Design the World's Coolest & Most Advanced Sledge

in CAD Design held by Nic G
Contest Closed
Description:
To explore how far we can take the coolest design, the most advanced materials, and the most fun to be had on snow - I'm going to produce a limited number of graphene x carbon fibre x kevlar sledges.
This will be the first time those three incredible materials have been combined, and will produce the worlds most advanced and most expensive sledge.

I have the materials, facility, and team to make these, I just need the most awesome design!

**PRIZE** I have offered $200 for the chosen design - however I plan to launch a Kickstarter to fund the manufacture following completion. So I will also add an additional $400 for the winner if the Kickstarter is successful. You will also be invited to the launch event in Manchester, UK (if successful).
Wants:
A sledge is a device used to ride down a snow slope. But beyond that, think outside the box!

- The sledge must be a SINGLE PIECE, capable of holding at least one person sat upright and/or laid flat on their front.
- The final piece must fit within the dimensions of 1.5m x 1m x 0.5m.
- The final product will be made out of carbon fibre/kevlar/graphene resin lay up - so bear that in mind when creating your design.

I want this sledge to look beautiful, to be desired by the richest people on the planet, and also be pretty damn fast down a slope. So please be creative!

The design can use an additional handle if required, but if you can integrate a handle into your design, then even better.
Don't Wants:
Nothing too complex. Simplicity is key. If you think of Formula 1 - we want the beauty and simplicity of the side pods, not the complexity of the front wing.
Ask for Sample:
No sample required. We just want to turn our favourite design into reality.
Software:
  1. Any - just provide the final graphic/dimensions/etc

#16 Snow Shadow Lightweight by CBee18
Hi there, this is my alternative take on the brief (And much simpler!)
This is a one piece design with cutout details to remove weight, enhance the shape and add to the lightweight feel.
The top features textured rubber pads for grip and comfort.
Please feel free to give me any feedback, this is an initail concept so anything can be changed or amended.

#15 Snow shadow by CBee18
Hi there, this is my first take on the brief.
I went for a two piece bonded tub with adjustable satin finish aluminium handles and footrests.
The rails would be tipped with a metal rail for durability.
Please feel free to give me any feedback, this is an initail concept so anything can be changed or amended.

#13 High Performance Sledge Concept by DJohnson Design
This sledge concept incorporates lifting rails, much like that of offshore racing catamarans, that would keep the sledge and rider on top the snow minimizing contact surface area and drag. The outer, upper lip of the sledge functions as a grab rail without having to be assembled as a separate component. The pairing of concaved/convexed surfaces increase overall rigidity and would ensure a stiff form that lends itself well to maximizing performance.
With an infused carbon fiber and graphene layup, the sledge would weigh an estimated 2.5kg. The envelope of the design is 1.5 x 0.89 x 0.2m.
This shape maintains sufficient draft to be molded from a single tool. I could build plug, tools, and produces these as well.

#12 innovative snow sledge by singlecell
Hi sir.This a a innovative idea .The reason i told it innovative means a person can sit inside it and enjoy the ride .
so there is a support where they can hold for safety . and there is an safety for seat belts so they dont worry to for their safety.

#10 Sledge by Fred Flintstone
Fast, lightweight, suspension, steering by bending runners with hands/feet/legs. Weight can be less than 5kg, depending on manufacturing (5kg for 60% FVC CFRP with CFRP : Foam-Core = 40:60).

#7 SLD-4-001-01A by Carl Jackson
This snow sledge is a one piece design, made from Carbon Fiber. Parts of it can also be made from Kevlar. The sledge can be turned by leaning left or right, aided by curved outer edges on the runners. The bottom of the
runners are concaved downward, which acts as a shock absorber. The sledge weighs approximately 28.2 KGf.

#5 The Sledge by Fred Flintstone
The design is elegant, simple and efficient: a lightweight sledge with suspension, the ability to steer by bending the "horns" towards inside or outside with feet, legs, or hands, and good grip in curves. Fast rides guaranteed, with dampened shocks when landing a big jump.

CAD Creation For Cylindrical Planter
We're in the process of producing a size range of cylindrical indoor/outdoor planters and need a high-res STEP file to provide to potential manufacturers. This is a high-end homeware product so small details are important. We are open to any small design elements within the specified parameters that keep the product clean and minimal.
3D CAD Design Of A Dagger
I need a 3D CAD Drawing of a Dagger in a high-res STEP Format. It will be used for 3D Printing and also a graphite mold will be produced on a CNC Milling Machine. The mold will be used for casting silver. Attachment 1: Please follow this sample in regard to detail on the handle and the curves on the blade. Keep the length of the blade on the short side. This is a dagger......not a sword..

Bar
Open concept bar. I am looking at having a design made for construction/manufacturing with 3D CAD drawings done. I would also like 3D renderings done of this. The item being designed is a bar (the actual bar not the building). It will have overhead bottles hanging from the ceiling with two posts on either side of an open oval shaped bar (see through to both sides of the bar top) (essentially it will be like an oval kitchen island). There isn't a need for space behind/in the bar so the entire bar top will be white granite. The CAD drawing will show components inside/under the bar top such as beer racks and soda box dispensers. each post will have a single spout for soda dispensing. The attached file shows an idea of the bar but with the above modifications. 30 feet long oval bar 9 feet high. 44 in high bar top and hanging liquor at 9 feet.
Marijuana leaf for hood ornament
A simple marijuana leaf inside of a circle. This will be for a chrome hood ornament, so it should be "leaf-like" on both sides (3-D) with a ring around it and a one inch wide circular base under the ring where the leaf's base is. No colors necessary.
