So ETEC, any feedback for me in regards to the designs I submitted for comment? I would like to know if I am off base or on track?

Thanks,

Not sure if there is such a thing anymore as an "unique" bluetooth speaker anymore..? Google and Youtube seem to have that covered. What do you think will make your bluetooth speaker stand out from the rest? The one I found that stands out from the rest is worth $3000 USD. Now that's unique!

perhaps intergrating Alexa into the software?

Would you also consider other functions like voice recognition as with the Amazon echo?

Hi Brandon! Thanks for your inquiry, Internal chargeable function is a must. Removable battery function is (good to have) so it extends battery life outdoors, but it of-course increases cost and size of speaker.

Hi Ehrisham! Thanks for your inquiry, we need cosmetic design with rough structural design. Our engineer team would later work on detailed mechanical design.

Purpose of removable battery, vs an internal chargeable?

Kids Innovative Equestrian Saddle Design
We are looking for a professional spec sheet/drawing of a children's equestrian barrel racing saddle with very unique features! The purpose of this drawing will be to help provide specs to a supplier so we can have a first prototype. First, the saddle will be using a standard kids saddle tree but will neoprene instead of leather with a cordura wrap over the neoprene for weatherproofing and durability (100 D cordura)! This exists today, but in adult sizes. Good examples of youth sizes we will need are here (good for dimensional references: http://www.saddleonline.com/blogs/content/how-fit-saddle-child-or-youth) I'd like to start with 12" and 14" seat sizes. I would like this to weigh no more than 12 lbs. This is the exact saddle I want but with the features below and in children size seats: brazilliansaddle.com The first unique feature will be a cinch strap that is "ratcheting" versus traditional leather that is pulled through and tightened with holes. This will make it easy for a child to tighten. The ratchet can be aluminum or steel but must have a padding that velcro over so it doesn't scrape the leg of the rider or the horses side. It should be as thin in profile as integrally possible. An example of the ratchet style I like is here: http://www.hamptonproducts.com/product/details/07507?v=c. The hooks should lay flat however, and there should be holes on the slack so someone can essential put the one end of the cinch in and tighten the rest of the way with the ratchet. The second feature is a fold up "step" that will be on the left side of the saddle if a rider is sitting on it and behind the stirrup. The "step" can be nylon with a plastic bar for the bottom of the foot. It must be able to be coiled up and snapped up onto the saddle when not in use. The third feature is a gel seat that will provide added comfort for the rider. The third feature are storage on the back and sides of the saddle (a built on saddle pack) that can hold a water bottle and phone. It would be awesome to show this in a cactus pattern just to get the idea across that we want something fun and do various patterns. See attachments.
Indoor Privacy Bed Tent
Design an indoor tent which is free standing and fits a twin mattress at the base of the tent. The tent can be floorless, but needs to be free standing on the top of a standard bed. The tent needs to provide privacy for the person sleeping on the mattress, and will be ventilated with two windows at either end with mesh covering and have large U shaped doors on either side operated by zippers.
Christmas Light String and Attachment Pieces Design
I am looking for a product designer/drafter to create an indoor LED holiday string light with detachable bulb covers (globes). My initial thought is to have the globes made of acrylic (because of how it reflects light) but I am open to other suggestions. The light bases should be spaced 4 inches apart and be more aesthetically pleasing than traditionally marketed Christmas lights (see reference picture A). I am looking for a 25 bulb light string and a 50 bulb light string. The globes should be large enough to have an image printed on them with a UV printer (if using acrylic) but not too large that they take away from the overall design. I need a creative and quick way to attach/detach the globes to the light bases. I DO NOT want the globes to screw in like a traditional light bulb (too much risk of images on the globes not lining up). I would like the light string to function as both battery operated and plug in. A product on the market exists already for a plug attachment piece to use as reference (see reference B). I would need a designer to let m know if you can make the connection from the preexisting design to the light string any less clunkier. I would also need a designer to create the battery operated attachment. The string light should also be able to connect to other sets seamlessly (no large gap in between strings which oftentimes happens with indoor string lights). I will need a design that can be used to create the prototype for the 25 bulb light string/50 bulb light string including globes, connection point between globe and light base, and both attachment pieces (wired and battery option). At a minimum, this includes but is not limited to a 2D design with dimensions, images of all angles needed to create the prototype, material recommendations and 3D 360 image of the product.
Invisible suspenders | Prize includes royalties
Looking to create a new type of consumer accessory that serves the same function as suspenders, but designed in a way that allows the accessory to remain unseen. The idea is to help consumers keep their pants up, without the use of traditional over-the-shoulder suspenders, and as a bonus, possibly also help keep shirts tucked. The article (link below) covers the topic and shares some existing market solutions, none of which are consumer friendly enough. https://undershirtguy.com/flat-butt-how-to-keep-your-pants-from-falling-down/ The material used in this new suspender-alternative accessory has to be somewhat soft and body friendly, since it will likely come in contact with the skin. With that in mind, I am initially thinking this could be made of a rubber type of material, or possibly a blend of silicone and santoprene. However, let's not restrict the idea to only that material category, if you think something else will written better. One possible design solution is two-part product: 1. one that sits on the inside of the shirt or undershirt, that has a protrusion, and 2. a fastener that attaches on the outside of the shirt or undershirt to lock the accessory to the shirt or undershirt. In the concept above, the accessory assembly essentially creates a subtle ridge that the pants waistline can rest on, possibly with the assistance of a belt. The one potential drawback to the above design, is that the consumer must either wear their shirt tucked in, or wear an undershirt. Not a deal breaker, but something to keep in mind. Another possible direction would be to have the accessory attach to the pants inside waistline somehow, and be made from a material that has enough height and grip with the skin or underwear to prevent the pants from sliding down. Though, the solution would have to be as reliable as suspenders. The accesory should be super simple to use, and also be removable and reusable, like suspenders. Clean, simple, friendly. Think Apple simple and clean, Sonos, Simple Human. As part of this contest, should this product be brought to market, I am creating an additional financial incentive of a limited royalty agreement that will be split between Cad Crowd and the designer. The proposed, and Cad Crowd approved, limited royalty structure royalty would be $0.50 usd per unit-assembly sold (50/50 split between Cad Crowd and the winning designer) for the first 10,000 pieces sold.
Skin Care Brush
I'm seeking a CAD designer/firm for a skin care brush. Below are it's requirements: 1. a two-three piece mold in which the parts join (snap, insert, interlock, etc). 2. top portion part is a more flexible durometer and the bottom portion/handle part is a firm plastic durometer. 3. a clean, minimalist design (visual references can be provided) - brush body must conform to body areas shapes: legs, armpits, bikini zone, under neck/chin - brush handle must be ergonomic to right/left handed 4. additional info as well as pencil & vector sketches can be provided for later stages 5. No need to design the brush bristles (already have these) so main focus is on body and how the two durometers are joined 6. I will need at least (3) three designed options to pick from and prototype.
