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

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 :)

Hello All,

Just to clarify this is an enclosed 3D printer. Please reach out to me with any questions and I will respond ASAP.

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, do you have a specific software or file type in mind for both the model and renderings?
Thanks!

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 :)

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.

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 ?

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).
Ice Pack Designs
Need unique designs in various sizes for ice packs. Small – .75lbs – 4.25″ x 6.25″ x 1.25″ Medium – 1.5lbs – 6.75″ x 7.75″ x 1.25″ Large – 2.5lbs – 7.5″ x 9.5″ x 1.25″ Extra Large – 5lbs – 10.925″ x 8.661″ x 1.85″
New Pizza Slicer
we have created a new pizza slicer. This is a base wood board like a bread board with aa attached wire frame slicer which will cut the pizza into 8 slices like a cheese slicer. I attach a drawing of the product and require a realistic picture of the product which we can use to do some further market research to receive comments on the product and registration for future information on the product when launched. This is a very small project which should require no more that 2 hours drawing. Hopefully there will be further projects as the product is fianlised and produced.
