Description:Our company, GnomeBOT, is working on a garden automation tool and we need a design for the product case. The case will look like a gnome, and will
How did we come up with a gnome?
Think about the home automation tools you've seen. They either look like a 90's router (box with antennas out of the top), or they're sleek modern works of art. Think about the Nest thermostat. What does it look like? Your grandma's thermostat, right? Except much more modern. That's what we're going for: a nod at your grandma's gnome, but modern.
Points of consideration:
> Our device is a gnome, and a computer/robot. We're looking for a modern way to blend the two.
>The gnome will house electronic components including sensors (with external probes which will plug in via ports), a 16x2 LCD, a PCB, and an antenna.
>The final product will be waterproof. Avoid any areas that could pool water.
>The product will go outside in customer's yards. Consider a base or large footprint to keep the unit stable
>There will be plugs for sensors connecting to the gnome. Please plan an area for 5-8 probes to connect.
>Design will need to be printed as 2 halves that come together once the internal components are in place.
Wants:We'll be evaluating each design based on these criteria:
>Design asthetics: Does the gnome look modern, and like it belongs alongside other sleek home automation devices?
>Emotion: Does the gnome's feature, facial expression, pose, apparel, etc. convey modern, happy, wise?
>Dimensions: Would the figurine fit a 4"x2"x7" cavity inside for components?
>Creative LCD placement: Does the design incorporate the LCD in a creative and natural way?
>Usability: Is the design and file something we can continue to tweak and iterate?
>3D printability: Can the design be printed easily?
Don't Wants:We're not looking for a troll, or a dwarf, or a smurf, or an elf, or Santa.
Additional InformationGnome should be 10" tall.
For your submission, please submit a rendering as a jpeg.
We'll also need an stl and obj file so we can 3D print the gnome.
Of the designs we've received so far, our favorite look is #42. However, this design does not show how the case would fit together, etc.
Our favorite design files are from #45. This designer has spent time and attention on how the case would fit together, how it would stand, where the screen and plugs would go, etc.
If someone were able to combine the design of #42 with technical details of #45, we'd have a winner!
Just about 10 hours to go! We've narrowed the results down to what we believe are the top few entries based on our needs.
One quick reminder to all designers that we are looking for a case for an expensive piece of technology. This isn't a toy. We do have a playful marketing piece, but we have to present a device, not a toy.

I have been working on a product that requires 3d design of a skull and butterfly that will be CNC machined, which will require the STEP file format. The skull and butterfly will be housed in a metal and glass bottle. I would also like to have the design for the other component reviewed and recommended changes be made to accommodate the skull.

This will be a complete collection Also, at the time of meeting, I would need to have you sign our confidentiality agreement. Could you bring some samples of your work to this meeting, when we DO set up a time and place for this meeting?? Do you have a website of your work?? What type of 3d modeling software do you use?? Rhino? or other? Thanks so much for your time. Warmest Regards, Kimberley Carson RM LLC
