Breakaway and adjustable collar for catsBlind

in CAD Design held by mitel
Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
Features:
1) Breakaway - cats can release the clip by itself for safety reason.
2) Adjustable - pet owner can adjust the tension of collar for different sizes of pets. E.g. Higher tension for bigger cats, which makes them more difficult to release the clip themselves than kitten.
3) The design will be for small sized buckle that attaches to a 3/8" wide strap. It would be good if it can fit the smallest size to 1/8" as well. But 1/8" is a bonus feature not a must.
4) The CAD format has to be 3D print. We will test the feasibility of the design with 3D printers.
5) The design should not infringe on an existing patent.
Wants:
Function, Usability, Form
Additional Information
**IMPORTANT**
A breakaway collar ensures if cat gets its collar stuck or caught on something that entangles it, keeps the cat safe from injury, choking or worse.
For the adjustable feature, cat owner needs to be able to easily adjust the tension (3 levels of holding strength: High tension for senior cat, middle tension for adult cat, low tension for kitten) right on the buckle. Cat owner can increase the loading tension of buckle whereas the cat can still break free if placed under too much tension.
First place will continue working with us on the design for including full buckle case design for manufacturing / mass production, and other renderings of the design along with the inside mechanism.

File format: STL preferred

**REMARKS**
Due to extra time needed to be invested in 3D print some of the contestant's ideas for checking the feasibility and usability, the contest is extended for extra 10 days.

**3D PRINTERS**
We use 2 kinds of printers below to test out your ideas - Please bear in mind your design should fulfil the requirement of feasibility not just in design rendering, but in actual 3D print samples.

3D Printer – Ultimaker 3
Fuse Filament Fabrication (FFF), dual extrusion nozzles with auto nozzle lifting
system. Build volume 197 x 215 x 200 mm
ultimaker.com/3d-printers/ultimaker-3

3D Printer – Form 3

Inflatable Spray Tanning Tent
I am a mobile spray tanner and currently using the standard mobile spray tan pop up tent. They are very difficult to clean and if you are busy tanner like me the tent gets very dirty very quickly. My website is crazyelegance.co.uk How do you clean - very difficult and messy job so why not be able to put the tent in the washing machine! So for this, all elements of the tent need to be material with no metal bits of which then it has to become a structure that is inflatable. I have no experience with design packages so I am hoping this is enough information for someone to help me put my concept into a reality so that I can then move to the next stage of having a tent prototyped for me. Visually the design has been based on a ‘round shape’ but in order for this to work with the flow of air the design may not be a perfect round and would be more like large octagon or pentagon. There will be 3 clear windows and a complete clear top 'skylight' I feel the current design of spray tan tents doesn't give enough light into the tent to enable you to see what you are doing. Inflated via a constant blow of air (bouncy castle) that will enter all panels constantly via blower – this will need to be shown at the back of the tent - details of energy efficient blow for constant airflow https://www.slideshare.net/MaconLong/introducing-inflatable-blowers-for-bounce-houses-other-inflatables-offered-by-zoom-blowers-60501796 I am not sure for the air to flow properly if their needs to be a panel of air flow from the bottom of the tent as per the top of the tent until I see the design. Attachment of towels to the floor of the tent via pre-designed towels that are press studded down onto the floor to prevent a trip hazard - to be designed at a later date but to made a provision for within the tent design. Lighting attachment – battery operated (possible development)

8 home eco-destination by company called Clean Green
Hello,I'm looking to spend 300$ and get some rough concept drawings made up. I am preparing a proposal for funding and want to add some respectable drawings for a wow factor. I plan on constructing 8 homes, consisting of 4 Earthship style and 4 passive house style on a 4 acre property in PEI canada. I have attached hand drawn drafts of the two style homes, floor plans and plot plan. If someone wanted to use them and the reference pictures and whip up some quick but good looking concept drawings I would be grateful and pay 300$ for what should be 3 hours work. What is needed mostly is -4 elevations of each building (8 total) - 2 floorplans - 2 plot plans roughly following my sketch with lots of trees? colored maybe? Try to follow the references but I know 300$ wont go far so do what you can internet crowd sourcing friends! Thank you
