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.

- One that would allow me eventually 3D print.
#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.

Similar Contests on Cad Crowd
I would like to design a more moden hideaway for guinea pig, hamsters, rabbit etc. I would like to keep still wood pine house since these animals will bite it up. I would like it to be more of a luxury look but still in the same sizing because most customers will buy a small starter cage to fit it in. I will post an example in the pictures of sizing of cage. Guinea Pigs have an issue pulling there food and water bowls in there hide aways and spill everything. I would like the food and water bowls to be attached to the house with a bowl holder where I can remove the bowls on and off to fill up. I would like the food and water bowl to be ceramic. A window can be made where the animal sticks there head out the window to the bowl drink and eat the food easily while inside there home. Attached are pictures of a hideway would like it around that same size. Food and water bowl would like it to be more that shape. Animal Cage picture the hide away would have to fit in that cage size.
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.
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.
Removable/twisting top part design for refillable 2 in 1 botlle
The bottle will have 2 chambers. At the top of the bottle 2 dispensing caps marked (1) of the type that is attached on a separate picture. The bottle is refillable and for easy refill the top part marked (2) will be either completely taken off or twisted sideways being attached at the centre somehow. The top part must sit on the bottle very tight so no liquid can leak outside or from chamber to chamber. We are looking for the best solution how the top part can be attached to the bottle.
Smart Water Carafe
- a glass Water Carafe that does not drip upon pouring - a smart lid that covers it up the glass part, which could block lemon slices / fruits from flowing out. It blocks dust from going in when its rested. - lid made with a combination of ABS resin, stainless steel, and silicone. Could be poured in 360 degrees all directions, and you don't have to open the lid while pouring. - prefer to have same functions / aesthetic like the Menu / Kinto water carafe - 3 sizes, 0.7L, 1L, 1.3L. Best to share 3 sizes of tubs with 1 single lid. But not a must. - Body made of boro-silicate glass, which is mouth blown - Can be lifted / held by one hand. So a reasonable diameter is required. - Dishwasher safe, no glueing.
