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.

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

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.
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.
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.)
Airsoft Pistol Grip
I am looking for a model of a pistol grip. Mostly angular, but smoothed over, does not need to be ergonomic. I have supplied a drawing of the mounting surface, it must be compatible with this, in that file there is a sample grip outline size reference, grip designs must be close in size to what is supplied, grip width is 1.2in at the maximum. Grip angle must be 13.5 degrees less vertical than 90 degrees. A non textured, non photo realistic model. Must be symmetrical.
Lipstick & Liquid Lipstick 3D Product Design Contest
My team and I are currently in the process of developing a luxury cosmetic brand and we need 3D content designs for our manufacturers to refer to for the molding of the components. We need a design for our lipstick as well as our liquid lip stick (similar to lip gloss). Again, the product will be high-end luxury; so the design should emulate that. The colors should consist of chrome/metallic/silver, black and or white. The design should be sleek and thin. Although we prefer classic silhouettes, you can attempt to subtly incorporate geometric shapes, along the lines of a diamond. Don't be afraid to have fun with it, but don't have to much fun! You can look to the presentation and other attachments for inspiration and direction. If you guys have any questions don't hesitate to ask!
