#1 Gravity Step by KP HARISANKAR
Please download all the attachments and open the CAT PRODUCT file. I have provided a draft angle of 10 degree, so it can be easily removed from the mould and is stackable. I have designed the model in line with the design considerations for die making. Central sprue can be provided and 6 runners can be provided symmetrically to the six edges for uniform flow of the material used in injection moulding. Stiffeners are provided at the bottom to increase the strength of the model. PP+ABS can be used for injection moulding. The wall thickness is 10mm, so it can be easily loaded up to 150kg.

The plastic model can support more than 400kg and can be stacked, 8cm for each additional piece. The design is based on the logo, and its ability to be injection molded with the right thickness and exit angles. The model can be dimensioned to support a range of weight, and the thicknesses and angles to use the minimum material needed to produce

Could we get some kind of rating on our current designs so we know what direction to go and possibly resubmit a different one?

It is your preference where you put the logo.
If it could be incorporated into the top then this may look good, yes.
Tue, 25 Oct 2016 21:26:25 +0000
It would help if you could provide an illustrator or vector format logo. We won't be able to design the logo in the plastic with out it.

It doesn't necessarily have to be round. This is up to the designer.
It should be both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Dual sided Shampoo/Conditioner bottle
We are a new venture specializing in the creation of dual sided hair care products. Our first product is a double sided shampoo-conditioner bottle. The product is eco-friendly and saves money and space compared to buying separate bottles of shampoo and conditioner. We are looking for a concept/prototype design in 3D. We have attached a product design sketch and photos describing the two sided bottle and twist caps.
Macbook Pro case design
The case will be 2 parts. A top and a bottom. We'll use this design as the basis for a case we plan to manufacture. See attachments for dimensions and measurements. The design should be able to easily scale to fit both the 13" and 15" models, but the 15" is our priority. You must have a retina Macbook to determine the exact curve of the case and to make sure there are holes on the sides near the bottom for the vents (http://images.anandtech.com/reviews/mac/rMBP13/DSC_8944.jpg) These cases are both similar to what we're looking for: http://www.amazon.com/Speck-Products-SeeThru-MacBook-SPK-A2411/dp/B00937DLE8/ http://www.amazon.com/keyboard-15-inch-MacBook-15-4-inch-Display/dp/B008NSA3OY/ Any of the following file formats are acceptable: .stl .3ds .dae .blend
Self-heating Tumbler Design
We are a new venture specializing in the creation of Self-Heating Tumblers. Our tumblers (travel mugs) are quality made with precision and self-heat themselves by the press of a button. The button initiate a reaction inside the tumbler chambers, causing the interior to heat up. We are looking for a concept/prototype design in 3D. We have attached design specifications and photos describing the product.
Redefined Plastic Case for Medical Product
There's an important medical product out there prescribed to many patients, that people are using make-shift cases (often times, pockets). These patients need a sleek case that they can fit in their pockets, sitting about the size of the palm of a female's hand, created with a thoughtful design that also opens and closes functionally, smart, and beautifully, and most importantly, will protect their product... (this case could be used for several devices, so for now the product intended to go in the case will remain undisclosed). specs: - overal case body: APPROX L: 5cm, W: 5cm, H: 2cm There is a lot of room for flexibility in these dimensions, so please feel free to play with them... design and engineering is most important, exact dimensions can be adjusted later. - size of magnets for closing mechanism: 1/4" diameter, 1/32" thick - So as NOT to limit a great design out there, I will not hold it against the winning design, but please keep in mind that this product will need to be converted from CAD to STL.
2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner bottle with a pump
The goal of this project is to find the most efficient engineering solution for the pump in a hard plastic bottle. The bottle itself is going to be made of hard plastic or glass, so it will not be possible to squeeze the bottle itself to squeeze the shampoo or conditioner out. If the shampoo is required to be pumped out, the bottle will have to be tilted with the shampoo side down and pumped air will help the shampoo to flow out. So the size of the pump have to be enough to provide enough pressure for the liquid to be pushed. We don't want people pressing 10 times on the button before they see any effect. The pump will have to be an air pump as it will work for both chambers with different liquids and they can't mix. The pump will either twist to the chamber that requires pumping or the 'locking button' will unlock the inlet that will allow the air to be pumped in OR another innovative solution offered by engineers/product designers. PLEASE NOTE: There must be something preventing the shampoo and conditioner to flow out of chambers, some sort of valve or another engineering solution. For example if the inlet for shampoo will be unlocked while the shampoo side is facing up, the shampoo should not leak out. The manufacturing cost is a very important factor. The less parts will need to be manufactured to assemble the product the better. Simplicity and cost effectiveness of the design is a key. If the design submitted is exactly what is needed then the designer will be asked to help us to finalise the product until it is in manufacturing. Please use software that would allow us to print a 3d model.
