Description:This consumer product is an accessory that provides enhanced usability to mobile phones and tablets.
The latest design of our "Band" is two parts:
1. Round Base that attaches to the back of the phone (made from a low-friction polymer like polyethylene)
2. A "band" that overlaps with the Round Base (1) and rotates/spins around it. (made from polyethylene over-molded with rubber to provide elasticity to the top band part)
The rubber part of the band elongates so that an individual's finger can be placed underneath the band and above the base. The elasticity part is important so it can accommodate different finger sizes.
The product allows users to hold the phone more securely.
Our current challenge is the design of the "Band" (2). This is where we need the help.
As shown in the attached STL file for the Band, there are two circles on either side of the flap that holds the finger down. These circle were put there to provide some added elasticity to the rubber piece.
While it does functionally work well, the current design does not look durable or very elegant.
We'd like to rethink the band design to make it look incredibly user-friendly, allowing the band to stretch upright to accommodate different finger sizes, while being functionally superior to the current design.
Designer will need to provide STL files for my prototyping company to be able to work with.
1. the most aesthetically pleasing design
2. One that considers usability (user sliding in their finger and feeling secure)
3. Understand the implications of tooling design -- we don't want to have to make an injection molding tool that is massively expensive due to a complicated design.

Racing drone (quadcopter) from notes to CAD and 3D model
Your task is to draft a mini racing drone from my design specifications. The drone itself will consist of two pieces of moulded carbon fibre: - bottom hull - hood Key features of the drone: - two piece construction with interlocking lip - tube arms (16mm outer diameter, 12mm inner diameter) - fit 6" diameter propeller (152.4mm) - 16x19mm standard motor mounting - fit standard HS1177 camera with adjustable camera angle from 0° - 70° of tilt - fit standard flight controller circuit board (30.5mm square mounting holes on the bottom) - 4mm thick at motor mount - 3-4mm thickness of hull THE ATTACHED ZIP FILE CONTAINS SKETCHUP FILES WITH DIMENSIONAL DATA, PROTOTYPE IMAGES AND IMAGES TO USE AS A REFERENCE Deliverables: - Technical CAD model of drone components - Inverse CAD model for the moulds for both pieces - 3D renders Bonus points for: - finite element analysis to highlight structural weaknesses and suggest improvements - include motors, propeller and other electronics in the 3D renders
Hi all, thanks for checking out my contest! I am involved with a company that is looking to receive some entries for a "prototype" electric unicycle. If you aren't familiar let me give you a brief background. Remember the hoverboards last xmas?? The electric unicycle works on essentially the same principle (upside down pendulum theory) to achieve self balancing capability. The current offerings on the market just don't cut it, the plastics are basically thrown together around the requirements of a build, rather than incorporating the necessary components into the design for a smooth finish. I would like the final product to be somewhat futuristic/prototypish looking, maybe a bit sporty. You can get a feeling for whats out there by doing a google search for "electric unicycle". Integral to the design there are 3 requirements. 1.) Obviously the plastic fairing will need to have a cavity for the wheel, but in addition, it will need to subtly include a space for lipo batteries, (doesnt have to be in any particular shape however), and also must include spot for a pcb control board. Both of these items arent excessively large, the PCB is about 4X3 inches and the batteries are about 5X5X1 (but can be reconfigured). 2.) I would also like to incorporate into my design a headlight, and a tail light if possible, but most concerned with head light. Would also like to leave the option open to include small bluetooth speakers, however these would not take very much space at all. 3.) Finally, this design will need to have a retractable handle for balance when getting on/off.
The ROBERT project
We would like a fresh set of eyes on our device ROBERT, a rehabilitation robot that release healthcare workers of heavy and continuous lifting which can cause physical strain and pain in the back, loin, wrists and shoulders. We aim to optimise rehabilitation through more frequently and prolonged exercises which can result in fewer complications and a faster retrieval of a patient’s strength. See more at www.myrobert.com. The current look is a mixture of many components comming together which does not result in a uniform design. Further we whish to incorporate a new robot arm, made by the company KUKA, the LBR iiwa version, https://www.kuka.com/en-de/products/robot-systems/industrial-robots/lbr-iiwa. This will later come in a MEDtech version, similar in use but in white and with a small change to the interface base. CAD data of the industrial version can be used for this design, change is that wiring will come out of the bottom of the medtech version and not the sides like the industrial version, so completely round in base instead of the small square thing on the side of the industrial version (so no visible wires). The industrial version can be downloaded here: https://www.kuka.com/en-de/services/downloads. It is the "LBR iiwa 14 R820" found under division "KUKA Robotics".
Where there's muck there's brass
An alternative to picking up dog dropping with plastic bags. A cheap, easy to build, bio-degradeable design. It should, with a minimum of moving parts, (ideally 1-2 piece cardboard structure), pick up and enclose droppings. Should also include built in handle (reasonably distanced from holding section) Simplicity is key. As will need to be able to produce cheaply in large volumes. MUST BE MASS PRODUCEABLE for cost in the region of $1-2.
