3D Printer DesignBlind

in Homeware Design held by Caleb
Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
We are an early stage 3D printing startup looking for a concept to use in our pitch deck. There will likely be continued work opportunities with the winner.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Style:

Sleek and minimalistic. No screen, just a power button. You can go for an ultra-modern design (apple) or a retro-futuristic 50's design (Jetson's TV show). Use the color scheme in the attached company logo.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dimensions:

**Print area must be 300mm wide by 200mm deep by 200 mm tall.

**There needs to be an extra .02 cubic meters of room for electronics and
other components either beneath the print area or behind it.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Other:

**The front, right, and left sides should be all or mostly gray acrylic glass. Everything else should be solid. (leave the top 70mm solid to hide the extruder and motors)

**Modeling motors and extruder is not necessary!

**The print bed must move up and down so it needs one screw and two guiding rods behind it. (see attached picture)

**Include the company logo somewhere on the printer.
Wants:
20% Practicality: Follow the instructions, the dimensions and make sure this is something we can turn into a real product. Bonus points for modeling individual components and panels. Please message me with any questions.

30% Rendering: We plan to show this image to investors and it is crucial that we look professional.

50% Originality: Standing out from the crowd is very important. Look at other 3D printers (formlabs, Ultimaker) for inspiration but make sure that your design catches people's eye while standing out from the crowd.
Company Logo:
Yes

#14 AVA 3D Printer (Alternative) by CBee18
Hi Caleb,
I have taken a different approach this time.
This version uses a clamshell style opening, allowing unrestricted access to the finished print.
Again, any revisions needed to the design, let me know!

#18 AVA 3D Printer Concept by rpreston
Hello!
I tried to keep my design fairly simplistic yet good looking with its large windows for viewing and its overall aesthetic. The printer has a very premium look with acrylic glass all around it and the large doors in the front. The button is also in a convenient spot while keeping with the color scheme and modern look. I did not include any renders of the sides and back because there is not much to see there, however I would be happy to get those for you if you like. If you have any questions or would like me to change anything please message me and I will try my best to help. I hope you like the design!
Thanks!

Thank you all for your submissions. I'm honestly amazed at how great these turned out. Any printer with a 4+ star rating was better than what I was expecting! I will pick a winner by tomorrow. If you would like personal feedback please message me after I pick the winner.

Hi Preston,

I understand it's tricky to describe. It will be fully enclosed and the front, left, and right, sides will be/have windows. Google the ultimaker 3D printer to get a sense of what I am talking about. I would also like the windows to not go all the way up to the top so the extruder and motors can be hidden from view. Please reach out with any questions, I will respond ASAP.

Thank You,

Caleb

Hello again! Just to clarify, by enclosed do you mean that it will have glass, see through walls on all sides except the front which is open, or would you like a door on the front so that it can be fully enclosed during a print? Sorry about the confusion, just wanting to make sure :)

Hi Preston,

I do not have a preference on the software. Something that is commonly used would be nice but it isn't very important.

Hi Sachit Chawla,

Great question, I believe something around 3cm-4cm of clearance in all directions would be adequate.

Hello,
What clearances would you want between the print-bed and the external frame of the printer. Also between the extruder work area and top portion of printer body (so that the extruder can freely utilize the print-bed without touching the sidewalls of the printer)

Hi Rolly,

It is an addition type printer. The main focus at this point is more on the design of the printer rather than the technical details. I don't particularly like the design of this printer but I am looking to have the extruder hidden in a similar fashion.

