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.
Wants: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.
Additional InformationRe the logo, only the symbol is required, NOT the word CloudNC...

Similar Contests on Cad Crowd
Hi! We would like to ask you for your help to create a new pen holder/organizer product for the market that will be made out of bamboo. Technical skill or experience with these elements would be helpful. We are looking for a high-quality design with optimum functionality. In the attached file, you can find some guidelines and some sample images for inspiration. We want to ask you to use this guide to design a product that is unique, hyper-functional, and pleasing to look at. After the design contest, we want to validate our concept and bring the snack organizer to production! Deliverables. All CAD drawings showing everything. Please provide full dimensions for each side/element of the design. Also, provide images showing clearly each side of the unit (top, bottom, front, back, sides.
Bamboo Kitchen Organizer
Hi! We would like to ask you for your help to bring our bamboo snack organizer from concept to reality. We are creating a new snack organizer product for the market that will be made out of bamboo and contain a lazy susan turntable mechanic to it. Technical skill or experience with these elements would be helpful. We want to develop a product that serves the higher end of the market. With quality material and a beautiful modern design. Currently, we already have a vision of what the organizer should look like, but we need to bring our idea's to 3D models that we can use to bring to production. We are combining elements of different products and will use these products as references to come up with a final design. For the overall design two products are almost being "thrust" together to get the initial design concept. And then other products are being used as a guide for the secondary details. There is a specific design in mind for the final product but everything needs to be brought together to ensure a high quality design and optimum functionality. In the attached file, you can find a design document with instructions and several example images of related products (with elements being merged). We want to ask you to use this guide to design a product that has the perfect look and feel. Please provide full dimensions for each side/element of the design. After the design contest, we want to validate our concept and bring the snack organizer to production!
"Hurt Feelings" - Sign Holder / Handles
***Summary/Background:*** This is a niche product for individuals in the car racing scene that is a single handed sign holder with bespoke slogans that the passenger will hold out the window after racing an opponent. Currently as per the pictures, I need something a little more than a wooden handle. Open to any and all ideas and design types in regards to the evaluation criteria below. Will be completing and building prototypes using a CNC mill and lathe, will require project to have STEP files or similar.
