Simple Re-design of Front Cover HousingBlind

in 3D Modeling Design held by Boxborough
Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
We are looking to redesign the front cover only of our housing. The cover should keep the same dimensions so it still snaps into and works with the back housing. The back housing will be an industrial white. The front housing will be clear. See the sketch concept (MRX design version 2 - Setra file) file to see what we are moving to.

We want to move away from the curved look of the front cover in favor of a flat face with a bezel (see the BAPI product for inspiration). The sticker label will have a rectangle cutout where a new, larger backlit display will be featured. The sticker will have a slight industrial texture to it.

Please note we are considering adding a blue LED inside the housing to illuminate the clear edges of the front cover housing. Please try to mockup up the product with and without a blue light glow. Please also have a backlight effect on the display. All entries should be on a white or transparent background.

Attached are current CAD files. Note the front cover will now have a flat face, the back housing will not change except for the color which will be safety/industrial white. Also attached are images of our current product (the MRX) and competitor products. We like the BAPI design the best.

One final note, we also wanted to change the locking hinge to have more of a rounded shape instead of the squared shape. We also want to add a small hole in the latch (and a new hole in the back housing) for a small cotter key type lock or set screw.

Thanks and I am happy to provide clarification.
We want this new cover to have a more modern industrial look to it. We will be evaluating the look and polish of the finished design. We want the design to look realistic. The front cover needs to have a flat face and a slight bezel. It also needs to still fit on the back housing.
Don't Wants:
New concepts that won't fit on the current back housing.

#25 BKD Front Cover by Bruno CADET
Here's my ideas.
Leds will diffuse in an acrylic panel (laser cutted). So just engraving this panel to make details highlighted.
I added a key lock but not the target inside yet.
Let me know if you're satisfied with that.
It's a pleasure.

#34 Front Cover by Jeff Mosley
Hello, I have submitted several renderings illustrating a design I think you will like. I have included multiple angles which allow you to view the hole in the side wall for a locking pin/set screw. I have also include angles which allow you to see the new and improved rounded hinge design. My design incorporates the flat face with a slightly beveled edge as well as industrial used plastic textures that give the housing a more polished/finished touch but also keep inline with standard industrial materials. I have also included versions with and without an blue LED glow through the semi transparent side wall of the front cover. I hope you like the design. Let me know if there are any changes I can add.

#3 MRX Rob Chicken version by Steersman
You asked for an industrial look. That gives quite a wide scope, but it made me think about some of the older instruments with swinging needles. Ideal for a Hi-Lo range display. You can get a quick idea just by looking at the angle of the needle.
Anyway, I hope you like it.
If you need the model I can convert it to IGES and send it through.

To all designers: Please be sure to look at the file "MRX design version 2-Setra". Please incorporate a larger display versus what we have today. Please also make sure the designs include the lower blue wave part.

@Bruno CADET - We'd like to keep the back housing as is, but we'll certainly consider internal hinges to see how it looks. Thanks for asking!

I well understood you don't want to modify the back housing.
Just, is it possible to put hinges inside it. We'll get more esthetic

Design a gas powered compact weapon
This gadget is for arm to arm combat, for military use. It is a Carbon Dioxide powered punching tool that will dispense its gas load into the recipient of the punch. James Bond would have one of these discreetly hidden for any unexpected fight :) The 25 gram CO2 gas canister is housed in a metal sleeve that is held in the palm of the hand, there is a hollow blade that protrudes out between the middle fingers that dispenses the gas. The finish can be stainless steel, aluminum, cold steel, anything that looks good. The arrow head is interchangeable. The canister is pierced by a hollow pin on the top of the inside vessel. If this could be 3D printed that would be great.
