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?

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

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.

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.
New product line for site furnishings manufacturer
We have recently purchased an older site furnishing manufacturer and would like to introduce a new and more modern product line. http://street.woodcraftdesignltd.com/ Please feel free to visit the current website to see our existing products. We primarily want a Park Bench Waste and recycling receptacle A lighted bollard Later on adding a Poster Pillar and a Bike rack Our chosen new line will be put into production and therefore will need to be Modern,lightweight but durable,as maintenance free as possible and not too complicated to manufacture and assemble. In our existing product we use the following materials Steel and Aluminum for structure Cedar, Ipe and Oak for seating Our most popular bench size is 1800mm We would like to incorporate composite materials for a seating option (bearing in mind we have had issues with composite sagging in heat We would like to compete with companies such as Maglin and Wishbone Our existing products do not have any CAD drawings included and this makes it more difficult for us to be specified in by landscape architects. We are not sure exactly what they require and any guidance in that would be appreciated.
