Bamboo Prep StationBlind

in CAD Design held by robertc1
TIME REMAINING: 4 days, 15 hours
Description:
Hi!

We would like to ask you for your help to create a new kitchen prep station 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.

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 product to market!

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. 3D files as well. And static images of all the different angles sent separately.

Requirements:
1. We are looking for a very specific product. You can choose to use our EXACT details on HOW we would do it and provide the final details to make it work perfectly (and look nice, consider costs, etc). Possibly adding in some small changes or improvements. This is highly desirable to us. We like the current idea but need it fleshed out and the “Look/Details” finalized. See the description on what we were thinking.
2. You can also choose to make a more unique product based on the ideas presented. This could work but it will be more difficult to do exactly what we want.
3. The product must include a cutting board, food scale, food disposal area for items chopped on cutting board, and containers to put the food in. The idea of measuring the food is also good. Extra “cutting parts/blades” not really desired. We like the idea of an efficient cutting board where you use a knife. Please see the bottom on the specifics of the products we like and why.
4. Size: Flexible. Kitchen product. We recommend a cutting board of around 16 inches long and about 10 inches wide. This is a good starting point. The rest of the details please consider making the different elements big enough but also consider the costs as well. It should be an efficient/space saving product. Easy to be out of the way and not too bulky.
5. The item has to come FULLY Assembled.
6. The more versatility and uniqueness this product has the better. But simplicity, cost in manufacturing and shipping are also very important.
7. Material: Needs to be made of bamboo. All bamboo is ideal and recommended. Some metal and/or glass can also be included. No plastic except perhaps for the scale.
8. High quality and durability a priority. Materials that don’t crack or warp, etc.
9. MORE function is desired. Versatility and function is a huge part of our brand. More STORAGE space or ways to store.
10. It should look aesthetically pleasing in its design. People should look at it and go “that’s nice!”.
11. The deliverables should include full design in multiple angles for CAD drawings. As well as static images of all angles plus 3D files.

See our attached file for Specifics.
Wants:
See Attached File for Specifics
Additional Information
New Concept for Organizer (Highly Desired):

*Measuring Cup Slide

See this image first:

www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08LNYK19W/ref=sspa_dk_detail_2

If you notice on the right hand side of the cutting board there are 3 ramekins. This is not really what I am asking you to do but it gave me an idea. What we would really like to add is a section where you can SLIDE food cut on the cutting board into designated areas that can be measured. In a standard measurement like cups, 1/2 cups, and maybe 1/4 or 1/3 or 2 cups. That would depend on the design. But at least 1/2 and 1 full cup.

There should be no blockage for the food to be slide directly into holes where they can be measured.

This could be on one of the sides or behind the cutting board.

Then the user should be able to remove the measured portion.

This is a highly desired feature! Please include it.

A less desired function would be holding food that needs to be prepared. This is not necessary. Places for extra utensils and things is not either.

Please let me know if you need more clarification on this concept.

Amendment:

We really like the idea of a stainless steel scale as well. With little to no plastic. Eco-Friendly is important. You can see some on Amazon like this:

www.amazon.com/Etekcity-Multifunction-Platform-Batteries-Stainless/dp/B076BJG1RN/ref=sr_1_7

Important new idea:

Detachable top! Must have. This will make cleaning it so much easier!! The unit will likely need to be large so making the top detachable will be a huge bonus.

NO MORE Weight Scale:

We have decided to remove the necessity of having a scale with this product. Sorry for the late change. I think with the other recent changes it is not necessary and causes unnecessary complications with using plastic and electronic complexity. And it takes up space that can be used for other things. Please remove that element.

#52 Cutting board with rotating bins by Jeremy Benjamin
This model does not yet include a scale, as I'm not very familiar with cutting-board scales, but if my design is of interest to you, I can develop it further to incorporate a scale added beneath the current design.
I placed all the 3D part files and 2D drawing files of the individual parts into a Google Drive, easier to organize them that way then upload them here one by one- here's the link to all those files: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ieyxWZPZDiiiwVKUJiRMpglSP12vnJBU?usp=sharing

3) removed the scales
4) added the grater (as a lid for the half container)
5) lengthened the smartphone holder so it can hold a tablet

Yes, you need a disposal area. No scale. An area for measuring cups. Detachable Top. Yes, you need containers.

So no need of disposable area, No scale & just 1 or 2 ramekins, what about the containers?

This is a good example of a prep station where you could "push/slide" food into measuring areas (shown on the right). Easy to use.

