Photo Booth

in Product Design held by Gunasekar Vaithanadasam
Contest Closed

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.

#6 Photo Booth by LickuidCAD
I've put together the photo booth and the design meets all your specifications. Please find further details below;
1) For the body of the photo booth, I've gone with aluminium that has been painted in white and the overall finish of the end product is streamline and requires the assembly of 6 separate components which will snap into place. The overall height of the product is under 70" as well (please refer to IMAGE1)
2) Part No.1 contains two separate compartments which are separately accessible. The top compartment contains the camera mounted on an 8" dovetail which will slide the camera into the mounted 77mm UV filter to protect the lens. There are two diffusion plastic panels on either side of the camera, and sufficient space beside the camera to place your LEDs and flash as required. This compartment also has a small opening into the bottom compartment for your wires and plugs. The bottom compartment will house the Windows Surface Tablet, which can slide into the joints on the frame giving a clean and fit look from the exterior. There is space on the right side of the tablet to plug-in the power and USB cables. This box can also house 3 plug points to power the system. The entire part is the side mounted onto the base structure via screw knobs which allow a > 20-degree rotation of the camera, LEDs & flash and the tablet. (Refer to IMAGE2)
3) The base structure consists of panels that fit into place, and give the freedom to adjust the booth to 3 different heights, which I believe with proper placement of the booth and angle of the camera is sufficient. The first panel (which connects to Part No.1) will have another slide-in panel behind it to hold the printer, and an opening has been placed on this panel so the pictures will come out from under the tablet display. This panel also shows off your company logo on the front. (Refer to IMAGE3)
4) Last but not least, I have tested that the entire system will fit into one standard Pelican 1650 case, by breaking it apart and placing it into a model of the case I created following the specified interior dimensions on their website.
Hope you find this design satisfactory, and of course, I am available to modify it and make any changes as you require before you start manufacturing your photo booth.
Looking forward to working with you.

#3 Panel Photobooth by Thomas_Chapman
This design is one that is comprised of 12 cut and bent metal sheets, each within the required internal dimensions of a 1650 pelican case, held together with aluminum bar stock, the bars hold threaded pins which allows the whole assembly to be collapsed and raised with the use of a single tool, these same threads and bolts also hold lateral platforms, providing both stiffness, and locations for the printer, camera, and surface tablet, all the while accommodating any wires behind the frame.
The design also allows for laser etched or screen printing around the sides and on the top hood, to add branding or signs where desired.
This product is designed with batch and one off production at it's core, parts can all be cut from the same thickness of aluminum, and bent to create the pop up booth, creating an efficient product where each part performs as many functions as possible without compromising usability.
Many thanks.

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

Small Animal Harness
I would like to have someone draw my basic cat harness for me with my very basic logo included. This harness should be fully adjustable with a snap buckle. The girth should adjust from 15 inches to 25 inches and the neck should adjust from 10 inches to 20 inches ( at the minimum ). Please note that I'm not sure if these dimensions are important as far as actually drawing the harness is concerned but I've included the dimensions to be as detailed as possible. I would like this harness to be a cloth material ( nylon ) but I would like the strip of fabric that connects the neck area to the girth area to be a leather material because I plan to personalize these harnesses. This product should be designed in black. I would like the width of the fabric to be no more than 2.5 cm and the thickness should be about 2 mm. The logo should be on a piece of fabric which includes two paws and the words BOBO New York.
Semi-Reusable Steel Water Bottle and Twist-Off Cap
The name of the bottle is Re-Fill It.
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.
