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

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.

Firearms storage case
Hi, I need a 2D and 3D CAD design for a firearms storage case made out of a soft fabric such as canvas or ballistic nylon. My intention is to have something (drawing/rendering with dimensions) available to show a manufacturer so they understand what I want. I've attached a drawing of the case and it's dimensions. I'd like it to be padded (similar to a typical laptop case). It needs to have pouches on the outside for storage of pistol magazines, ammunition, etc. It also needs to have a shoulder strap and carry handles. The lid needs to be opened from the front of the case and "hinged" at the back. On the inside, the case should have some compartments divided by padded dividers (like a typical laptop case). I've attached some pictures of typical range bags that show examples of what I'd like. If it can have a military/law enforcement look to it it'd be great. The pouches can be Velcro or zippered closures. A dark gray color would be great for the case. Those are the basic requirements. I'll leave the rest of the design up to you. If you have any ideas to enhance it I'd appreciate it. Thank you, Carlos
