Description:
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
Wants:
Aesthetic appeal and functionality with the latter crucial for manufacture. The more animals you offer up in a submission, the better the chance of winning too.
Don't Wants:
Any pointing edges, that could snap off if dropped, design impacting in the handle grip not too high up - it can not affect the handgrip. Must not copy anyone else's design, must be original.
Company Logo:
Yes
Software:
  1. Needs to be in STEP and IGS format
Additional Information
File format: either STEP or IGS is fine

The style we are after is like the one by onnit- if you google "onnit primal kettlebell" this may help in clarifying things further

There is no need to put a weight on the design. Thank you for asking

Is we have to mention the standard weight number in kg/Lb behind the kettlebell as onnit style?

We are not averse to different sizes but would prefer they are comparable to a standard sized kettlebell
Fri, 03 Jul 2020 16:43:10 +0000
Do you want a variety of sizes for the animals or do you want the same size kettlebell for each animal?

So where the handle of the kettle attaches from one end to the other is about 123mm
Mon, 29 Jun 2020 23:18:00 +0000
what exactly do u mean by distance between handles? if that question makes sense. Im just not sure where the 123 mm goes.

Thank you for clarifying- either is fine.

When you say the files need to be in STEP and IGS format, do you mean you want both formats for one design, or is it either one?

Covid-19/Coronavirus Product Design and 3D Printing Challenge (open source designs)
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).
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.).
