#3 Concept 2 - Upgraded and beefed up to look the part by Decker
This design now should have no problems supporting 600 lbs. I doubled up the cross sections and all the pinning is 1" Dia. Way overkill for the job. Features added 1/2" double plate, and gusseting. If we specify welding and pipe thickness, we can support loading far exceeding 600 lbs. An FEA analysis can be determined from this modelling by a certified engineer using the STEP file provided.

Designers, The seated Calf raise machine design should have a Unilateral design: meaning each leg will have it's own thigh pad and weight stack.

Hi everyone,

Please note that submitting entries just with the logo, blank images or a very small part of the product isn't allowed and all the entries which doesn't follow the rules will be deleted.

If you are worried about the confidentiality or plagiarism by other users, you can ask Achilles to make the contest blind. Otherwise, even if the contest is not blind, you still need to upload visible designs/screenshots of the entire product.

So @sherifelsheikh, @Pablo Gosso, @NabilZer, @Fedenko, @Akuma X, @Steven INA : please re-submit your entries with a visible screenshot.

Lucian

P.S. There is no need to answer to my comment here, to avoid off-topic messages. Just send me a message if you will have any questions.

You are correct. The seated calf raise machine should haves two different arms, with two rotation points and two different Weights stocks.

Designers, you may use Autodesk Fusion 360

is it only for product design, not mechanical design? I mean not need stress analysis and simulation.
can i use Autodesk Fusion 360?

Please make the contest blind so we cannot see each others works.
That way you will have more original ideas rather than variations of one product.
Mon, 11 Jun 2018 23:27:00 +0000
800$? how important is this project for you? would you like to start a production?
If what you are looking for is a great product and not a concept design, you can hardly get something like that with such a low price.
A complex job like this takes a long time and requires many skills.
Please let us know what your intentions are. Thanks

Designers, there are quite a few seated calf raise machines on the market. I want a design that is totally different but still has the strength to handle up to 600 pounds.
I have attached images of various types of seated calf raise machines. These are just go-byes of what a seated calf raise machine looks like.

Similar Contests on Cad Crowd

Le Mans LMP1
I want someone to design a Le Mans Prototype, and I prefer the Toyota Hybrid TS030. This is a personal project to build it as a hobby. I want to build the body out of fiber glass by making (milling) molds with a CNC router machine using a 3D software. I am a fabricator, so it will be easier and preferable for me to build (weld) the chassis out of aluminum or steel, whichever you think will be more recommended for building a chassis.
Inventor product block maintenance
We have a large number of CAD blocks representing our product range which require alteration. The work is quite straight forward but high in volume. There will be a number of weeks work with the potential for ongoing work. An understanding of the vault filing system used for Inventor would be an advantage but is not essential.
Euler Motors
Govt. of India has introduced new category of Vehicle - E Rickshaw last year primarily to uplift the working condition of rickshaw-pullers (from an otherwise physically taxing mode of commute, rickshaw pullers and drivers now have an easier and greener alternative.) E Rickshaw comes in two variant - Passenger Vehicle and Goods Carrier. Euler Motors is working on 3 Wheeler Electric Good Carrier variant for Indian Market - Tier 3/4 Markets { Villages, Small Townships }. Here is specification according to government :- 1. Top Speed = 25 Km/H 2. Load Capacity = 310 Kgs 3. Length x Width x Height = 2.8 m x 1 m x 1.8 m . (Dimensions are in Meters) Here are some of the existing version of E Rickshaw Goods Carrier :- https://goo.gl/kTx6ho https://goo.gl/vWCgjm https://goo.gl/wFLdQZ https://goo.gl/SSYsfy https://goo.gl/3FTk7n https://goo.gl/p2xjS3 Salient Features That Euler Motors is working on :- 4.3” Inch Digital Display { Link = https://goo.gl/5EJFuw } instead of Regular Dial based display { Link = https://goo.gl/CpC4fv }. This display will display stats around Speed, Battery Left, Temp., Headlights, Indicator Reverse Backup Camera : To enhance Safety of the vehicle and driver, a reverse backup camera will be attached to the rear - centre of the vehicle. Display from camera would appear on the 4.3” Digital display when vehicle reverses. Li Ion Battery will be placed in front of the vehicle {below the driver’s seat}. However the structure should be made in a way that the battery can taken out from enclosure within 2 minutes if required. Entire battery back will consist of 2 modules. Each module will be of following dimensions Each Module’s Weight = 12 Kgs Each Module’s size : Length x Width x Height = 220 mm x 210 mm x 355 mm 2 Modules can be arranged along the width of vehicle or height in the battery pack. Required Items inside the Vehicle:- Li Ion Charging Spot needs to be on the vehicle installed. Vehicle needs to include First Aid Box Mini Fire Extinguisher Vehicle Charging Point needs to be on vehicle { https://goo.gl/Ngp8KZ , https://goo.gl/5p7buC } Standard vehicle parts - Front head light {LED headlight}, Front Indicator, Tail Lights, Rear Indicator, brake pedal. Accelerator in the conventional 3 wheeler are along the handle.
Enclosure design for a building automation product
Our company is looking for enclosure designs for a set of 3 PCB modules which can connect together to form one single product. Our chosen manufacturer uses folded plastic sheet, although design ideas do not need to be limited to this process. The main board can feature as a standalone product but in many cases will be connected with the HV and I/O submodule boards, in which case they need to form a single product. There should be a lock-in mechanism on the side panels of the main enclosure to allow connection with HV board and I/O board. The Main board will have an LED panel illuminating the company logo (which will change colours based on the product status). Each individual enclosure should be DIN rail mountable. The top and bottom inputs and outputs modules on each board should be exposed so that appropriate connections can be made without opening the box. The way the three modules assemble together into one product should be similar to this: http://sie.ag/1E7emGo Beyond the technical specifications we are looking for a fresh design to take away the feel of an industrial product and make this looks more like a consumer product. We are looking for something sleek and fresh with the look and feel of a quality product.
Hotel Butler Robot
I am looking for an industrial design of a hotel butler robot with manufacturing specification. I would like an interchangeable face module - 1 with the mascot as the face, another with a screen as the face. Additionally the robot needs to have an interchangeable stand to make it taller like the Double ipad stand. http://www.doublerobotics.com/ Here are some of the specs the robot needs to possess so you can factor it into the design: Size: 56 x 35 x 35 cm Weight: 5-8kg with the majority of the weight at the bottom of the robot Exterior Components: • Rechargeable battery pad/station Interchangeable Modules: • Butler face head • Screen face head • Stand (Double Like) to extend height http://www.doublerobotics.com/ Internal Component: • 1080HD w night vision camera • 2W speaker with 22mm diaphragm • 1 microphone • 1HDMI output • 1USB output • 1SD card slot • Range finder sensors • Ground detection sensors • Object Detection sensors • 4 motors feedback control • Head rotation 2 Axes: 1st +/- 90°, 2nd +80°/-60° • Base Movement 360° (2 drive wheels, 3rd support wheel) • Electrical Rechargeable Battery • Wifi & SIM Card Deliverable: 1) Butler Robot looking mostly like the attached mascot with an interchangeable screen module and rechargeable pad design 2) Adjustable height stand – see Double for reference 3) Video showing its movement and interchangeable module in order to show to the client 4) Manufacturing specifications
