Description:
Design a tankless water heater. Something different yet pleasing to the eye. If it was in your home, Laundry room, garage, utility closet. Something futuristic, yet simple and doesn't stand out too much. No buttons or LCD screen. Can have LEDs and so forth to make the design better and stand out a little. The file will need to be able to convert and use. 3D model this and then put it into 3d rendering to make it look good. Use what software you want long as we can utilize the file for later purposes.

First place will continue working with us on the design for including full case design for manufacturing, and other renderings of the design along with the inside for mounting parts.

For now, we are looking for the best design and someone that will be able to help in the area listed above for future work.
Wants:
Can be any shape, size will be in these constraints. MAX 3 feet wide by 3feet long by 1foot depth and Minimum is 1Foot wide 1Foot length and 6Inch depth. must fall into those constraints. If the unit is round then can sacrifice wide length for depth. So you have a lot to work with. Make it simply does not have to be super complex. The unit will need to be able to hand on a wall you will have one inlet one outlet and a power plug-in.

3D rendering after to have as close as possible photo realistic product.
Don't Wants:
Overly complex
Ask for Sample:
One sample of the front and side of the unit.
Additional Information
Add a QR code on unit this is where people will connect the unit through the app. As well as add our logo to the unit. It will be attached.

This is an electric tankless.

** Update ** going to give the design some extra design considerations for flexibility. The depth we are going to expand to 3foot. If the width is taken in. This should help in design flexibility and out-of-the-box ideas.

***Update 2: The unit's temp is controlled by the app. Water flow is not important at this point meaning the connectors inlet and outlet just run at 1/2" or 3/4" pipe. Not important at this stage.
This is going in a home so not industrial.
No need for LCD screens as displays however can add LED however you see fit or cut outs that are see-through etc.
At this stage, we are looking for design.

haitham: temp reading is through app. You can use what color you believe will look the best for in a home. Doors you can put anything thing you like. Just logo and QR code.

alphinm: Flow rate can be 4GPM and as low as 2GMP. However, this is not as important due to just designing the outside looks.
Temperature can be controlled using the app. Range 60-140. Dont need LCD screens and so forth due running through app. How many people check that lcd screen unless something breaks and first setting it up.

GalaxyRobotics: This is more simplistic/stylish will be going into a home, not a work area.

Please specify the following details:
1) Flow rate.
2) Can the temperature be controlled using the app. If thats the case what is the range of temperature required ?
*please provide the above information so that I can design a good model.

Hello, gordono!
Thank you for this interesting contest. I just had a quick question for you to clear up.
Would you like the design to be more heavy-duty/ industrial looking, or more simplistic / stylish?
Thank you again, I am excited to work on this project.

atekd: Yes that is the max of the unit. So nothing over that. But also have some design room so if you go wider the height will have to decrease. Keep the depth to a minimum though 1 foot is ideal.

Are the dimensions correct 3 feet (H) x 3 feet (W)x 1 feet (D)

Vijay Dwivedi: Just the exterior of the unit. When we choose someone we will have them finish up design as the project moves forward for adding brackets and so forth into the design.

stanislavp: The unit will be a while home unit. Works for single point of use are also in the works. But power and electronics change. We are not to that point yet. But will develop in future. We are not needing any main controls due to unit being adjustable through an app on phone. Passive light controls will be good for diagnosis of unit. Implement them how ever you see fit.

hello,
do you want the internal heating element and electronics placement in the prototype , or just the exterior of it?

Do you mean gas tankless water heater?

Hello,
Thank you for publishing an interesting contest. A couple of questions for better understanding of the product application and correlated engineering goals. Do you plan to position a heater as a whole-home supply unit* or just as a point of usage? Did you definitely decided to extremely simplify user interface by eliminating any control elements except passive light indicators or it's up to designer to offer the best solution to make it equipped with temperature adjustment?

*A flow-through parameter, power consumption and eventually product dimensions may sufficiently vary. For example:
Kitchen sink, standard shower head, dishwasher or washing machine: up to 2 Gallons per minute
Bath tub: up to 4 GPM
Whole-home up to 6 GPM

Best Regards,
Stanislav

It is best to fit in the dimensions. Due to the internals. However, if you have a design that is a little bigger. I would not be apposed. But main factors will be in those constraints. This is also on going and sizes may change over time. Thanks

Design A computer Enclosure for me.
I need a computer enclosure (Case) designed, it will house a full ATX computer board, graphic card, RAM, CPU & PSU. It will be made from sheet metal (AI) for better thermal dissipation, has to be easy to access all hardware for upgrade.
Convertible Eyelash Curler
The goal is to design an eyelash curler that has easily swappable parts. The 2 swappable parts are: Top Plate and Rubber Holder. Curler parts can be metal, plastic or both. Features: - The fewer number of total parts the better - Open field of view - when the curler is in open state (handles are separated), nothing obstructing the field of view of the eye. But once you bring the handles of the curler together and the curling mechanism closes, it ok if the there are obstructions then. - The Top Plate must press onto the rubber with a pretty good force, so the mechanism cannot be "weak" Design cannot be the one that already exists by googling it.

New best smart collar
We at wizbond want to make a device that will help dog owners in various tasks and measurements.  Think smart collar, but better. Our key features are: 1. GPS locator using LaRoWan technology and powered by Helium blockchain infrastructure. 2. Geofencing, using our app allows dog owners to configure the virtual fence where the dog is supposed to stay. Once the dog leaves the perimeter the app will send a notification to the owner informing him about it 3. Temperature sensor to know what is the temperature of the dog and whether the dog is sick or just in a hot environment 4. Accelerometer to know the position of the dog ( standing, lying, running, and so on )  5. “Collar off/on”. We want a sensor that will show whether the collar has been taken off or not 6. A small speaker. To be able to send sound commands to the dog remotely. Think asking your phone to call the dog and the dog began to hear the voice of the owner saying something like "come back”. This feature is expected to be used in pair with training courses for the dogs.
(Book) 'Dragons throughout the Multiverse' Miniature design
I am a small independent self-publisher and the author/artist (Photoshop) for the Book (but that is the limitation of my design/technical expertise). This is a 3rd Printing of the book (40th Anniversary Edition) ©1982, 1994, 2022). I Need to contract with a good (possibly more competively priced) STL designer. I am going to start a Kickstarter Campagin to solicit presales for the STLs associated with this book *(and possibly do a jont-venture and/or profit share arrangemnt with the STL Designer(s) I select). (The Book has over 80+ Dragons and their included photos) *I can share samples of interior Artwork to aid in concept and STL design Anyone interested please submit a sample of the design you create based on (photo supplied below - a more simple design IMO)). Also submit a portfolio of simialr works. Thank you for your time and efforts.
