CAD Design of Lighter Prototype - 3D Vector Format

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
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:
  1. 3D Production

#5 Bitch-slap lighter - fitted over sleeve by Vedran Starcevic
Dear Jeff please find a new version of this part - I tried to model as much details as possible, I added color just for visual reference - the part can be modified further more as much you desire.
I attached 3D pdf so you can inspect part - STL or any other format available if contest won. Please do not hesitate to contact me via comments for any additional info.

#1 Ligher case by Vedran Starcevic
Please use this line trace / basic 3D model 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.)

#2 G3D lighter case #2 by Vedran Starcevic
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?

#3 Lighter sleeve by Dual2

Slightly different approach to your request from the other entries.
I have created a flat STL format for the Girl and Text.
Also created an actual sleeve in STL format to fit over the lighter case.
If you require other cad formats please let me know.

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

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?

@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

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

Interchangeable Battery Adapter Holster Pack - Industrial CAD Designer
Hello, I need someone to help me make a interchangeable battery clip adapter where these Ryobi batteries (found from Home depot) clip into each other as seen in picture It must be able to maintain enough room and functionality where the electrical terminals make proper contact. The batteries in the picture are laid out exactly how I want it to clip into each other. Just fill in the space between the battery with the housing that I need for you to design. I also need an access port about 7mm in diameter. The designer must already have access to these batteries which are common from home depot.

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
