#1 Model 1 by Gregorius Giga
Hi Sanjayb,
First, Thanks for this great contest and sure your nice responses to us. This is my first entries to this contest.. I was tried to use the software from your website, but it's really hard to reaching out the server, i try to use different methods and it's works. So i can use the software from your website as your requirement. I hope you know It's such a big effort to model the part, editing to do modification while the software is lag/delay but is probably because the networks or server. Must be patient to finish the project. :)
Please tell me if i miss something in your requirement!
Best Regards, Giga

Similar Contests on Cad Crowd

Hall of Optical Illusions
I need a 3D CAD drawing of a Room of optical illusions for a permanent exhibit. This is in the conceptual stages. There will be other rooms requiring CAD drawings, but this is a pilot contest to see range of creativity and successfulness of contest. Room size +- 25 ft x 30 ft but if it looks too cramped, it can be larger. Estimate 10-15 people max in it at a given time. Entrance is shown on left side of room Exit is either through same or opening at top left of room No windows or other entrance / exits On display within room will be +- 20 posters – they do not need to all be on the perimeter walls. I am attaching 10 illusion samples for illustrative purposes. If you can work them into the CAD drawing, that would be a bonus. I am thinking about a few hanging displays dotted throughout the room, possibly hanging on chains from the ceiling. I am open to all ideas. There will be 5 interactive illusions that will require some kind of table top that is accessible for kids There will be distorting/fun mirrors in one area - 5-6 total mirrors There will be 2 x interactive Opti Illusion floor (see this weblink for demo video http://www.optimusic.com/opti-illusion.) Space needed is +- 3 by 5 ft I am looking for ideas of room design and color themes for walls and floor, and lighting I am leaning towards a lot of white but with black and white mixed in, tied in with optical illusion theme, but open to all ideas.
iPod / iPhone Case with integrated right angle lens.
Design and prototype an iPhone and iPod touch case that incorporates a right angle lens and 2x zoom lens. Also maybe model a cavity for extra battery pack if possible. A laser pointer would be a bonus. I realize the components will result in a somewhat bulky design. I am ok with that. Also, not sure how to budget here. Putting 1000 to start.
Smart Bed Design
1. We are looking for you to design a smart bed. 2. The bed moves along all three axis, thus is can imitate a rocking motion like in a baby bed. To accomplish this, there is a special mechanical construction under the bed. First, you have to design the mechanical construction. The mechanical construction is shown in image 1. The bedframe sits on the four areas marked with red. On image 2 you can see that the bed can move back and forth, left and right and up and down. Have a look a this short clip that further visualizes the logic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRqg2ciYjsc Now we have to insert motors to move these linear guides. We put them at the end of the rail in a perpendicular way like image 3. In image 4 you see where two motors should be put in the mechanical construction. For the four motors that move the bed up and down and which the bedframe sits on, it doesn't have to look like in images 1-4. You can think of a suitable design. It could be cylindrical, reach all the way down to the rail and embrace it or be positioned in an otherwise stable way. If you need a 3D model to start your linear rail with, you can have a look at file 2. (obj format). Images 1-4 and the files only give you examples how the mechanical construction works. You should not make an exact 3D mode of these images as it looks too technical. We need something stylish that can be presented to non-technical customers while still functioning to move the bed. Be free in your creativity (colors, shapes etc.) 4. Have a look at files 2-3 (in smt, stl format from Fusion 360) to see the measures. The bed’s width is 160cm. In that 3D model you see how the bedframe is connected with the mechanical construction. Also there is a cover around the base mechanical construction so that you cannot see it from outside. Not included in this model is an adjustable duckboard where the mattress will be put on as in image 5. Please include one. The measures are for your orientation (except bed width). If you feel, changing the arrangement would be better, do it. 5. Let your creativity free to design the bedframe. The bed has to be equipped with LED lights and loudspeakers. It has to be stylish and innovative and combine modern technology with human’s tradition of sleep. Image 6 is ONE example (without the side extensions at the head part; the polished wood texture looks nice, the edges are rounded, the matress is overall covered in a white frame). The elevated white pillows could be turned in a single wood element with an integrated LED wrist and small loudspeakers. Come up with your own idea and surprise us with how you think a smart bed looks like. Ideally you provide two textures of the bed (e.g. wood, white) Add pillows, blankets in the color you like. On the bed, please put a headset as seen in image 7 on the blanket or pillow. This will be put on by the person sleeping to measure brain activity. 6. Put the bed in a surrounding that you think fits: e.g. stylish bedroom, big panorama window or even plain area etc. 7. Finally, we need the 3D files of the smartbed. Please take the following shots of the model: - only the mechanical base construction - mechanical base construction with bedframe and without mattress with duckboard - mechanical base construction with bedframe and with mattress - mechanical base construction with bedframe and with mattress with LED lights turned on - close up of the LED and loudspeakers - It is not a must, but will be a plus, if you animate the movement of the bed so that it rocks like a rocking bed The more perspectives, the better. If you have two versions of the bed (e.g. wood, white), show us the pictures in both versions. 8. Intended audience: Your model will be presented to large customer audience and we will give the winner credit. The pictures need to look very realistic. We want to work with the winner for future projects (e.g. animating the bed movement). We are willing to select several winners. Hit us up for any questions and we are also available on skype.
Design the coolest penis rings
We already have a successful line of vibrating penis rings, to get an idea visit http://www.ovo.de/en/category/rings. The new line will be different, though, ovo is a line created with a white, clean, mainstream concept, the new line will be branded LooP. "LooP Maximum Performance"will be inspired in sports and concept cars, men worldwide appeal very well to sports cars and performance is always related to them, therefore, sexual performance can be inspired in sports cars. Designers need to take the following into account: 1. Vibrating penis rings must meet their promise, they deliver orgasms by stimulating both, men and women during intercourse, designers must think of the ergonomics of sex, the ring constrains the flow of blood to the penis but the part that holds the motor serves a double purpose, it indirectly stimulates men and directly stimulates the clitoris, so successful designs must consider an elevation of the part that holds the motor. 2. I envision these rings as a fusion between the ring and a sports car, the front of the "car" is the ring and the hood holds the motor, the elevation that will get in contact with the clitoris is the "windshield" and the hood, the vibration from the motor will diffuse to the "windshield" and the "hood" the back of the ring is just pure design. 2. The material is medical grade silicone as it is stretchy and tissue safe, this also means the following constrains: Silicone is matt finished, attaining a glossy color is somewhat difficult but not impossible, there should not be too many elements in the ring as these rings perform in a "wet" environment, bacteria can get inside the joints of different layers. 3. I want 16 different rings, each of them inspired in a sports or concept car, we will have suggestive names for them like "Loop Stealth", "LooP M3", "LooP Viper", etc. Finally, Have fun, I think it's an amazing project!! PS. Attached is our number one selling penis ring from the current line, that will give you an idea on size, weight and motor positioning. Also, I have attached a preliminary logo, the symbol you see is the celtic symbol of virility which could nicely be used in the rings the same way sports car have a symbol on the hood.
