As a commercial photographer I was getting sick of this DIY Photo Booth market. So I've spent the past 2 years prototyping different products to combine to make a reliable product for the market. While doing this we built a company that would let our products be tested in the real world.

We will be as detailed as possible, if you need any more info please send me a mail.

What we are looking for:

We want to build a product that is innovative, stylish, light weight, collapsable yet durable.  We want a unit that is free standing and curtain-less. I would love a stainless steel or aluminum face, but are open to other ideas. We don't want the end product to break the bank when it comes to manufacturing so would like materials to be widely available. 

Height - We would like the unit to be at its tallest 70" would like it to have removable sections so height could vary.

Free standing

Collapsable/mobile - END GOAL would love for the entire unit to break down in to ONE 1650 Pelican Case.

Simply assembly - would like this process to go quick, maybe pins/magnets/dovetails maybe power integration from base to components. 

Durable - This unit will be on the go, seeing 50-60 party's a year, thats 10,000 - 50,000 potentially drunk people a year and would love to get at least 5 years from it.

Stream line - think of apples clean cut designs, would love for it to feel simple, not threatening.

Products: Specs Available online or upon request.

HITI 510L Printer - needs side access for paper and ink, can only print on a angle of up to 30 degrees, would love for paper to come out on the front under/lower then the screen. the printer can be removable or bolted to unit. (consider break down)

Windows surface tablet - needs to be accessible for touch screen, needs to be mounted flush or minimal clearance for clean design. needs access to power and usb ports from the back.

Camera - standard DSLR camera. would like to have a 77mm UV filter mounted for the camera to touch up against. a dovetail plate would be great to let the camera move back and forth for different lens (up to 8" of slide)

Lights - would like to place LED's and a flash tube on either side of the camera so we will need holes and diffusion plexi/plastic for this as well. we will most likely be making our own boards to mount so there aren't any specs on this yet.

Adjustable angle mount - would like it if the tablet/camera/light were mounted together with a potential of up to 20 degree horizontal tilt. (consider whats behind the faceplate, don't want gaps where fingers can get caught.

Additional Information

We only want to produce something thats original, please see scan of idea. We want it to be a free standing structure, don't worry about backgrounds, people will stand in front of it, with the horizontal tilt the camera can adjust size.

We have finalized our hardware, although we appreciate feedback, we have tested my products over the years. Looking forward to hear from you. Thank you.
We will be selecting the most innovative idea based on our criteria in the description.

Hello Mr.Gunasekar,

I'm a new designer to CADCROWD and have already designed what your photobooth could look like based on the requirements you have stated. I just wanted to inquire as to which version

of the surface pro are you planning on using?

This sounds fun. Are you only interested in a design or would you also like manufacturing drawings, I'm just trying to get an idea of the scope.
The interior dimensions for the 1650 case are 28.57x17.52x10.65 (for the other designers).
What do you envision the construction material being? How about final cost to build? I believe rubber isolators for the printer to help buffer some of that travel vibration (as you probably know printers are definitely not meant to travel) and with a body of bent 1/8 inch sheet aluminum would get you that high quality look and feel as well as giving you the rigidity to last 5 years of heavy use and even sustain a few tumbles caused by tipsy patrons, for the stand would you like to see telescoping tubing or fitted pipe?
I will work on something for you near the end of this week.
I look forward to hearing some of your feedback. Please forgive the typos that I am sure this message contains. I'm not so good on mobile.

Please, take a look into "Open Air Photo Booth" and "Think out side the box, a new take on photo booths. Innovation starts here." contests in cad crow.
Both contests are quite similar of the one you asked for, and I sent designs for them. If any of them looks promising to you, please, let me know and I may advance with the design

3D Product Design for Lipgloss/Lipstick Component
I need a 3d product design for a lipstick and lipgloss component that i am having made custom so i need a 3d concept design for the manufacturers to make the mold for this packaging. The shape of the component will resemble a crystal and very geometric. I will attach a photo of what i envision but just in 3d. Also the technology of the component is a push button pop up style, with a spring on the inside im assuming to have it released out and also clicked back in. Chanel's allure lipgloss/lipstick technology is exactly what im looking for. This is generally everything that i am looking for but feel free to be creative and go above and beyond in terms of the shape. Anything geometric and edgy looking i would love. I want this lipstick/lipgloss packaging to be very cutting edgy and modern. Very out there in style and eye catching. Just a rough concept design of the exterior shapes. I want a 3d design that you are able to spin and rotate around to see all edges and shape of it because the design i want will not be uniform all around. Thank you. Have fun with designing!
Modern and innovative cat tower
We are a small start up business focusing on bringing the outdoors inside for indoor cats. Indoor cats like to climb and feel safe when selecting a preferred level to perch at. Indoor cats like their outdoor cousins, need exercise, plants (especially grass) and access to view out of windows to keep them stimulated. If the cats requirements aren't enough of a challenge then the winning design must fit seamlessly with the ultra modern home interior. We invite you to submit your designs based upon shelves fitted to the ikea stolmen post, a floating shelf design or your own unique concept. Your design may be cat centric or multi purpose for both cat and pet parent.

'Less is more' to achieve minimal footprint during manufacturing - ideally restricted to aluminium cnc machining and bending. Have fun-- this is a competition that encourages ambition. After award, we will contact our chosen designer to enter R&D process with us + additional payment. Example: please view below as an ideal design, however, do not submit similar as this is a competitor. Optional inspiration:
Whiskey Globes
I’m looking for CAD designs of a spherical ice cube mold that depicts the world map. The mold will be produced using food grade silicone as they’ll be marketed as whiskey ice balls. The ice globes should be embossed with a world map and measure 2.5 inches in diameter including the embossment. The embossment should be raised enough so that the earth will not immediately melt away in a drink. I have attached pictures of 3D globes as well as the highest rated amazon product of its kind which is also linked below: If I've left out any details please feel free to contact me.