New Concept for Organizer (Highly Desired):

*Measuring Cup Slide

See this image first:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08LNYK19W/ref=sspa_dk_detail_2?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B08LNYK19W&pd_rd_w=OGGvT&pf_rd_p=395f87e5-7923-465a-b450-eb84f1966add&pd_rd_wg=Fa1Q1&pf_rd_r=8AQG562PDNTCNNRM5CMS&pd_rd_r=4249ad49-0d57-467f-84c6-3ee09d8d992d&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExTlBUTFRFNjM4UEdZJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNDIwNTA0M01OOThBSVdMSFU2TiZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMTA4NjU1Mk5SQUZDRzZYQ09RMyZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2RldGFpbCZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

If you notice on the right hand side of the cutting board there are 3 ramekins. This is not really what I am asking you to do but it gave me an idea. What we would really like to add is a section where you can SLIDE food cut on the cutting board into designated areas that can be measured. In a standard measurement like cups, 1/2 cups, and maybe 1/4 or 1/3 or 2 cups. That would depend on the design. But at least 1/2 and 1 full cup.

There should be no blockage for the food to be slide directly into holes where they can be measured.

This could be on one of the sides or behind the cutting board.

Then the user should be able to remove the measured portion.

This is a highly desired feature! Please include it.

A less desired function would be holding food that needs to be prepared. This is not necessary. Places for extra utensils and things is not either.

Please let me know if you need more clarification on this concept.

Response to Panji Hakim:

Either. Something more standard (this is available with a manufacturer) should be strongly considered but if there is a strong reason to use something unique that is okay.

robertc1

Buyer

Mon, 05 Apr 2021 17:29:29 +0000
Response to TAC Designs:

As I stated in my last response I would be flexible here if possible. You can try to be creative with your scale size and placement. That is okay. I am interested in seeing these designs if it fits all the other needs.

Here is another scale type/size that I know is available:

https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Eco-friednly-Natural-Bamboo-Cutting-Board_62321868311.html?spm=a2700.details.0.0.78306afcEh3dA8

This is about 14.5 cm x 22.5 cm x 1.4 cm in depth. So we have a depth here that should be useful. And a size for another scale type.

robertc1

Buyer

Mon, 05 Apr 2021 17:22:03 +0000
Response to CDDesignStudio:

Yes, the exact size of the scale is not shown on that Alibaba link. But if you take into account the size of the scale that IS shown you can get a pretty good idea. As long as you are close and there is room for size adjustments by the manufacturer that will be fine. The depth of the scale is the trickier part. It is a little deeper than shown in the picture. I would try to adjust your design to allow for some flexibility in the depth of the scale as well.

Fri, 02 Apr 2021 23:46:48 +0000
But we can't see nothing from picture.Do you have some measurements? Attach measuring scale you want to buy (link from ebay,alibaba,made in china) W x H x L ,we can just incorporate that scale into our design.

robertc1

Buyer

Fri, 02 Apr 2021 21:04:48 +0000
One thing to consider is the depth of the kitchen scale. In the design document I attached for this project you will see an example of a kitchen scale. You should use the size of this scale and the design. We are not interested in trying to customize a scale beyond possibly the outer bamboo appearance (maybe). Best just to use this scale. It will save us cost and trouble and that scale works well enough. The rest of the product can be more customized

A couple more products and thoughts:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B088FTSWXS/ref=sspa_dk_detail_4?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B088FTSWXS&pd_rd_w=VABYl&pf_rd_p=4269e1a0-a218-4fbd-9748-1cd337d2f2a5&pd_rd_wg=zbosN&pf_rd_r=ZYQWP43WJ5E5XK8QNG0V&pd_rd_r=d7ce863c-d8b5-4c68-98dd-c061e270aa1f&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyNEpaSzcwQllUTVlWJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMTk4NjM0MlE1NFpLUkJJSzQ0RCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwODcwOTAwOFZZTURJU1NKVkg1JndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfZGV0YWlsJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==

The way they use a few "shredding" attachments we like. If you can lay down a larger set of shredding blades like these and they lock in place that might be an idea we would be interested in.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B085HF8C97/ref=sspa_dk_detail_5?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B085HF8C97&pd_rd_w=W5pM9&pf_rd_p=cbc856ed-1371-4f23-b89d-d3fb30edf66d&pd_rd_wg=AdhQk&pf_rd_r=3S1ZWARSCFD4ZW202A0F&pd_rd_r=b7adb302-a8db-4f9e-bdf0-0172b3415c56&smid=A10K3IO87N8I72&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUFNMk5CQjQ5OEpFNiZlbmNyeXB0ZWRJZD1BMDI3ODkxODJHNjdQVDNQSDVIMzImZW5jcnlwdGVkQWRJZD1BMDkyODE2NjFMMUJYSDlMSE9UUTMmd2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9kZXRhaWxfdGhlbWF0aWMmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl

This one uses stainless steel containers. This is an interesting possibility. Sanitary, easy to clean, good for kitchens. Less likely to be damaged in transit than glass. But not see through. Also, with this one and our product consider an area where you can put your food out BEFORE you prep it.

