Suspended carbon fibre hammock bath

TIME REMAINING: 20 days, 8 hours
Description:
As part of my home renovation I would like to create a stunning and comfortable carbon fibre hammock bath, which will be suspended by two wall mounted supports.

The bath will be manufactured by taking the 3D CAD model created by this design contest and creating a wooden blank using a CNC machine. The wooden blank will then be wrapped in carbon fibre cloth for strength, waterproofing and aesthetics.

I have some dimensions, weight specifications and other requirements such as the location of the bath filler, bath waste, water pipes and head rest.
Wants:
- Cost
- Time to complete the 3D CAD model
- If anyone has structural design experience then this will be advantageous
- If anyone has experience of carbon fibre structures then this will be advantageous
Software:
  1. .3DM format CAD model
Additional Information
The PDF attached provides an example of the type of bath I am creating but is only a guide and the bath the winner creates may or may not closely follow its design ideas. The approximate dimensions are 200cm long by 70cm wide but I don't have an approximation of the height.

#3 Gondola Bath by Steersman
Hi
When I saw the images, I immediately thought - Gondola (see image below)
https://goo.gl/images/YQHH2D
The attached sketch is the idea that stemmed from this. The shape is designed to give the impression of the Venetian gondola, but with the compromise that it must be practical for both bathing, and cleaning.
The design also includes two upright wooden supports to simulate the mooring piles, that a gondola would be tied up to when not in use. The attachments can be a rope or a metal ring.
Also to note, in my sketch I have just shown the bath attached to the 'piles' at the top, but this will cause the bath to swing when the user is climbing in and out.
If this is not acceptable, then we can add in an extra attachement point at the bottom.
I hope you like it, I would certainly enjoy the challenge of creating it. I have designed a boat hull some years ago so I am familiar with the technique of creating such a shape successfully
If you would like me to create this as a 3D CAD model, the charge will be £240.00
I can also get the prototype built here in the UK, but i am aware that this might prove an expensive option because of the transportation costs to the USA.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Best regards

Hi JimboPenguin, first welcome, and thanks for providing us designers with another challenge. I've submitted a concept design for you to look at so please give me any feedback. However, and I mean this in the most respectful way possible, for $200 you will in no way get a full manufacture ready design from a designer worth working with. Please consider that the cost of the bath in the PDF was $35000 dollars and you only want to pay the designer $200? If a concept is all you are after, and an idea for shape and form, $200 is fine and well done for prepaying as this makes a big difference. I would suggest the best way for you to move your project forward is to choose a designer from the concept designs created from this competition and then work with that designer in the future on a more realistic pay scheme.

This is of course just my opinion and I will continue to follow, and contribute, to your project.

Best of luck

I have updated my project in response to the comments you have all made:
1) I have increased the prize from $150 to $250
2) I have increased the duration from 7d to 21d to give time for more people to enter the contest

Hi Jim,
It is very interesting contest. Would like to join.
Is it possible to extend the contest if you are not in a hurry.

Because most of us working full time for some company and come here on free time. To make good design concept it will need to do considerable amount of sketches. Then select one of those themes and improve it. Source matching accessory components from reliable suppliers and finalize the concept takes more than a week.

If you can extend it up to 2-3 weeks, it may help get more design concepts. So you can have handful of options to make the final choice.

Thanks,

JimboPenguin

Good morning Adriano,

Many thanks for your initial design entry. It is already very good and I am amazed by how rapidly and beautifully you have drafted it! I have a few edits that I would like:
1) If you look at the picture on page 2 you will see that the bath is quite a lot deeper and therefore can hold more water.
2) I will be used a different mounting system to the bath shown in the PDF; I will have two tubes parallel to the floor (perpendicular to the wall), which will replace the two wall mounting flaps/flanges (sorry - my engineering vocabulary isn't very good at this point). Are you able to design a mounting point/receiver for the tubes at each end to replace the flanges and try to blend them in with the overall design aesthetic?
3) How thick is the bath and is the thickness constant throughout? I believe the example bath probably gets thicker in the middle but I'm not 100% sure.
4) Do you have any experience with engineering and can you advise on the carbon fibre construction in terms of the number of layers, areas that will need reinforcement, etc?

