Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
  • Open
  • Choosing Finalist
  • Ended
Submit 10 OnShape assembly files (each pair of glasses must have a unique front part but should have the same arms)

Each one should be a different style (See attached photos for styes.)
(1)Cat eye
(1)Other - be creative!

Submit 5 renderings of each pair with clear and dark lenses (10 renderings total) with the following views:
*45 degrees
*side view

This design must be easy to modify. The workflow and feature organization of the parts is as important as the final shape.

The following two measurements should be driven by a single variable in OnShape:
*the width of the glasses
*the bridge of the glasses
These two dimensions should DRIVE the width of the frames. When the width of the frame changes its shape should scale uniformly to accommodate the change.

See the attached picture for a better explanation. You can submit your glasses with dimensions anywhere in between the max and min. Just make sure the glasses still look good at the max and min sizes. (Scale all dimensions down by 20% for kids glasses)

Arms and Hinges
**please keep these designs the same for all of the glasses.

The straight part of the arm should also be driven by a variable. Keep the curved part by the ear the same. "picture" example: ___/ will be lengthened to look like _____/

The hinge design should be based on the attached picture. However, there should be countersinks on the top and bottom of the hole to accommodate this screw with a 6mm shaft length.

Please use the "hole feature" when designing the hole and countersinks so they can be modified later if needed. These do not need to be driven by a variable.

Lastly, these will be plastic hinges, the nose pads should be part of the plastic frame and do not need to be easy to edit. (see picture)

Please feel free to reach out with any questions.

Thank you everyone for participating in the contest. I will most likely be posting another contest soon as 10 separate contests for each style of glasses. As I will make the instructions more explicit as I understand this is a somewhat unusual design challenge.

Yes, you can use AutoDesk Fusion 360. Just make sure everything is simple to edit.

Can we use AutoDesk Fusion 360?

Hello everyone,

I have had multiple requests to extend the contest. I asked Cad Crowd to extend it and I am currently waiting to hear back.

Hi Pablo Gosso,

I am aware of the IP problems with OnShape. I would also be fine with Solidworks as well.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Hi Caleb. The problem os using ONSHAPE Free is that all the files are from public domain, so basically any NDA or intelectual property is void.
I have used ONSHAPE Free for other project and the files remains as public domain.
You can do what you want on Solidworks, if you build the model correctly since it is a parametric CAD software you can change Bridge and glass width by just changing 2 dimensions as your specs. If you can change the specs of this project to allow Solidowrks users, I'm sure many more people will be ready to work on it. Best Pablo.

Please do NOT upload STL files. Those files simply contain the 3D information of the part without any of the sketches or features used to build the part. If you are going to use solidworks sign up for a free OnShape account and make sure that it is possible to edit the required dimensions. These are custom eyeglasses so each one I make will have different dimensions.
Sun, 08 Sep 2019 12:45:15 +0000
I believe if you upload a file in .stl format you would be able to modify dimensions same as if you created the file in OnShape?

Re the hinge part - is there a diameter for the hole? Thanks

To answer peoples questions about using solidworks: the reason I choose OnShape is its variable features. This allows you to use code to change dimensions and generate multiple STL permutations of a part. I am not aware that there is a good way to do this with solidworks. If you find a way then feel free to use solidworks and just send me a quick message on how to modify the dimensions programmatically.

I Use Solidworks 2016 for modeling. I can send you the 3d files to open in Onshape.
but they will be actually be modelled in solidworks.
are you alright with it?
Sat, 07 Sep 2019 12:39:09 +0000
can we use solidworks??

Hi Martin,

I would say the rendering quality should be high enough to look sharp on an HD screen, or even a 4k screen if possible.

What rendering quality do you need? DPI, resolution? A PSD with levels layers and masks would be helpful?

Product and electronic design needed for tiny wearable accessory
I'm looking for a designer knowledgeable in electronics to design the product with the smallest dimensions possible. The product is a small wearable that vibrates according to set time intervals. It can be worn as a bracelet or necklace by attaching it with a simple clasp. The user presses the button to cycle between time intervals (5,10,15,30, or 60 minutes). Haptic feedback to let user know which one was chosen. Long button press = turning off and on the product with feedback to let user know if the product is on or off Rechargeable battery with USB or coin battery depending on which one can provide smaller size. Water resistant casing. Similar product on the market: The biggest difference between this project and the existing product linked is the design (i want it to be much smaller), and the ability to change time intervals.

