in Product Design held by James S
Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
As seen in the sketchup images, this rectangular clip functions as a wallet and clips onto the opening of a front pants pocket (an example is shown in photo's). I need YOUR help in finding an ergonomic & functional solution to securing a car key FOB to the clip as well as sourcing pro CAD files that can be sent to a CNC machining facility.
Wants:
The entire length should be between 6" & 6.5" inches in length (no longer in order to accommodate average pocket depth). 1/2" wide and approximately 1/32" deep.

hoping for creative liberty in designing a securing mechanism for the key fob (maybe a spring loaded clip etc) as well as creating a design that accommodates securing and carrying the stated contents while maintaining the dimension specifications.
Don't Wants:
A complete redesign of what I have created via google sketchup. functional and creative solutions to securing the stated contents of what the wallet/clip holds are the goal.
Software:
  1. AutoCAD

#4 Wallet Clip by jnatzic
I moved the elastic down a bit to allow room for a key fob to fit under the elastic, next to the credit card/ cash holder. I lengthened the clip that clips to the pocket. The part that looks like carbon fiber is the elastic.

#3 Pocket Clip by jnatzic
This design is 1/8" thick aluminum with spring steel clips riveted to the main aluminum body. The two slots for an elastic strap are far enough apart to fit a wide variety of objects such as a key fob, ipod, cash, pedometer, etc. Ear buds can be wrapped around the bottom part and the ends can be secured under the elastic band to keep them neatly wrapped. The red object in the photo is an actual size credit card.

#2 Pocket Clip by jnatzic
Here is a simple design that could be punched out of a single piece of steel. The two slots in the middle are for an elastic band that would secure a key fog and is wide enough to slip credit cards/id cards under the elastic on the back of the device.

in other words possibly be creative in having the contents on only one side.

right direction. can you play around with getting the id/cc's on and fob on the same side so that once clipped to the front pocket the side that is flush with the pocket opening is bare. That way all contents face the side of the clip towards the leg (once clipped)

yes. STL works.

They would be ready for 3D printing.

Would you be interested in .stl files?

alot of the key fob have concave buttons. So I don't think that'd be an issue.

and the elastic option? My fear with metal is that it would damage the fob buttons.

steven, I didn't think of elastic. Sounds like it may be a good idea. key fob's do vary by size and I did think that would be an issue. My key fob measures about 2 1/2" in length and just over an inch in depth.

Aghisilaos, I respect your opinion. I visit a gym everyday and I the key fob bounces off my leg in my gym shorts like I have a golf ball in my pocket. It falls out when I decline press. and I forget it when I set it in the cupholder on the treadmill. So my opinion is yes its does need one and if it would clip into/onto something that hold the other bare essentials I bring into the gym then yes it would be helpful. This is designed to help me out first and then, maybe, other ppl. thanks for your comment

but even if you do need to have one....you should use the hole at the lower right corner to put a ring for the keys...and there you are....done deal....!
Mon, 11 Feb 2013 13:40:07 +0000
my opinion is that you don't need a key FOB in a clip...!

Key fobs come in different shapes and sizes. would an elastic holder be acceptable? Or does it have to be the same metal type construction?

Replicate Macbook Pro Cover
We are looking for someone to help us replicate a shell case for a MacBook Pro in a CAD format drawing that will function and fit the desired measurements. Our goal is to be able to take this design to a manufacturer for building. This case will include two parts: a top and a bottom. These parts need to be able to be built separately. Please see attached PDF for measurements This design should also be flexible enough to be adjustable so we can fit both the 15” and the 13” models. These models will be first produced in a CNC environment so the file must work within those constraints. The design should not include the bottom leg pads. The case we are looking to replicate is http://www.amazon.com/Speck-Products-SeeThru-Raspberry-SPK-A1498/dp/B00937DOEK We have most of the measurements but a second look would help. Wants: someone who either has a mac or can get their hands on one to see the coverture on the top and bottom case. Something that will actually can be produced. Main focus is on the 15" model case.

Knee-based Travel Mug Holder - New Product Design / Prototype
Commuters on buses and trains don't have cup holders, and so they are left with the balancing act of holding their travel mug in one hand, while trying read the paper or work on their laptops with their other hand.

Commuters need something that's compact and foldable that can then open and attach comfortably to their knee (or another body part?) that will securely hold travel mugs of different sizes.
