Gnome needed for Garden Device

in 3D Printing Design held by Gardener
Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
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.
Software:
  1. Blender
Additional Information
Gnome 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.

*****EDIT 7/3/2017********************

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!

*****EDIT 7/6/2017********************
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.

#22 Modern Gnome V2 by Martin Boillat
After a complete rework of my previous creation, here is a brand new gnome model, which follows most of your guidelines. I am aware the overall look is quite simple, as I tried to keep it as modern as possible, but an additional belt or some details can be added if you think they are relevant to make it look more like a garden gnome.
I am still available and hearing forward your feedback,
-Martin

#76 Troll Head Sensor Bot by Decker
This Troll Head Sensor bot would be made from a expanded foam product poured from the bottom. An insert in the bottom would then be placed within very easily slid into a pocket for both protection and concealment. Senors would be within the figure. If needed small holes could be drilled to place sensors at various strategic spots meant to look like eyes, a mouth or ears. The ornamental design would not be intrusive for the owner to house with a garden space. This design can also be made to look like porcelain, cement, or plastic.

Hi everyone,

The contest is over, so if you want to talk to each other about the designs, entries etc, I appreciate if you can do that privately or to open a new thread in the forums, that will be visible for everyone.

As you know, each designer who participated to the contest (and the buyer also) receive email notifications when a comment is posted, so is really annoying to receive notifications each day, even the contest ended.

As for showing the winning entries, I'm sure that Pablo and Eira could do that (in the forums or privately), since the contest ended.

Hopefully this will be the last post here, at the contest page. There is no need to reply to my comment, you could send me a message if something is not clear.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks again,
Lucian

Hi Gardener & Pablo,

After congratulations,
In the recommendations and feedback you tell me that you like the beard and the 2nd winner has no beard! .... I would like to see the first winner to do my analysis and synthesis. To remind you I made 20 entries and I worked hard in this project.

Message for siti,: you deserve it (I wanted to clarify the ambiguous choice)

Either way, let me express one thing:
I really don't feel good about how the client is cannibalizing the concepts trying to make us use things from other concepts into a Frankenstein product. I really feel bad about Zerroug who has though and designed that shape in the first place, and no one would have a clue how to design it if it were for him. For me, this is really unethical.

La'al Ratty Locomotive & Coaches Creation Contest of Funitude!! :D
I basically need No. 7 River Esk. It's a 2-8-2 with 8-wheeled tender in lnwr blackberry livery with black, off-white, & red lining. The other stuff can be found in the pictures. The Non Open Coaches are blue & white, the open coaches are maroon. I'd like them ALL to be ready to run *that means I need the chassis motor built in, built in the locomotive itself of course*. The couplings are 3-link couplings. The coaches are bogie used. I can add the bogies, I just need it to where they just need to be screwed into the floor of the coaches :). Also, the engine and coaches need brake pipes on both ends of both the engine & coaches. Also, there are 10 coaches, only 3 are open coaches, the rest are the regular ones.
