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.

@Michael
As long as you understand the carbon fiber fabrication process using epoxy resins with female molds you can adjust your design further. Most of the designs here are not possible to fabricate just as it is. All need to be further refined. I hope you can get it done. Even wood block also can make by slicing it and fixing them together.
@Jim
If you remember that I mentioned long ago, even if you have perfect design you won't be able to get it done in one shot. Based on experience I know that. With experienced fabricator and with your chosen designers support I believe you can get it done. There is no magic in this.
@Cadcrowd
I have seen this kind of criticisms when someone disappoint with his design. Thats your problem. Its time to stop this bad attitude.

Hysterical comments. I have to agree though, the buyer needs to do their research when selecting a "winner". Lots of people just throw a design together without thinking about how the product will function or how it be manufactured. The buyer gets screwed, the designer gets the money, and the winning design never sees the light of day because it can't be built. So a lesson to the buyers out there - know what you're wanting to produce. Do your research on the designer before picking a "winner". It ultimately makes this website look bad when "designers" come here and know nothing about the manufacturing process.

Tell me a reason why it is not manufacturable, if you mean the wood underneath you're right not economic to simply be an idea, but the shape of the bathtub why not be manufacturable? I think the purpose of the website of the camaraderie and competition to defame some designers like you, if indeed my plan lacks construction I would like an answer by arguments as mechanical engineers, not as designers.

When you figure out the one you bought is not manufacturable feel free to come back and buy one that is.

Unreal. The buyer selects a design depicting a 300 pound block of wood that will cost more than the tub.
A photoshop picture wins again.

General comment to everyone - thank you for your designs, there are some very interesting and creative ideas coming up! Sorry I haven't been responding to people's messages, i'm travelling for the whole of December so I'm not online very often. I should be able to select the winner pretty quickly after the contest ends. Again, any experience in structural engineering and carbon manufacturing will be helpful as I'm particularly weak in these areas.

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

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

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.
Design of a smart speaker for users with speech and motor difficulties
With Nuvoic Home, we aim to build a prototype of the world’s first smart speaker for users with speech and motor difficulties, allowing them to interact and communicate independently with others and their surroundings via their own, unique voice. In this EU-funded project (https://voiceitt.com/nuvoic-project), imec partners up with the Israel-based VoiceItt to incorporate their state-of-the-art dysarthric speech recognition software into a smart speaker. The goal is to (a) investigate which technological possibilities are available by contemporary standards and (b) adapt the device following a design thinking philosophy to ensure a match with the target group. People with speech and motor difficulties need to be able to interact with the smart speaker via their own unique voice. Auditory feedback is given via an incorporated speaker. Visual feedback can be given via a LED-ring which resides on the PCB of the microphone array (see further for details). They often have a secondary user which can help them in assisting functions such as installation of the device and one-time setup steps. All things concerning authentication, registration and others where a screen is needed, will be done on a separate accompanying device and are thus out of scope of this design contest. For the first prototype, we have yet to decide on the design of the speaker enclosure. The main components have been identified in a first iteration of the project, with exception of the specific touchscreen. In attach you find some personas we created for the intended users (primary group) and the assisting persons (secondary group) By organizing this design contest, we hope to receive several possible designs for the smart speaker that (a) allow to integrate the components specified below and (b) fit well with the restrictions and specifications imposed by our particular target group. The design submissions will be presented to our project partners and an expert panel, who will rate them on a couple of criteria: feasibility (do all the parts fit into the design), aesthetics (subjective opinion on the look and feel) and fit with the target group (ease of use, simplicity and UX tailored to users with limited fine motor skills). At the end of this review process, we will award the winning design(s). The winner and first runner-up of the contest will receive a total sum of $100.