Hi Poorvesh Mistry,

Don't worry about modeling the extruder or filament holder. Also for the volume, the size is not important as long as it is roughly a normal rectangular shape. If you wish to model the motors and power screws they will be similar to a Prusa I3. As for the large printbed I believe a cantilevered bed will work. A head that moves in the x y and z-direction seems like it would be trickier to design but if you think it's doable I am open to see the design :)
Tue, 02 Oct 2018 23:59:03 +0000
How does the printer work or how do you wish the printer to work? Is it a addition (e.g. injection, welding) or deduction type.
Tue, 02 Oct 2018 19:57:37 +0000
Hi, I believe you are interested in a FDM type of 3D printer, just need some clarification on "There needs to be an extra .02 cubic meters of room for electronics and other components either beneath the print area or behind it." you have defined volume, rather could you define length x width x depth, what is the size of motor and power screws ?
A suggestion, with a printer to print so large size (heavy model) that to on a cantilever bed, it would be better to have a static bed and moving print head, which has a static weight and lower than the printed model with bed. Where would you like to have filament holder and the filament loading motor ?

Similar Contests on Cad Crowd

Kitchen Waste Rack
Purpose is to make this an injection molded plastic item. Looking to get some CAD designs that include the core structures, which are: (a) precise top loop [that holds a slightly stretched plastic garbage bag], loop cutout is preferred, but optional if necessary. Loop Circumference: 28.5 inches. Can be irregular shape.; (b) bottom holder to support bag contents and hold roll of bags with some dispensing assistance to keep roll in center; and (c) a vertical component to maintain the precise distance from top and bottom components. Height 15.25 Inches; (d) two side hooks that hold a shopping bag in lieu of fitted bag. - The top and bottom can have individual mounting via 3-4 mm screws. - The unit would be best as a 2-3 piece construction for smaller shipping /retail box. - item must support appx 15 lbs distributed through top ring and bottom support. - reference www.extrufix.com for info and watch installation video for product views. - My sketches of a potential design are attached: "Sketch_1" and "Sketch_2". This is provided as an example only. - current, actual retail product designs attached: 2 wire plans and 1 retail package artwork. Other current product images and drawings are attached. Note: our company is interested in selling garbage bags that fit the rack. This is the critical mission. The shopping bag hooks are a minor feature that we include for a minority of our users.
Coffee Grinder
Our company is developing a new high-end coffee grinder and seeking design ideas. This coffee grinder will be a bit unusual - it is meant for making single cups of coffee or espresso at a time, and turns at a slower RPM than usual. This results in less static causing coffee grind retention in the grinder, as well as less heat build up which may affect coffee flavor. Please use one of the motor designs here: Without terminal box (raw lead wires): https://catalog.orientalmotor.com/item/bh-series-single-phase-ac-motors/200w-bh-single-phase-ac-motors/bhi62f-3-6 With terminal box: https://catalog.orientalmotor.com/item/bh-series-single-phase-ac-motors/200w-bh-single-phase-ac-motors/bhi62ft-3-6 The grinder needs to be angeled 30-45* with the coffee entry at the top, and motor mounted upwards from the bottom. The motor mounts to the face of the grinder which connects to the rotating grinding burr inside of the grinder body. The top of the grinder has mount holes for the top grinding burr which does not rotate, and is used to adjust the space between the burrs by screwing the top in or out. This adjusts coffee grind size. There should be a small coffee chute coming out of the body where the coffee would fall onto the 45* plane beside the bottom burr and out of the chute. Reference products (All use common angled, single coffee dose design): https://www.kafatek.com/index.php/monolith-titan-flat-burr-espresso-grinder/ https://lynweber.com/products/eg-1/ https://www.versalab.com/COFFEE.html There are 3 main parts to the design: Top screw on body part / adjustment ring / where coffee is poured in Main body that the top screws into and motor mounts again bottom of. Coffee exists this main body through chute. Legs / stand for the grinder (plus power cable, on/off button)
Mompreneur needs 3D Drawings to rid the world of boring highchairs!
Our mission is to rid the world of boring highchairs & messy cleanups, one meal at a time! I need 3D drawings of two different styles of placemats that will custom fit the world’s most popular high chair – the IKEA Antilop high chair. They’ll be made from silicone FDA approved food-grade silicone. The drawings will assist with create product moulds in China. See attached file for dimensions - although I'd prefer to work with someone who has this exact high chair in their home (as it's difficult to communicate dimensions of edges and corners). Would also like to letterpress logo into design (see attached for example).
