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
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.
File format: STL preferred

#4 First Design Concept by Luke B
This is my first design concept. Just a simple clip that allows the user to push the clip in in discrete notches to set the clip tension. This is just a concept. If you think this concept is worth pursuing I will improve the design and finalise it. The top of the design has been removed so that the internal mechanism can be seen.

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