Design Concept Contest for Fashion Face Shields - $500 In Rewards
IN search of several unique face shields (NOT face mask) designs. Not necessarily for essential workers but rather for everyday use to go to the movies, out to eat or to a concert. Basically, something that people can be ok with wearing in public. We are not looking for a simple face shield design that you can currently find on Amazon, Ebay or Etsy. We are LOOKING FOR DESIGN CONCEPT AND DIGITAL SKETCH that is of your creation To help provide some insight, attached are the submissions which we received but weren't quite good enough. You may use those to come up with alternative design inspirations. Preferably something more fashionable. Again, please don't ask us for a concept. That is up to you. Should you feel comfortable with this project, please apply below. We are looking to start ASAP with the right candidate
Sports Timing Transponder
We have designed a 2.4 GHz transponder that is used for sports timing. We require a plastic housing to be designed for this small wearable device. The PCB has a solar cell on one side and a small 40 mAh LiPo battery on the other. The transponder is used in running, cycling and Triathlon type events, so we need it to be completely waterproof, we prefer that the unit is ultrasonically welded to form a hermetically sealed product. The transponder will need to worn by runners, attached to bicycle forks, attached onto ankle straps, etc. An approach we would like to take with the design is to allow for the transponder itself to have a minimalistic design with a universal mounting option that allows for it to be attached to a separately designed Bike mount, or wrist strap. Ie: the Bike Mount would be a separate design that cable ties (zip ties) to the front fork of a bicycle, then the transponder clips onto or locks into the bike mount. This would allow for future designed mounting accessories, while keeping the transponder design standard. The design considerations include: - The housing must be completely waterproof (Hermetically sealed). We would prefer that the unit is sealed with ultrasonic welding. - We use a solar cell on the top of the PCB to charge the small LiPo battery, so there should be a transparent section in the housing to allow for light to reach the solar cell so that the LiPo remains charged. I have attached an image of the transponder as well as an STL file of the PCB Assembly. We can send further information and output files as required.
Wearable Pill Storage and Managment
Hi Everyone! We are excited to see what the community comes up with! Thank you for your amazing designs. Please let me know if you have any questions. Overview: In essence, it's a bracelet that holds multiple days worth of a medication and has some of our custom hardware in it. (hardware is roughly .5" by .75", but will become smaller in the future). Please see sketches for further information Design: We would like to be able to store different types of pills in different parts of the bracelet. I've included some very rough concepts of my own, but I am by no means a designer or artist and need help figuring out the best way to do this. The CAD image is something that I quickly made for a first prototype a while ago. It is inefficient in terms of storage and very clunky - not what we are going for. An innovative design is the primary thing that we are looking for. We aren't particularly concerned at this point in time if it has fancy waves on the outside, crystals, or beveled edges. It is still important for the bracelet to be aesthetic, but the "jewelry" aspect of this can be done at a later time. It is far more important that we maximize the number of pills that it can hold without having a massive and uncomfortable bracelet. Furthermore, one concept that we are considering is to have a core bracelet that has our hardware in it and then supplementary 'bands' of the medication. We are open to other design options if you think you have something more optimal! If you only have one medication, then there either would only be one band or there can be place holder pieces/blanks that would go in the places if you were to have multiple medications. Mechanisms: Access to the pill should be fairly user friendly. I've thought about many different designs, all ranging from individual compartments with covers, one large cover that snaps over, a sliding cover, and even a spring loaded mechanism that pushes out the pills one at a time. I understand that it will be a bit more difficult to make this bracelet compact. Ideally it would hold 1 weeks worth of medication. With that being said, it would be even better if the bracelet held multiple medications, but that is more pills. Pills: The type of pill is something that we're currently working with. The larger pills are about 22mm in the greatest dimension. Most pills are circular or oval shaped. The median is approximately 15 mm. Things like birth control, heart medication, seizure medication, etc.
