floor apartments should have 2 Entrance , one entrance is the Main stairs entrance that leads to other top floors and the elevator and the other one is a side entrance for each apartment in the ground level . You may notice that the setback area is shown in one of the designs attached which should be mined .
