Robotic Enclosure

in 3D Printing Design held by j23huynh
Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
Hello,

I have attached a blender file that has two objects in the file. The intention of this project is to create an enclosure for a robot. The circular object is the base which will go on top of the robot, the chassis is this (mm), I believe i have already adjusted the initial enclosure to fit on top of the chassis but please verify.

I would like the chute object to be mounted on top of the enclosure, where a marble will sit in the chute and when the robot spins, the marble will slide down the chute.
Wants:
Design must be a clean and uniform design. It must be able to fit on the chassis size that is linked.

Other software can be used but PLEASE submit a stil file for 3D printing and a blender file with the model. Also, keep it simple!
Software:
  1. Autodesk Inventor
Additional Information
Forgot to list the PREFFERED CAD SOFTWARE:

BLENDER, but I am open to all other software.

Update 1:
Referenced to the comment regarding the dimensions and blender scaling, I do not want the enclosure to be EXACTLY the same size as the chassis (in terms of the diameter) I want the enclosure to be slightly smaller (that is why the enclosure is ~115mm).

I have also attached the pictures of the robot to help with the design of the enclosure.

Can you upload the 3d model in OBJ or 3ds format?

is a 2mm wall thickness ok for the final model ?

Hey Design-for-UX

I've attached pictures of the robot and ideally i want the chute to mount on top of the sphere structure. Make any adjustments necessary to make it one model after melding them together. I do not mind if the sphere is slightly changed/molded to accommodate the chute structure.

Hey Adam,

You are correct the outside diameter is 115, I actually made it exactly 115. as I do not want the enclosure to completely rest on the edge of the object. I am open to complete remodels but I thought it would be easier to submit designs I currently have.

Can you please share any image or rough sketch about the final model you are expecting.

It certainly helps all.

Thanks,
GG

Your blender file requires it to be scaled down by a factor of .1 (point 1) to get close to intended size.
After that, the inside diameter of the sphere only measures 110.5 and the outside diameter 115.
This means the board image your provided in the pdf link wont fit in the base.

You're probably better off having someone remodel both parts. Conventional CAD systems don't have a blender export option, but you can export to STL.

Maleficent horn replica
Hello, I'm looking to have an exact replica of the horns worn by Angelina Jolie in the movie Maleficent, to be 3D printed. I need them to be as exact as humanly possible - I have attached a few images of the actual cast used for the horns in the movie and then a few of the finished headdress. I would be interested in having either a cap or a band designed in to attach the horns to each other and make building the headdress around them easier - I think a band would be preferable. In the movie it seems as though the overall length of the horns are about 11 inches, which is perfect. I would like all the details such as the growth rings, small details on the inside of the horns near the tip and the shape/width at the base in tact. I will be building a headdress around them so I suppose colour isn't massively important, but if they could be black that would be preferable.
Need some designing done.
Hi, I'm a mechanical engineering student and I need a stl. file that i can use for some SLS printing. The component needs to have a 10cmx10cm base. The height is broken into three stages. 3mm base plate, 30mm lattice structure and finally another 3mm top plate. I've already constructed a similar component but instead of a lattice structure it has struts. I have attached some files to help with the explanation. can you help make my lattice structure?

Simple Wristband Attachment Accessory
This contest is to design a very simple wristband attachment accessory piece that can hold a piece of fabric that was cut in a circle. The overall shape of the piece is a football/oval shape. I am attaching some pictures to show a prototype that I made out of paper. There should be 2 triangle shaped holes on the 2 ends that I can attach the piece to. There should also be an inner circle where I can glue the circle cut of fabric. The inner circle should be indented about a millimeter inward from the flat surface to place the cut of fabric. The inner circle should also be 1/2 inches in diameter. There should also be an outline around that inner circle that is flat with the front surface and that outline circle should be a diameter that is about 6 millimeters wider than the inner circle. The overall piece should be about 1.25-1.5 inches long in width from end to end and about 5/8 inches in height from the tallest point in the middle of the piece. All of these measurement can be changed if needed to make the design better, but the inner piece that fits that fabric should be able to comfortably fit a piece of fabric that is 1/2 inches in diameter.
