Flying car Design

in 3D Modeling Design held by Illia C.
Contest Closed
Design goal - to develop a 3D model of exterior, interior and ergonomics of a flying car. The result is the 3D model and rendering able to be opened in SolidWorks (its, stp).
Development stages:
— development of art-design, graphic files;
— development of surface model of one design selected, stp files;
As aerodynamic scheme it was selected a quadrocopter with four lifting rotors. Payload (a person) is above the rotors out of the coverage area of the rotor. The car has four wheels.
Geometrical dimensions::
Overall dimensions 2947x2973x1380
Thrust developing system :
Tractor rotors, two-bladed are enclosed in ring. Under each rotor there is an electromotor, which is connected to the rotor with a system of clutches and bearing blocks. The rotor diameter is 1250mm, the external diameter of the ring - 1316mm, the ring height - 180mm. The distance between the rotors: right - left - 1654 mm, the distance between the front and rear rotor 1630 mm.
Placement of a person on the board:
The position of the mass center of the person must be as close as possible to the mass center of the aircraft. The center of mass is at the intersection of the diagonals of a square which corners are on the centers of rotors rotation. As it was mentioned above the man is placed above the rotors and must be out of the rotor coverage area not to be hurt in case of blade breaking apart. The person should be placed in a sitting position with stretched forward legs.
The rear drive
Control via the front wheels.
The distance between the right and the left wheel: 933mm
The distance between the front and the rear wheel: 1962mm
There is a fine line between beautiful design and low weight, the wheels should look harmoniously, but it should be remembered that the increase of geometrical parameters leads to weight gain, which is critical in this case.
First of all it is l the car and all the features on the car should be observed.
The car must have all elements, such as front and rear headlights, turn signals, front and rear bumpers are possible, rearview mirror (camera). Radiator enclosure is missing.
Doors (canopy) should provide a convenient access and landing, it is necessary to provide luggage storage.
In General, the design should be made in a modern style with using of modern trends in the automotive industry.
Inside the car there should be enough space to place the driver - pilot. The position of the seat should be fixed, all controls should be in a convenient and intuitive clear place. The view should be complete forward, 20 degrees down and 40 up. The side stands should not interfere the side view, also it is provided an overview of the left and right back about 120 degrees. The adjustment for the pilot height should be implemented using the movement controls.
The instrument panel has several displays. The controls have been mentioned above.
Provide illumination in the cabin.

SFF Vertical Case (mini ITX)
Hi :) This contest is for a small vertical mini-ITX computer case with the following specs/requirements: - Aluminium (3mm thickness for single parts like panels or beams) - MUST BE PRODUCIBLE WITH CNC (one side milling) - EYE CATCHING FRONT PANEL - something like the Mac Pro but different ;) - All panels must be liftable - The panels must be fixed with an easy mechanism yet align correctly - Screws, pins and so on should be stock/standard parts only - Footprint should not exceed height: 400mm width: 200mm length: 300mm - Airflow is important and should be front to back and bottom to top - Panels should accommodate this airflow (holes or other pattern) - Front accept 2x 120-140mm fans - Back should accept 2x 120-140mm fans or a 240mm radiator - Bottom or top should accept at least one fan - SFX, SFX-L or ATX PSU - CPU cooling via water block or radiator+fan - 3 slot GPU with 315mm max. length - i/O can be mounted vertical (up/down), to the back, use a second cover to keep a clean look of the top and so on... you're free to choose Visual style: NZXT H1 meets Mac Pro :)

Cool House Interleaving Humanity with Nature
Our project is an energy saving initiative that cools places of human habitation by retrofitting them with living trees. We require a 3D model that represents an apartment building 3 stories high that is overshadowed by a large living gazebo-like construct of the kind depicted in the photo below. Cooling is afforded by virtue of the shading of the foliage of the tree that stands above the building as well as by the flow of air that is the result of the tree's evapotranspiration. The design should be esthetic yet simple. The only vital details are those that bring across the recognition that what is depicted is a commercial or residential building overshadowed by four legged tree. Deadline: April 14th 2021
Personal and Portable Security Device
Hi Everyone, Thanks very much for checking out our contest. We greatly appreciate your interest. If you have any questions or want to see if you are on the right track, please send us questions or check in often. We will likely have continued work opportunities for the winners in the future. We are looking for 3D design for a personal security device. We are looking for your best and most creative designs for a sleek, modern device that is portable so you can throw it in your purse or briefcase but at you would be happy to have displayed on a shelf. The device should be around the size of a 12-ounce Coke can or a bookend. It should be free standing so it can be place on a table or a shelf. The design should include a camera lens, either 360 degree on top of the device or incorporated into the device. It will include a Passive Infrared sensor, speakers, microphone slot, and strobe light. On the back, it should have a slot for a usb-c cable for charging, a power button and either a four-button key pad or a touch screen for an unlocking pattern. We also need it to be durable so it could take a fall or potentially a throw across a room. Also, we think black may be a good color but we are open to suggestions. We are not looking for the wiring on the internals (although the inside should be hollow to allow for these), we are simply looking for the exterior design. If you have ideas on the inside, we will happily review. We have included our initial prototype design for reference. We have moved away from that design. We want you to think about what you would like to see on the table next to you that makes you feel safe but at the same time really catches your eye. We have also attached some pictures of current home security devices. We do not want any copies of these but they can provide you with some reference. The logo is unnecessary but include if you like. Thanks very much and good luck!
Revolutionary Meditation Bench
A standard meditation bench made of wood gets a makeover. We are looking to create a fully-adjustable, lightweight, travel version of a wooden meditation bench for manufacture via injection molding (plastic). Here is a reference for what it usually looks like (not what we are making): The bench consists of 2 legs, of the same size, 7.5 inches tall. Atop is a main sitting piece, which is at right angles to the legs and is 18 inches long and 7 inches deep. All parts are ½ inch thick, or thinner. The bench needs to be able to support the weight of an adult. The main sitting piece (piece “A” in the sketch) needs to be rotational such that it can be tilted forward in order to create an angled seating platform. This adjustment is to conform to the seating angle of the meditator to create comfortable sitting position. The piece must lock out once in place at the desired setting, in order to provide stability while sitting on it (aka it does not move). The legs must also be retractable, such that they fold in towards the main sitting piece in some manner, in order to make the bench small and practical for travelling or storage. When folded, teethe assembly should ideally be no more than 1 inch thick.
