Description:With the outbreak of Coronavirus; testing, social distancing, and handwashing have helped prevent the spread of this disease. One area responsible for the further spread is frequently touched surfaces in offices, stores, and workplace areas (i.e. door handles).
We believe the Cad Crowd community can help prevent the spread by creating open-source product designs for public spaces.
The contest involves creating products that will be shared under a publicly downloadable open source license (Creative Commons). The goal is to develop designs that can be quickly and affordably produced with 3D printing and/or off the shelf basic components (i.e. pre-made parts that are readily available).
Wants:Some product ideas include no-touch door handles, no-touch doorknob attachments for houses/senior living spaces, and no-touch faucets. These are just examples, and we’ll consider all new product concepts that are practical, affordable, simple to produce and can be easily cleaned (see attachment with product examples/ideas).
Please submit your design entry with images, a neutral file format (.igs, .stp, .fbx, .obj, .x3d, etc.) and a native file format if applicable (SolidWorks, Inventor, CATIA, Creo, NX, 3ds max, etc.). In add-on, please upload your entry as a downloadable file into our new CAD library so that others can view and download designs - www.cadcrowd.com/3d-models/new
Thanks for your help with slowing the spread of this disease in public spaces and please ask any questions in the comments area below. All participants that submit a high-quality entry will receive an additional 50 bonus points for contest participation. In addition, we’re aiming for corporate sponsorship to increase the value and number of prizes available for this contest.
Additional InformationHi All, thanks for the great entries! Will work through these designs with colleagues over the coming days and reply with feedback.
To re-iterate on contest goals: we want to create open-source designs that anyone can download, easily produce (3D print or create with commonly available parts) and use in public spaces. This means that all designs are currently downloadable by everyone (i.e. peers, companies, media, etc.) to immediately reduce the spread of COVID-19 and ideally save lives.
Please remember to read the description/evaluation criteria for consideration and submit your design as a downloadable file in the CAD library ( www.cadcrowd.com/3d-models/downloadable ).
To help with judging, we’ve enabled peer reviews (temporary) - we want your help short-listing the entries that you feel would be useful in the workplace. As a side note, the Autodesk Viewer ( viewer.autodesk.com/ ) is a great tool for viewing CAD files if you don't have compatible software. Please keep comments polite and professional to maintain a positive/creative environment. Send me a private message if you have concerns about derivative designs that seem to closely follow designs from other users without adding any substantial changes or value.
Open collaboration ( bit.ly/3dhVqrP ) for design entries is permitted if it’s mutually agreed to between yourself and the other designer(s). In this case, prizes would be split between participants and hopefully, we’ll get some extra sponsorship to make that worthwhile. *Note: Cad Crowd does not guarantee that design entries will prevent transmission of the novel Coronavirus.

COVID-19 Classroom Safety and 3D Product Design Challenge (open-source designs)
Schools and colleges are under pressure to re-open after the Coronavirus lockdown temporarily shifted classes online. This can present a unique challenge for crowded classroom settings and the educational institutions will need to adapt. We believe the Cad Crowd community can help slow the spread with open-source product designs specific to the educational environment. This virus prevention contest is a follow-up to the May challenge for the workplace and public spaces ( www.cadcrowd.com/contest/2332-covid-19-coronavirus-product-design-and-3d ) The latest FDA advisory suggests that COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person, typically through respiratory droplets from coughing, sneezing, or talking. Experts indicate the risk of infection can be reduced with masks, physical distance, and barriers between individuals in spaces where groups of students gather. The goal for this contest is to create open-source designs shared under Creative Commons that can be affordably produced with 3D printing and/or off-the-shelf components (pre-made parts, plexiglass, etc.).
Animal (and other) themed kettlebells
This is a competition to design animal (and other) themed kettlebells. It is important that there are no sharp edges and no protruding elements that could cause injury or get stuck on clothing. The design will also need to allow for our logo being evident on the back of the kettlebell. Whilst the logo has been attached, the designers are free to adjust it in size, position, and proportion as they deem suitable. The size needs to be consistent with a normal sized competition kettlebell, which is easy enough for people to look up but as a rough guide: Handle Diameter: 33MM. Distance Between Handles: 123MM. Base Diameter: 140MM The actual design can be representative or a bit cartoonish, depending on the aspirations of the designers Nominated animals include: A lion, leopard, elephant, rhino (all obviously flattened down in their contours for safety), shark, eagle, dragons, snake, scorpion, crocodile, bear, wolf, Tyrannosaurus rex, Sabre toothed tiger, spider This list is a guide and designers are welcome to choose other animals or themes I do not require any primates and do not require skull designs

Einsteins Training Paws
Concept: Create a device with the ability for a dog to put his paw on six different areas. Embedded in the pad or mat are proximity switches. As the dog places their paw in each area both words, i.e. Drink, Eat, Outside, Love Me, Play and Leave Me Alone are played along with an accompanied dog sound, background noise (or Bark, etc). They include: 1. Drink 2. Eat 3. Outside 4. Love 5. Play 6. Leave me alone I would also link up via marketing with the current paw treat dispenser (marketing relationship), some have dual cameras so u can see them and they can see u and u can electronically send them a treat. https://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/store/product/petcube-bites-interactive-wi-fi-pet-camera-and-treat-dispenser/3342848?skuId=62817813&enginename=google&mcid=PS_googlepla_nonbrand_pet_online&product_id=62817813&adtype=pla&product_channel=online&adpos=&creative=223560994791&device=m&matchtype=&network=g&mrkgadid=3245052790&mrkgcl=609&rkg_id=0&utm_campaignid=71700000037121734&utm_adgroupid=58700004139975561&targetid=92700034063773421&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIiYPHiaGt6AIVCmKGCh2ClQB_EAQYAyABEgK17PD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds Imagine a hybrid of a puppy dispensing system above with the Einstein Training Pad.

According to a pet owners survey, there were approximately 89.7 million dogs owned in the United States in 2017. This is an increase of over 20 million since the beginning of the survey period in 2000, when around 68 million dogs were owned in the United States. Number of dogs in the U.S. 2000-2017. Published by Emma Bedford, Nov 27, 2019. The statistic also shows the share of pet owners in the United States in 2016, by generation. In 2016, 35 percent of pet owners were Millennials. Baby boomers were the next largest generation of pet owner, with 32 percent. Statista 2020