Self Balancing cane: Looking to develop a self balancing walking stick for old people.

Think out side the box, a new take on photo booths. Innovation starts here.
Greetings. As a commercial photographer I was getting sick of this DIY Photo Booth market. So I've spent the past 2 years prototyping different products to combine to make a reliable product to take to market. While doing this we built a company that would let our products be tested in the real world. This is my first time posting for CADCrowd so we will be as detailed as possible, if you need any more info please leave a public message or send me a private message. What we are looking for: We want to build a product that is innovative, stylish, light weight, collapsable yet durable. We are sick of seeing Boxes. We want a unit that is free standing and curtain-less. I would love a stainless steel or aluminum face, but are open to other ideas. We don't want the end product to break the bank when it comes to manufacturing so would like materials to be widely available. Height - We would like the unit to be at its tallest 70" would like it to have removable sections so hight could vary. Free standing Collapsable/mobile - END GOAL would love for the entire unit to break down in to ONE 1650 Pelican Case. Simply assembly - would like this process to go quick, maybe pins/magnets/dovetails maybe power integration from base to components. Durable - This unit will be on the go, seeing 50-60 party's a year, thats 10,000 - 50,000 potentially drunk people a year and would love to get at least 5 years from it. Stream line - think of apples clean cut designs, would love for it to feel simple, not threatening. Products: Specs Available online or upon request. HITI 510L Printer - needs side access for paper and ink, can only print on a angle of up to 30 degrees, would love for paper to come out on the front under/lower then the screen. the printer can be removable or bolted to unit. (consider break down) Windows surface tablet - needs to be accessible for touch screen, needs to be mounted flush or minimal clearance for clean design. needs access to power and usb ports from the back. Camera - standard DSLR camera. would like to have a 77mm UV filter mounted for the camera to touch up against. a dovetail plate would be great to let the camera move back and forth for different lens (up to 8" of slide) Lights - would like to place LED's and a flash tube on either side of the camera so we will need holes and diffusion plexi/plastic for this as well. we will most lily be making our own boards to mount so there aren't any specs on this yet. Adjustable angle mount - would like it if the tablet/camera/light were mounted together with a potential of up to 20 degree horizontal tilt. (consider whats behind the faceplate, don't want gaps where fingers can get caught. I hope this sums up needs and wants. I will include a quick sketch of our ideas to maybe fuel your inspiration.
Hover fit
HoverFit is an exercise device used to strengthen the upper body. The device is comprised of a circular ring with padding in the inner portion for comfort. It is approximately 10” in diameter. Users put both ankles in the ring and strap down the padding. Users utilize a percentage of their own weight to complete the movements. There is a moving mechanism that keeps the device from becoming tangled and allows for free rotation and movement. The device can be hung from any suitable location above the user.
Safe Watch
Vision: We build an emergency Smartwatch, that can save Lifes. The so called SafeWatch will detect heart Issues and falls. There is an emergency Button where persons can call for help. We are only interested in the look and feel of the device; engineering will be addressed at a later date. Target Audience: - Men and women - Age: 50+ Design Specification: - Comfortable to wear 24/7 for older people - Quadrangular (Because of battery measurements and arrangement of sensors) - Classy unobtrusive design. People should not feel weak or in need of help or old because they wear the watch. And they also don’t want to be seen as such. - It should looks noble - Waterproof (Swimming in pool, shower, rain) Buttons: There are two buttons: - Alarm Button (Person has to push this button for 2 seconds in order to alarm). It has to be easy to push and clearly visible f.ex. color red. - OK / Back to home Button. Clear difference to the emergency button. Plastic case
Totem Pole
I am looking for a CAD or 3d Studio Max drawing of 8 totem pole sections. These sections are going to be cut on a CNC laithe out of wood logs. There are going to be 2 top sections and 6 interchangeable mid sections. The top sections are going to be some kind of bird that have cutouts for insert able wings. One of the birds is to have a flat beak and the other one a large beak that is machined separately. The wings are going to be cut from about 3/4" thick wood. There will be two sets of wings (4 total) two large and two small. The large wings will be about 12" X 36" and the small wings will be about 8" x 20". All sections to be 36" to 60" long using 9" to 16" diameter logs. The base of the top sections and the top and base of all of the mid sections need to be similar diameter so that they can be stacked on top of one another. There is a significant artistic component to this project. There are some models available online to get a start with but they will need to be modified and added to. Keep in mind that all of the pieces need to have a similar theme. All of the pieces should be a stylized depiction of a north american animal ie. moose, bear, beaver, squirrel, turtle, eagle, owl etc. A mosquito would be great too.
