Description:
Looking for an engineer that has experience with light guides or light pipes used with LEDs, and that can design a few simple light guides for an electronic device. 3 LEDs - red, green, blue will feed the light pipe. the other end of the light pipe will be visible to the user thorugh a cutout in the enclosure. the user will see this end of the light pipe, which is 2 strips each at .2 wide x 2" long. there may be some curvature to these 2" long strips (maybe a radius of 2.5"). when the red LED is on the strips will light up red. same for green, etc. need to make sure the lighting is continuous (not brighter at one end than the other). Proven experience with LIght pipes is required. $100 for initial sketch and background proving that this design will work. Further work would then be given to winner to develop the concept into a injection molded part. Good Luck and I look forward to working with you.
Wants:
light pipe design must be able to be converted into an injection molded light guide with a cost of less than 1.00 per part at 1000pc lot size. needs to be assembly sketch with lightpipes and LEDs, and part sketches for each light pipe. see attached pg2. sketch with dimensions, material, and engineering proof (design guides, other similar products, prior experiences, etc) that the concept will work. Bonus points will be given to designs turned in by 9/21/2016
Software:
  1. SolidWorks
Additional Information
Any design must inlcude the following for consideration: 1) the concept must include sketch/model of the actual light guides with dimensions, and any surface treatments etc. and sketch/model of the assembly showing how they are held to circuit board and housing.

I would recommend a light pipe that lights up the entire Square that company name is on, and then company name is just pad printed in Black Ink. Also, you are correct. There will be a mute button on the printed circuit board. At this point we can use any button. Feel free to recommend any button and light combination.

The company name must be one continuous opening, so letters "A", "O', "D" etc. are not feasible as a cut-out for the lightpipe on the top housing.

What feature on the board actuates "mute on", "mute-off". Typically a button such as this is a separate molded part with a small light pipe inside along with a spring and features on the housing to accommodate it.

Outdoor TV Enclosure
Design an outdoor TV Enclosure for 32" flat screen TV to be used outdoor such as backyard, pool, or cafeteria. - Inside the enclosure will hold flat screen TV with dimension of 30" x 18" x 2" (W x H x D). Dept can be extended if needed. - TV must be safely secure inside the enclosure when not attach to the VESA Wall mount - Must be able to mount with VESA Wall mount standard of 200mm x 200mm - Water resistant but does not need to be completely waterproofed - Have a cooling system, either ventilation for airflow (Fans) or cool down liquid (Freon) - A sound bar will be located in the bottom of the enclosure - Would be nice if the enclosure has feet that can be pushed in or pulled out when place on the ground to keep it balance.
SolidWorks Simple Box with 2 Cords - Freelance 3D Designer Contest
Keep the dimensions of the box exactly as they are in the 2D version (they are in imperial but can be changed to metric in the solidworks file) I'm looking for a clean 3D Solidworks file of the exterior with the 2 cords that can pull out almost to look like an assembly drawing in Solidworks. I'm not looking to get detailed on what the product is or how it will work, but the top port is a Micro USB, and the bottom port is a Lightning USB. The notches on both are for fingernails and a cord will pull out. There is a very small power button on the bottom and 4 LED lights on the back side that I will update soon. I'm looking for conceptual nice looking design to use for sale of the product.

A complex helix for visualising a pedagogic hypothesis
The spiral of learning (Kolb & Kolb) is a simple helix visualising the learner's progress. I need to visualise a more complex spiral. Turns on this helix are circular. Each turn represents an interaction between teacher and learner. This helix contains 1 grand turn. A grand turn contains at least 3 smaller turns. This creates a turn complex. Each turn achieves a small or large rise on the z axis depending on the diameter of the turns on the x and y axes. In elevation view the turn complex should have a stepped appearance due to the presence of the smaller turns, with the lowest steps at left and the highest at right. The idea to be communicated is that the larger turns contain at least 3-5 smaller turns. Each turn achieves a small increase in z-height as the learner exits the turn, like freeway traffic using a cloverleaf junction. Multiple interactive turns aggregate to a large gain in z-height. In the attached illustration, the largest loop should be understood as not a part of the visualisation. I would like to see two variations of the design: (1) smaller turns ranged on outside of grand turn diameter (2) smaller turns ranged on inside of grand turn diameter.
