Description:
Hello. We're looking for skeletal open-concept computer case designs with emphasis on showing-off the GPU component.

'Less is more' to achieve minimal footprint during manufacturing - ideally restricted to aluminium cnc machining and bending.

Have fun-- this is a competition that encourages ambition.

After award, we will contact our chosen designer to enter R&D process with us + additional payment.

Example: please view below as an ideal design, however, do not submit similar as this is a competitor.

Optional inspiration: www.raindesigninc.com/mtower.html
Wants:
Clarifications:
1. 4mm thick aluminium panels
2. If possible, please consider practical wiring channels for cable management
3. GPU will be connected with a PCI-E riser (flat cable), so can be detached from the motherboard.

For fair comparison, please utilise the following models in your design:

1. RTX2080Ti - 3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model/c4e12918-f09a-4af4-8a3f-100e07e51899/Nvidia-GeForce-RTX-2080-Ti-Graphics-Card

2. Mini-itx MB - 3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model/bafff50c-2ea0-4c94-b663-f01da1be2b2b/Gigabyte-Aorus-I-Z390-Pro-Wifi-mini-itx-motherboardmobo

3. PSU - 3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model/2d56d6ab-d1f2-4ab7-91a8-46e8c43fb6ad/Corsair-CX650M-Computer-Power-Supply
Don't Wants:
Boring, enclosed computer cases. Exception being that, the GPU is uniquely positioned and the rest of the computer is enclosed. That is acceptable.

which are the manufacturing technique need to be consider.
any thing else need to be consider ?
how much complex the design should be on the scale of 1 to 10 ( "1" being simple plane sheet metal and 10 being complex 3D generative design only possible to produce with with 3D printing or CNC )

Hi Krisnaas, yes just mini-itx for now. Form factor is important to us.

Hi GalaxyRobotics,

Excellent questions.

1. No multi-GPU requirement.
2. No, not necessary if open case. However, vertical space to fit larger CPU coolers is a must. (80mm). If enclosed, I would suggest simple perforation and a small fan.

3. To lessen the complication of design, I would say it is not necessary. If you wish to include compatibility with liquid coolers as part of your submission, it must be an optional/add-on bracket etc.

Hello, and thank you for this interesting contest.
I have a couple questions:
Will the case need to have multi GPU (SLI/Crossfire) compatibility?
Will the case need to provide cooling for the motherboard?
WIll the case need to have space for a radiator for an All in One Cooler?

Thank you again, and I am looking forward to working on this project.

Hi Mochidudu,

It sounds like a really fun competitions and I will like to submit entries as soon as possible. However, is it possible for you to share a more generalized version of the design,files, i.e. IGS/IPT file format? I use Solidworks for design and a Sketchup file is not supported in it.
Please let us know, if its possible.

Thanks

Small Animal Harness
I would like to have someone draw my basic cat harness for me with my very basic logo included. This harness should be fully adjustable with a snap buckle. The girth should adjust from 15 inches to 25 inches and the neck should adjust from 10 inches to 20 inches ( at the minimum ). Please note that I'm not sure if these dimensions are important as far as actually drawing the harness is concerned but I've included the dimensions to be as detailed as possible. I would like this harness to be a cloth material ( nylon ) but I would like the strip of fabric that connects the neck area to the girth area to be a leather material because I plan to personalize these harnesses. This product should be designed in black. I would like the width of the fabric to be no more than 2.5 cm and the thickness should be about 2 mm. The logo should be on a piece of fabric which includes two paws and the words BOBO New York.
3D Product Design for Lipgloss/Lipstick Component
I need a 3d product design for a lipstick and lipgloss component that i am having made custom so i need a 3d concept design for the manufacturers to make the mold for this packaging. The shape of the component will resemble a crystal and very geometric. I will attach a photo of what i envision but just in 3d. Also the technology of the component is a push button pop up style, with a spring on the inside im assuming to have it released out and also clicked back in. Chanel's allure lipgloss/lipstick technology is exactly what im looking for. This is generally everything that i am looking for but feel free to be creative and go above and beyond in terms of the shape. Anything geometric and edgy looking i would love. I want this lipstick/lipgloss packaging to be very cutting edgy and modern. Very out there in style and eye catching. Just a rough concept design of the exterior shapes. I want a 3d design that you are able to spin and rotate around to see all edges and shape of it because the design i want will not be uniform all around. Thank you. Have fun with designing!

Whiskey Globes
I’m looking for CAD designs of a spherical ice cube mold that depicts the world map. The mold will be produced using food grade silicone as they’ll be marketed as whiskey ice balls. The ice globes should be embossed with a world map and measure 2.5 inches in diameter including the embossment. The embossment should be raised enough so that the earth will not immediately melt away in a drink. I have attached pictures of 3D globes as well as the highest rated amazon product of its kind which is also linked below: https://www.amazon.com/Zoku-Silicone-Stackable-Easy-Release-Phthalate-Free/dp/B07CJHCCW4/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8&th=1 If I've left out any details please feel free to contact me.
