CNC Machined Bottle OpenerBlind

in CAD Design held by CloudNC
Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Hello designers!

CloudNC is running a competition to produce CAD for a CNC machined bottle opener that we can produce in-house and hand out as gifts to investors, staff and visitors.

It should be 3-axis machinable (milling only), designed for manufacture (no incredibly tight radii e.g. or internal corners), and look contemporary.

You can recommend a material. Multiple parts/materials are acceptable if pretty trivial to assemble, e.g. with a standard M-thread screw.

If you have any questions please get in touch.

Good luck!
Designs will be evaluated based on:
- Modern/contemporary aesthetics.
- Functionality - it must reliably and safely open beer bottles.
- Creativity - is it relatively unique versus bottle openers most people have come across?
- Manufacturability - it must be CNC machinable (milling) in a reasonable amount of time.
- Size - it should fit in a pocket.
- Logo - it should have our logo engraved or embossed somewhere.

If you think we're not being creative enough and have an idea for an awesome machinable knick-knack that isn't a bottle opener, please also submit. There are multiple prizes, and we can award an additional first-prize size reward for something inspiring that we go on to manufacture.

STEP and solidworks or onshape is preferred.
Don't Wants:
Unmachinable geometries or things made on a lathe.
Company Logo:
Additional Information
Re the logo, only the symbol is required, NOT the word CloudNC...

#39 Prootional Bottle Opener - CloudNC - Quentin Margeot by Quentin Margeot
Hi CloudNC,
Here's my take on your project. I spent quite some time trying to figure out something that stands out of the ordinary, and I think you'll like what I came up with. I attached a presentation to make it easier to understand my proposition, as well as fabrication drawings and the STEP file of the assembly.
I'd really like feedback, whether you like the idea but need some things changed, or even if it's fine for you and you want me to dig further into the design to go on to manufacture.
Good luck unpiling all the designs and have a great week,

CloudNC logo is screen printed at the upper face for less machining and win time.

#130 HEX RIPPER M8 by William Liisberg
The HEX RIPPER M8 is the ultimate bottle opener!
It can open every beer you throw at it, even at midnight.
The singe body bottle opener has 3 features. It can open bottle caps, measure distances, with the build-in ruler, and loosen or tighten metric bolts & nuts ranging from M8 to M3.
It is designed in such a way the inner hex spanner pattern can be cut out with a 3mm end mill.
There are 0.5 mm chamfers on every edge, except for the ruler edge which is 0.1 mm. If you do some clever work holding you should be able to chamfer the other side in the same setup using a back chamfering tool.
Best Regards
William Liisberg

#33 Bottle Opener by Shenoma Design Works
I did some research and see the company is a machine shop, so I made an opener that resembles a face mill. Under the mill, in the center is the bottle opening tongue. Hope you like it.
Nov 2, 2019 22:10
This is my first rough suggestion. If you want some adjustments, say and I'll try. I will be glad for your suggestions.

#67 CloudNC Bottle Opener - C by Martin Arguello
I keeped focus on using design resources that exploit the machining processes and show the quality of them, for example, machining of complex surfaces and smooth transitions, emboss and carve, low dimensional tolerance and precision, and added a third part to show the diversity of materials that can be machined (Aluminium, hard plastic and wood in this design).
I also gave it a personal card feeling and made all parts one-side milling.
The fixing of the pieces would be carried out by means of three rivets.
Any modification and improvement you consider let me know.
Feedback is always welcome,

#93 EM Bottle Opener by Shenoma Design Works
Didn't like the face mill, how about an end mill? If the issue was manufacturability, this one is much easier than the face mill. The bottle opener is on the bottom face.

Disregard Number 93, use this one instead. Had forgotten the company logo.

#135 Sharky by praveen_designs
This Opener is inspired by shark design. It is made in 2 parts which are held together with the help of two m3 socket head screws. The design is made into two parts to provide datum to each part.
The design is unique in itself. If you need anything else, please feel free to reach out.

#142 The Woman bottle opener by Ricardo Forattini Ramalho
This bottle opener is the same shape and size as a credit card.
It can easily be carried in a wallet like a card.
Also can be used like a keychain.
This rectangular cut-out with the hollow corners at one end was designed to hold the napkin.
Innovative? No way.
But it has a different design from traditional bottle openers and It is easily machined on a 3 axis CNC cutter in a short time.

Thu, 07 Nov 2019 20:27:32 +0000
when you say "multiple parts" do all parts have to CNC machined?

Dear Sir,

Thanks for your response, Sir, we are providing hole as an OPTIONAL, we can remove it as per your necessity.

Thank You.

FYI the design does not necessarily need a hole to allow it to be put on a keychain.
