Breathing aid for saxophone

Description:
I have an Idea for a product which teaches beginning students to correctly insert the sax mouthpiece while playing and maintain proper breathing technique. The basis for this device is an incentive spirometer, which is already often used by wind instrument players.

This company has the same concept as me. I would like to take that concept and put it in a more compact and aesthetically pleasing device. The device will be made of hard plastic. Anything instrument related incorporated into the desighn will be nice.

I will provide pictures of my BASIC desighn idea. I would like for the desighner to play around with the shape and form. But the elevated angle where the mouthpiece is inserted MUST be incorporated to allow the user to be able to blow and also view the ball. Also, the tiny built in ledge on the top front of the mouthpiece must also be incorporated as it will force the student to put the correct amount of mouthpiece in his or her mouth.
Wants:
The device must allow the user to see the ball while also blowing

Play around with the forms but the general shape of the mouthpiece should stay the same. As long as the body of the device incorporates the concept shown in the link
provided , I am fine with different shapes.
I would also like to incorporate an airflow change switch somewhere on the device which would allow the student to decrease or increase the air allowed through.
Don't Wants:
I will accept any idea that I like, as long as it incorporates the two ideas.
Ask for Sample:
Yes
Software:
  1. One that would allow me eventually 3D print.

Just one touch up for flow control and this should work great.

#16 spiral_spiro by vrobotics
This has almost accurate dimensions as required for pipe, mouthpiece and contains a flow control knob and fulfills requirements. The user can easily see the ball and can have better ball control and precision because of reference set by spiral. This is modification of previously posted design. It can be easily 3d printed and is easy to assemble and disassemble.

What kind of material are using for 3D printer? If It is not plastic material, should have some design suitable for that material

Re-Design Pool Pump Housing
We are looking to make the outside of our pool pump more aesthetically pleasing by adding our logo, color and design elements to the outside pump housing. We could go with a more rounded look to the pump vs. the straight line look. We do need to use the same lid which is used on our current design so the area where the lid attaches needs to be unchanged, the same will go for the area where the motor attaches to the pump housing. Integrate our Logo and Orange and Blue Colors into housing.
New Smartband design
We want a smartband design for our new product. The smartband should look modern and rugged. Should be composed of an monocrhome OLED 0,96'' 3 leds with different colours and 3 buttons aligned with the leds The buttons and the leds should be placed on the top of the device and not on the side as many watches. We would like to follow the colours of this band as it gives the idea of safety and of been rugged: https://toughphones.net/product/mtt-smartwatch-protection-tough-smartwatch/ The size should be close to 47x31mm but can be a bit different.
Wooden 3d printer
I want to build a 3d printing machine out of 1/4” plywood and wooden dowels. To win the prize, I need a 3d rendering, a explosion picture of the system and a dxf or dwg file showing all the parts laid out for cutting by a cnc machine. The goal is to Repstrap a 3d printer similar to the Wally. The first thing to do is review the Wally blog at http://forums.reprap.org/read.php?185,220993 The next thing to review is the git hub site. https://github.com/NicholasSeward/ConceptFORGE/tree/master/Wally This has all the files for dimensions and parts needed This will be the starting point, nothing is set in stone, If you need things to be bigger or smaller, that is ok. 1. I have included a variety of pictures and ideas. Use them as you wish. 2. I see the arms built out of 3 layers of plywood. Bearing on top, bearing on bottom and the middle piece has a smaller diameter hole to keep bearings from falling through. Ply wood dowels should be used for indexing assembly. 3. Bearings are being used for both smooth motion and rigidity. 4. The frame and table should be tabbed so that the parts push together and self align. 5. The back is to be 2 layers. For a total of 1/2”. The back should be inset a 1/4” to allow for a future modification. 6. All parts that can ( brackets) should be tabbed to self align and position. 7. I would like to be able to flip one of the arms and have it line up with the other arm. This is for a future change to add a central carrier. (like in the original design) 8. Shaft connections to motors need to be figured out 9. To tighten the fishing line, I will be using guitat pegs. There needs to be a hole for a dowel to lock in position. 10. I would like to get all the pieces on the front side of the printer. If dimensions need to be made to frame, that is fine. 11. Bed will be multiple layers. There should be a bottom, a ring to open center to 1/2” (for a heated bed) and a pice of glass will sit on top of this. 12. Pulley to arm attachment. I have a couple of ides on this. One is to use a dowel into a bearing another is to tighten the bolt and then have a plywood key that fits around outside of bolt and keys into pulley or arm. 13. The bearings are cheap. If an extra bearing makes something easier, use it. 14. File will be cut using an 1/8th inch bit. Adjust slots for this. (ie. Add a 1/16th of an inch to each side I am sure there will be lots of questions. I will answer them as they come up. I will also send a kit (plywood and bearings) to the winner.

The Beach Floor
Description: Problem - Going to the beach and trying to eat and fix lunches or snacks without getting sand in your food and drinks is a never ending challenge for beachgoers. And when you put kids in the mix, it doubles and triples your chances of a sand-filled experience. There are currently no products on the market today that mimic a solid foundation. * Either you are dragging a fold up table or laying down a towel or trying to do it all on top of your cooler lid. * You cannot sit your chairs on your towels or a tarp as they end up pushing sand onto the towel/tarp and or tearing them. Solution - A foldable hard surface that can be carried by one person *Would need to fit to a standard 10x10 pop up tent and include some type of loops or straps for connecting to the legs (If a tent is larger, that is fine as the weight should keep it from blowing away. Or, could include 4 stakes) *Would want a way that it unfolds to have a whole in the center that would be large enough to allow for a Beach Umbrella Anchor to fit through it. (Example: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71bMza2sNfL._SL1500_.jpg) . *By doing this, you allow for a customer to use it either with an umbrella, a tent or with no shade cover. *Should include a nice bag carrying cover with handles. Material considerations: * This should be made of a hard plastic like material. Metal will be too heavy and cloth-like material found on tumbling mats will potentially tear unless we could source something that has proven durability and will not cave with weight. *The material should be considered for printing of logos or branding (Sports teams, Company logos/names, etc.)