Yours
Jim

My first project on here so I have literally no idea what is a reasonable prize value. I'm open to suggestions.
Mon, 28 Nov 2016 20:50:01 +0000
I would agree, increase the contest amount for better quality submittals. The price you have is more for conceptual instead of production ready
Mon, 28 Nov 2016 20:23:18 +0000
Hi,

I could help you with you design.
I design aircraft carbon fiber structures for a living and my expertise is composite design.
I think that for $120 USD you will not get anything worth producing but if you really want to speak with real experts, let me know.

Good luck!

PS other requirements:
1) the headrest will integrate a low profile, wide spreading bath filler that will not only fill the bath but will also warm the backrest so that when the user enters the bath it is already comfortably warm.
2) The bath will be suspended approximately 15cm off the floor and water will exit the bath at the bottom and flow into a drain on the bathroom floor.
3) The bath will be suspended by two metal brackets that attach to the bathroom wall.
4) The bath will be required to support a human weighing up to 150kg and up to 100kg of water.

Hi,

where can we find the dimensions and other requirements?
I looked to the attachment but that's just publicity...

Adjustable Serving Tupperware
In theory, this is very basic. Although I am just a law student and by no means an engineer of any sort. My idea is to create a tupperware that has slits in a grid like form on the bottom and sides. Additionally there would be slits under the lid. With the grid-like slits, one would be able to put inserts in order to separate there food. with the insert going into the bottom, sides and the lid, there would be a nice seal from any liquids or foods mixing with the others. Obviously, the point of the grid is to be able to create different sized servings and adjust them from bouncing around. Basically, one could put a perfect compact cup of rice, another for veggies etc. The preserving tupperware current on the market do not allow this and one has to purchase a thousand of them. My vision is for it to be able 10 inches in length with a 5 inch witch and about 2.5 inches tall. The top of the tupperware and lid should look similar to your standard rubbermaid tupperware. the walls of the tupperware should not be less or more than 90 degrees. The corners and need to be rounded. The slits them selves should not be to shallow, for that would defeat the purpose of them. My estimation is that they would be about .5 centimeters. Because of the slits, the bottom and sides could/maybe/should form a ridge like surface. (think of ruffles) Lastly, the ridges, or slits should be continuous, at least in my mind around the entirety of the tupperware, which means the lid will need to account for vertical ridges along the walls of the tupperware and still be able to seal it. Although I will not prepay, being the cautious man of law that I am, payment will be given upon the winner being chosen. AND, in the event that my price is significantly low balled and outrageous I will increase it if no one in their right mind would accept it. Thank you.
Tyler Food Truck Park
We have a vacant lot that we are planning to launch as a food truck park. We need design ideas for the layout of the food trucks (6 trucks). We need to figure out best method for getting trucks in and out of the property each day. Each truck needs to have a pad for parking with electric service. We also need to design an outdoor seating area for the food truck park patrons. Covered seating is a must. Picnic tables and sunblock structure with ceiling fans. Also, we need a small structure on the premises for a management office for the park (very small - one room), a small cabana style opening for a bar and two restrooms attached for guests. We'd like the perimeter of the food truck park to be enclosed with only one way in and out for guests and of course and in and out land for trucks. The park will be on the two adjoining lots shown on the attached survey and elevation. Please draw to scale!! We don't have any set-back limitations.
Chargepill
Solving for a few problems here: 1. iPhone charger cord fraying-due mostly to yanking and bending • yanking- unplugging incorrectly, from the middle of the cord rather than the very end closest to the phone (hence the thumb imprint on the device to encourage proper use) • bending (strain relief)- when people charge their phones, they plug in from a number of different angles at different times that can cause stress on the cord from bending it 90 degrees right at the point where the cable leaves the connector 2. distinct charger identification- different colors, mixed and matched to tell your charger apart from others if using the pill 3. different models of chargers- this device should fit standard apple iphone 5 and 4, 4s chargers, but we want it to be as broadly applicable as possible to cheaper knockoff cords that are size differently as well as other phone chargers like micro usb, etc.
Bonadikombo Home
Use current hand drawn sketch as a general template. Convert to CAD, adding a foyer at the main entrance/door and toilet (with windows) off of the foyer before Living Room #1. Provide separation of some sort between the foyer and Living Room #1. Relative room sizes should be similar but exact dimensions are not required. Natural lighting of all areas is important. No HVAC systems. To be build in tropical Africa. 2D required, 3D will be nice. Feel free to use colors if needed.
Hot Dog Trailer
I need a CGI visualisation of a hot dog trailer that is signed wrapped with company design (which will be provided) to go into a brochure. The trailer must look like the photo of trailer attached, but with a longer body plus a longer and wider serving hatch.
