#29 Gateway - Modern Frame Style by Model to Life, PLLC
Hi Jorgen,
Please find attached the images and step file of my gateway design. I think the 2 housings should be made of Ferrex. It is a high gloss polypropylene with excellent chemical resistance and good UV resistance, so you should not need a UV stabilizer with it. It's also a third of the price of a polycarbonate. Its worst property is impact; I think it can withstand being dropped, but don't hit it hard with a hammer.
I planned to mold in the mounts for the DIN TS-35 rail. I think the slides can be pulled to the center of the part, which is reflected in the draft. I added O-rings, a gasket, and 2 screws to make it IP-65 compliant. It is setup for a simple top down assembly, just load the face part into a fixture, board, gaskets, back part, and screws. I kept the screw bosses and ribs in the rounds to hide any sink on the face of the part. The screw heads are counter sunk so they may be covered with a label, but I didn't make the label model. Please let me know if you'd like me to change anything.

#45 IoT GA MAZI by Thanos Ziozias - Mazi Design
The inspiration is based on meridians and parallels lines, sub-serving the global character of the IoT, standing out from other industrial equipment, creating brand awareness. The dimensions and shape are restricted from the design guides and if they change the whole project can evolve to something more unique and interesting. Any detail of the project can be adjusted according to the needs.

Hello Meshtec,

could you extend the deadline over the weekend?




Thu, 19 Apr 2018 07:22:38 +0000
please give your valuable feedback to my design.



Mon, 16 Apr 2018 17:28:38 +0000
Hi Meshtech.
Are you going to start rating entries and provide feedback to help designers achieve a solution you like?
With a bit of interaction you will get much better entries instead of pot luck submissions.
Designers spend a lot of time and effort on each entry and even if not a winner they like to have some feedback!



Thu, 12 Apr 2018 05:25:07 +0000

Tahseen Maqsood; Feel free to upload your sample. Looking forward to review.



Mon, 09 Apr 2018 05:42:45 +0000
DARREN, correctly. The main concept is a gateway with no external connections. Main functions will be built-in such as bluetooth, antenna and main battery. Only marking for it. Machining for external ports will be optional if client need theese ports.
Sat, 07 Apr 2018 13:38:31 +0000
did I understand correctly that there are no external connections/Antenna, Status LED indicators (red/green), NB-IoT, LTE-M
signal to be visible trough a thinner section on the top surface? Is it a basic enclosed box?
Fri, 06 Apr 2018 15:38:22 +0000
Hmm. interesting contest. I will participate.
Fri, 06 Apr 2018 13:25:17 +0000
is a very good prize, and will have great entries.
You could have partitioned a portion of that value to add the second and third place.

In my opinion, when you have more chances of winners it ends up stimulating more the challenge.

Pet waste treatment system
Design a pet Waste Disposal system for dogs. By using the design and engineering of a septic tank & leach field system to create a pet Waste Disposal system. The system must be able to liquify solids break down enzymes in bacteria to recycle treated water back into the ground or vegetation etc. The product must contain a lid for waist entry and ventilation. The product design must have a way to clean out sludge buildup in bottom of liquifying portion of the tank. The product can be design for above ground or in-ground application. The engineering of the product should not stand in the way of any design that is appealing and functionable.
"Transformer" like stool design
We are a company that provides unique active seating for the educational market. We pride ourselves in providing the most innovative, high quality product to our customer. This product would be a stool that has functionality to "twist" into multiple configurations and heights. This is furniture and would be completely different but the best way I can describe the idea is something like how a Transformer toy does that. In one position, the seat would be a regular stool seat but then you would twist and lock into a configuration that would be a seat with a back rest that is 4-6" high. It would also have the ability to twist and adjust into 2 heights to provide flexibility for student size and age. When in the lower height, the stool would be 14" high and when in the higher position it would be 16" high. The stool seat will be 13" in diameter and will have a slight dome to make it active while sitting on it. Needs to support at least 250 lbs. The end user is a student so safety is critical. The functionality to change the positions also needs to be simple to execute. Open to materials based on design.
