Robotic Enclosure

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?

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.

This is a file of a die that is just too large for some reason. I want to make a mold of dice 10 dice wide and 10 dice tall which would get me 100 dice.

Ring design with branches and bramble
We are looking for a ring that will eventually be printed in sterling, featuring bare branches. Ring band needs to resemble a branch (or branches), and the top of the ring needs branches wrapping about it. Inside this ring we'll be adding an element later, so we need a pocket underneath the branches that will fit an item that is approx 5mmx20mm. The design sketch shows a bit of a lip to the pocket from the side view, this will help keep the item in place. Once the design is approved, we'll need it in US sizes 5-13.

3D Printing Design | Meet the minimum thinkness on two small parts of my 3D STL file for Shapeways!
I need someone to make a certain part of my 3D anchor stl file a little thicker. Nothing complicated at all! The guy that was working on this file is really swamped with work and cannot complete this edit. This job should literally take less than 30 minutes if you know what you are doing. On the attached picture it shows that I need to make specific parts of the anchor a little thicker to meet the minimum supported wire thickness of .8mm. Here's what the email I recieved from shapeways said: "Here is why we cannot print your model: The minimum thickness for free/supporting wires > 1.0mm and supported wires > 0.8mm for this material. Please thicken the wires of the model." I have specified what needs to be done on the picture attached. Please message me if you need clarification. If you know what you are doing and have worked with stl. files and understand the thickness minimum that shapeways requires for 3d printing then this should be a no-brainer.
