Description:
Hello:

My name is Jeff and I am producing lighter cases/sleeves. I would like to know if you can produce a 3D vector form from picture images (jpegs). I need the image in STL format for prototype.

The image (2 Sides) needs to be in RAISED RELIEF/SCULPTED so its dimensions can be felt by the user. Each side is somewhat small so the scupt does not need excessive detail.

I can send patent pend. pics for possible approval.

Thank you
Jeff
Wants:
3D STL file format
Software:

Hello everyone
I am grateful for several submissions, many look very close to what I am looking for.
But please be aware I need the winner of final design in STL.
Thanks again, I am very grateful

Hi Guys,
I just added a new attachment.
There needs to be two images (the lady and the lettering)
Thank you

I have the sleeve/case measurements, I just need the Lady image placed on the sleeve so you can feel the contours of her body. I want the user/owner of the case to "feel" the shape of the lady figure including her hair and body. Also, I have the name (raised letters) of the lady that also needs to be placed/created in RAISED RELIEF/SCULPTED on the OPPOSITE side of the lighter.

The lighter case/sleeve measurements are as follows
Length 3 inches
Width 1 inch
Thickness 1/2 inch

Do you by chance have a back side that we can make an actual sleeve or do you want a onesided sleeve with a wrap around grip or some type of a clamp like structure?

Please check attached 3D pdf and comment if this is 3D model type you would like to produce - what is the height of the trace - I used 0.5 mm (also for the thickness I used 0.5 mm). Do you need to have trace attached on solid (filled) base (like on the first test design I submitted) or this stand alone trace ("transparent") is enough?

@Amir Perle

I need the picture sculpted/raised relief onto
the lighter case/sleeve. I am manufacturing the
case/sleeve to fit a standard Bic lighter.
Those dimensions are as follows
3 and 1/4 inches in length
1 inch in width
1/2 inch in thickness width

Yes a 3D contour trace is necessary
Nothing dug into material

The 3D Production is just a CAD software. I just need the image
Rendered in RAISED RElIEF/SCULPTURED in STL format.

Attach email and I can send more detailed measurement

Please use this line trace / basic 3D model I attached to give us some more details about how part should look like (do you want to "dig in to" the material or you want to have like 3D contour trace etc.)...

Hello,
I believe you have to give us the dimensions of the lighter, in order to get an stl for production, or else you'll just get a concept design. (there are a lot of different lighters in the market)
Thanks,

Hi,
just a few questions: do you need us to model just a girl or do you need lighter case also? Can you give us approximate dimensions (width and length)? I presume relief must follow curvature of the lighter or?

Hi Jeff,

Is 3D production a type of CAD software? Or do you mean any CAD software that will work for production. If that's the case, I strongly recommend AutoCAD/SolidWorks as most manufacturers can go into production with those.

Thanks,
MacKenzie

Small waterproof weather sensor housing
The project is to develop a small waterproof weather monitoring button which will include a UV, humidity and temperature sensors. The button will be pairing with a mobile phone for transmitting data. This button could be used both at the beach to monitor UV exposure but also in house for room climate monitoring, We need a small electronic and sensor enclosure with the following specs: 1) Button or other (rectangular/cube/etc) similar shape 2) Small dimensions to host a 15mm x 25mm x 3mm PCB 3) Include a coin battery with an option of easy access for replacement 4) The enclosure/product should have a small protected whole for a humidity/temperature sensor (not more than 2mm diameter) 5) Include a UV sensor so access to light is needed 6) Include a Power switch/button 7) Include a led for indicating operation 8) Include a robust belt clip (or other removable clip, or/plus a magnet) built into the design 9) Waterproof design 10) A trendy design aesthetically pleasing as possible 11) we need the source solidworks files for printing on our 3D printing We intent to further work with the winning designer so as to fine-tune the design after initial testings
Baby wipes case
A travel baby wipes case with two snap clip mechanisms. One to open the case to reload the wipes and another on top to access the wipes. The design should be as flat, sleek and as close to dimensions as possible. Various prints will be added so design should consider how a print may be interrupted or warped. A small loop needs to be added where desired for a lanyard to attach the case to bags strollers etc. Dimensions should be as close to W:120mm H:21mm D:30mm. The design should not infringe on internal compartment for wipes so the case can be closed easily. Potential for future projects for winner.
Quick Access Sun Stations
Quick Access Sun Stations is a self service sunscreen station placed throughout outdoor venues such as theme parks, water parks, state parks, zoo's, golf courses, ski resorts, etc. The Quick Access Sun Stations provides sunscreen through a hand held device (think of a spray tanning gun) which the customer will direct and spray on themselves, in the areas where they need skin/sun protection. The station will be a 4' square footprint with hand held devices placed equal distances around the station. There should be enough space for 4 customers at a time, allowing application of sunscreen to the skin that is exposed. The machine is equipped with a method to accept credit card or mobile payments (via a mobile scan or entry of a confirmation code). The station needs to allow the customer to select the level of sunscreen protection they want (there will be 2 protection levels). Sunscreen will be stored in 2 different reservoirs which is contained internal to the unit. I am looking for a product design encompassing the features I outlined above. I would like to see a prototype of the machine mock-up, both the external (what the customer will see) and internal (what the sunscreen servicer will see). In the mock-up a small divider between stations (to prevent overspray) and a matt under the entire unit to prevent slipping should be visible. The stations will require power, access either under the machine or some place that doesn't limit the space for the number of hand held devices. A self powered station would be ideal but not sure it is entirely feasible.
Einsteins Training Paws
Concept: Create a device with the ability for a dog to put his paw on six different areas. Embedded in the pad or mat are proximity switches. As the dog places their paw in each area both words, i.e. Drink, Eat, Outside, Love Me, Play and Leave Me Alone are played along with an accompanied dog sound, background noise (or Bark, etc). They include: 1. Drink 2. Eat 3. Outside 4. Love 5. Play 6. Leave me alone I would also link up via marketing with the current paw treat dispenser (marketing relationship), some have dual cameras so u can see them and they can see u and u can electronically send them a treat. https://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/store/product/petcube-bites-interactive-wi-fi-pet-camera-and-treat-dispenser/3342848?skuId=62817813&enginename=google&mcid=PS_googlepla_nonbrand_pet_online&product_id=62817813&adtype=pla&product_channel=online&adpos=&creative=223560994791&device=m&matchtype=&network=g&mrkgadid=3245052790&mrkgcl=609&rkg_id=0&utm_campaignid=71700000037121734&utm_adgroupid=58700004139975561&targetid=92700034063773421&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIiYPHiaGt6AIVCmKGCh2ClQB_EAQYAyABEgK17PD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds Imagine a hybrid of a puppy dispensing system above with the Einstein Training Pad.
