Design a vortex tube

in Industrial Design Services held by TIPS
Contest Closed
The project consists of designing a 3D model, a simulation and a drawing of Ranque-Hilch vortex tube.
This product is supposed to create a cold fraction and a hot fraction from 6-7 bar compressed air, the cold fraction is a temperature drop of 40°C.
The material of the tube is aluminum, we are willing to manufacture it on cnc lathe, so consider fabrication requirements and optimal material use.

Men's Wristwatch
The design submission should include: Rendered Imagery: showing front, back, top, bottom left and right, and 3/4 perspective views. Rendered views for the front, back, top and bottom can be combined into one or two image files if appropriate. The perspective view must be a separate image. It is encouraged that the rendered images be as realistic as possible and provide enough lighting to show design details. Environment and lighting style is left to the designer. Requirements: 1. Men’s wristwatch. 2. It should have an outdoors and sporty look. An ideal buyer would be someone in the armed forces. 3. Illumination around the watch ring and on the hours seconds and minutes hand using tritium tubes. 4. The closest competition brand would be Luminox.

Ceiling mounted antenna
Hi, thanks for reading. We are looking to design a very simple, yet elegant plastic to house a small circuit board and antenna. it will need to mount to a ceiling tile, ceiling grid or with screws through some sort of mounting plate. (should have a magnet option) there should be a set screw or other mechanical method to connect from the antenna to the base. it's very likely this will be mounted nearby to one of these access points, but we don't want to copy it, just be aesthetically pleasing and compatible. The PCB will be 2" round circle and I have 2 options for an antenna perpendicular to the PCB, first is 2-3/4 inches the second is 1 inch. the antenna will hang DOWN towards the floor from the PCB which shall be parallel to the ceiling. if the design appears much more pleasing with the shorter option that is preferred. I would guess 3" in diameter would be maximum. there will be a small USB cable exiting the side of the device, it would be nice if this had some sort of channel that held the cable in place in the event of accidental pull (strain relief idea) but mainly just so it didn't get unplugged by someone pulling on it. a 180 degree gentle radius on the channel may accomplish this? an s curve? the cable will be micro USB on one end into the PCB and regular USB on the other. the files received at the end of the project should be in a format easily viewed by our team without special software but should also be ready for the plastics tool maker to create the tool.
Modern wooden Arabic Incense burner (Mabkhara)
Hello Designers, Mabkhara (incense burner) is a well know product used in the Arabic region to burn agarwood using hot Charcoal. More information on Mabkhara and how its used please see this video or other similar videos. Traditionally is was made from wood with copper nails as decoration or in some regions and completely from copper in other regions. we are looking to modernize the wooden Mabkhara shape but using the same materials. This is a video on how its made (sorry its in Arabic, but the process and the materials is clear) Important information: 1- charcoal temperature is around 350 - 420 C (depending on charcoal size), so placing charcoal directly on the wood will burn the Mabkhara. There should be a separating material such as Aluminum to isolate the hot charcoal from the wood as to cover the charcoal hole. 2- Hot charcoal needs oxygen to keep burning, so the charcoal needs air flow and can't be hidden. 3- the Mabkhara is held by hand, so the shape should support that. Thank you and be creative.
How is the weather?
Looking for packaging and industrial design help for a new project. This device will mount to a wall or ceiling in a commercial building. This device enclosure will need to let air into the device to contact up to 5 individual sensors. (See Attachment for general size of components and constraints) Top wants -Max form factor of 7" wide x 4.5" tall x 1" off wall (electrical box configuration) Wall mount could be up to 2" max off wall - Attractive look for commercial office or educational buildings in landscape primarily, but also look good in portrait orientation. - Sensor Status light feature for the entire unit (easy to view, sleek, but not eyesore during general use) -Sensors need to be retained securely during shipment, but be accessible for replacement later on by unskilled labor. Other Wants: From the front look. Front Bezel attaches to Back housing for periodic sensor replacement (must be easy). Minimal Profile off wall Airflow on bottom / side surfaces Mounts to a 3-Gang electrical box (old & new work boxes & have surface mount option. Easy installation Sensors should be towards the bottom of the unit When bezel is removed, have a place to hang /store the bezel while working on sensor replacement. I/O should be easily accessible during installation. I/O should be protected if installer does not use an electrical box. Easy interface for installers for wiring & wire routing Mounts to a 3-Gang electrical box & surface mount option
