Description:
Hello,

I am looking for someone to have the STL files converted into Fusion360 and some modifications made
The original model is www.thingiverse.com/thing:1559232
"The Venus box"

I am looking to have the "cam" file modified so the base is a toothed cog that will be connected to a servo.
the "cover_3" file to be modified to add a 'base plate' to the base of the cover 130mm*130mm , the idea is the cover will be the fixed part and the movement will come form the modified cam with the cog teeth
Wants:
design details, this should be rather simple for someone skilled in Fusion 360
this model is to be 3d printed
Software:
  1. Autodesk Fusion 360
Additional Information
Some further details,
the servo will be an SG90, mounted to the base that the cover will be attached to further thought a mount would be ideal for the servo

Gears, I am not familiar with the best options and am open to suggestions, I am looking for a slow speed open and close, about 5 seconds (will be controlled from servo) so that should be taken into account.

NOTICE:
I have enough entries now, and I am currently 3D printing all entries top date.,
I don't want people to waste time now as the entries I have will likely do!
Thanks all!

#12 Venus Box_3 by Gregorius Giga
Hi,
This is the improvement design that i send you by message before. I do analysis and learn to make you easier while assembly the model (how you put the gear and servo) and now i make the better one than before, simple, stronger and easier to assembly the gear because i change the position and the space to assembly the gear. I also provided the guide for the gear rotations.
Note : The other detail is similar to the last submission before
Thanks, Giga

#9 Direct drive Venus box by alexisd
Hi,
I'm proposing a design based on the fact that both the cam from the Venus box and the SG90 servo have a maximum displacement of 180°. Since there is no reduction or multiplication ratio needed for the servo to fully open and close the box, I attached the servo directly to the cam. This way, the system doesn't require any gears or pulleys to operate, thus reducing the amount of moving components and improving the reliability of the system. Concerning the 5 seconds opening time for the box, this can simply be done with the program. If you need an example of such program just let me know. Also feel free to contact me for any questions regarding the design.
Best regards,
Alexis

#4 Venus Box_2 by Gregorius Giga
Hi!
Thankyou so much for your feedback! Really helpful! I just attached the revision about what you requested. I thing the design for the servo mounted is really cool not to small and not too big, simple but strong! Please check the information on the rendering images attached and i also provided the 3D STEP Files to make you easier while checking the model. Please give your feedback and tell me if you need a modification or if something is missing.
Thankyou, Giga

#1 Venus Box - Modified by davidm3
"CAM" has been modified with a 32P 128T gear. "COVER" now has attached to it a 130x130mm plate. STEP files, which can be imported into Fusion360, are attached.

#2 Modification of Venus Box Mods by MyZ
Hi michaelb4!
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to participate this contest. This is the result of my design. Using gears with a 1:2 ratio. The gear on the servo will be easy to install because I designed it so that it can be paired with the "horn" built-in accessories of the servo. If when printed using a 3d printer there is a size error, You can give me a message. I will provide the revision file for free if there is a revision.
The file I attached is STP. You can open and edit in fusin 360 easily.

#5 Venus Box - Modified - SG90 by davidm3
Hi, I'm submitting a new idea that is driven 1:1 with a pulley. It uses a 2" ID O-ring. I also included the pulley that will mount to the servo horn. Any questions or comments please let me know. Thanks!

#11 VenusBox cad crowd V2 by Joebus
Hi, thank you very much for the opportunity. This version has the cam with an attachable gear driven by a servo located underneath the assembly. The gear assembly is in a box. Anything can be changed if needed. I'm trying to finish up another version that aligns more strictly with your requests. Just let me know if anything needs changing.

@Myz,
as long as i can import the files to 360 so I can edit them that is fine. Need to keep the scales the same etc.
i am only learning doing tutorials on how to use 360 at the moment.

@joebus, yes i will likely use a SG90 servo. mounted to the baseplate that would be attached to the cover

Hello. Is the servo a basic SG90 servo. What are the gear specs that you will be mating to?
Wed, 15 Sep 2021 20:32:19 +0000
Can I use Solidworks instead cuz the files are already solidworks files

Hi Thanks for the contest.
Could you give your informations about the gear to create ? Number of tooth, inner diameter, tooth shape ... ?

IFGS: 30 Year Service Award Pin
I am looking for someone to replicate the attached pin, or to create a close facsimile thereof. I am open to design suggestions; one of my ideas is to add three "X"s onto the pedestal of the dragon under the "IFGS"; perhaps as "xXx" or as three "X's of the same size with the center one raised at half the height of the other two "X"s. The pin is about 3 inches in height. We need 10 of these items. They are Service Awards pins for the 30th anniversary of the IFGS (www.ifgs.org). If you are willing and able to do this, I'd like a price quote and delivery schedule, please! We'd like the material to be silver, in a non-tarnish formulation if this is possible. Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter. Sincerely, Olan Knight IFGS Society Board Member
Russian Doll Maze Variant
Hello Designers! I am looking for a variant of the "Russian Doll Maze Puzzle" on Thingiverse. Here's a little bit about the project: I run a small home business in Utah that provides 3D printing services for the local area. Lately, we've been donating our extra machine time to making these puzzles for charity (Anti-boredom bags for children in hospital waiting rooms.) They've been a massive hit among the kids, however we've been hearing that the locking mechanism is 'unsnapping' over time while the puzzle is assembled, making them inoperable. We'd like to remedy that for the future! A few required design change specifications: 1. Cylindrical instead of Octagonal 2. The maze "Locking" mechanism needs a fix. Currently, it snaps "Up" into position, however the clicking mechanism is small and wears down, resulting in older puzzles 'locking' inside because they've come undone. We're looking for innovative solutions to solve this issue (potentially rotating sideways at the end, instead of up, to add another safety mechanic) 3. Thick bottom and outer wall for embossing names, if chosen. Needs to be strong enough for children to not break with regular usage. 4. Difficulty of maze appropriate to 8 and up age levels. Dimensions overall approximately 4" height, 2 1/2" round. 1/8" to 5/16" inner wall construction (solid).
Celtic pocket watch
A 3d pendant in the shape of a pocket watch. It should come in two pieces, top and bottom. The radius shall be ca. 4 cm and the depth 1,8cm. There needs to be a 1,8 cm round hole in the top half, where a gem will be fitted. This case will be 3d printed in ceramic, so it is light enough to be carried around a ladies neck. The casing does not need to be closed, and it should follow Celtic knot designs. See attached for inspiration.

"They Might Be Giants" School Award
I am a local community member working with a K-8 school principal to develop a custom award for two members of their faculty to be given out each year. The award is called "They Might Be Giants" and it celebrates educators who have been the "shoulders" that younger educators have stood on. Think like a mentor, but more than that. Ultimately the creation from this contest will be 3D Printed and integrated into the final award. Think 6" - 8" high 3D giant. I'm open to ideas, but the attached pictures provides a good references of the giant idea and it supporting people on its shoulders. If you notice the male and female standing on the giant's shoulders in the reference photo you get a sense of them looking into the horizon. Where the Giant has a sense of forward motion. It is the combination of the sense of movement toward the horizon, and the eagerness to look toward the future that I to capture with this 3D element. The working concept for this award is based on an award presented by the Advertising Hall of Fame called "The Golden Ladder" Award (See attached photo). In place of the golden ladder will be the giant element that this contest is looking to produce. The total height from the foot of the giant, to the top of the tallest head of the person standing on the giant's shoulders will be no more than 8" high
