Description:
The attached image "Installed prototype Attachment #1" is the current design of our patent pending lawn edger. It prevents the grass and weeds from growing over the edge of the hard surface.

We have been asked by the client to:
1. Make the current prototype longer
2. Make it flexible so that it will bend around soft curves and 90-degree corners when installed as well as for packaging purposes (see Attachment #2).
3, Product design length shall be customizable by cutting or other methods of users' desired length.
4. The desired cost should be under $25
Wants:
Note: Using the attached file CAD Lawn Edge Design-12" (Attachment #4)

1. Lengthen the entire device from 96" to 240" (preferred length is 240 inches)
a.) Vertical below and above surface barrier component Dimensions (LxWxH) are 96x 0.88 x 6 inches or 2,438.4X 22.352 x 152.4 mm
b.) The horizontal surface barrier must be flexible to bend/expandable to cover corners and curves Dimensions (LxWxH) are 96 x .1875 x 1.25 inches or 2,438.4 x 4.7625 x 31.75 mm

2. Redesign the lawn edger to make it flexible so that it can bend around curves, and corners, with a minimum of 90 and up to a 180-degree angle. Keep in mind that the product will be rolled for packaging/retail. See Attachment #3 for reference of similar products packaged.

(Note: Contestant can submit a draft for review and feedback )
Don't Wants:
1. New CAD designs in solid works

2. A 3D animated video, demonstrating how it is unwrapped from the packaging (like Attachment #3), installed in the grass, and bends around curves and hard corners in both directions.
Software:
  1. SolidWorks
Additional Information
What I Don't Want:
- Product design that does not use standard manufacturing equipment and tooling.
- Product that does not meet the evaluation criteria provided above.

Want :
1. New CAD designs in solid works
2. A 3D animated video demonstrating how it is unwrapped from the packaging (like Attachment #3), installed in the grass, and bends around curves and hard corners in both directions.

Yes, 4 hours would be sufficient. Thanks.

I will see if it can be set for 4 hrs. Will that be enough time? You will need to watch for it to be reopened.

Hello @marcp1, I request you to open the contest for few hours. I was done with the modifications and ready to upload the design. But the contest ended.

Thank you all for participating and asking questions for clarification. I’m looking forward to seeing the creative ideas that will be submitted.

Please see the response to the questions provided:
1.) Do you have a particular material in mind that the edger should be made from?
(Ans) No, there’s no particular material required. The current material submitted but not final is polyurethane. We are looking for the best material and solution to meet customer's requirements.

2.) What is the minimum radius you want for going round bends?
(Ans) The center Please see the attached sketch. Let me know if it doesn’t answer your questions.

3.) Attachment is not a CAD file as you have stated. It is only a PDF. So, I am confused as to what it is you want. Just change the drawing or do you want a CAD model and a new drawing? You are also VERY specific about what you DO NOT want in a video. That seems odd. Can you verify that you DO NOT WANT a new design OR a video.?

(Ans) My apology for the confusion.
(a) The final drawing will need to be in CAD model (for designers and engineers) but we will also need a pdf (management).
(b) Please proceed with providing new CAD drawings. However, will also submit current CAD drawings just in case that helps.
(c) The current design was provided as a reference for making changes or adding to accomplish the goal, which is flexibility (see attached) and extended length (3 -20 ft). There are key components to use in your new or revised design. The first is a surface barrier that sits on the hard surface (cerement, pavement, asphalt, etc.); and the second is the vertical barrier that goes into the ground. Together the current design eliminates the need to edge and prevents overgrowth on the surface.
How the designer chooses to design and the type of material used to design is up to the contestant.
(d) Shall we alter the dimensions as per our design modifications? Yes, the dimensions can be altered. The main requirement per customer is to extend the length from 1 ft. to 20 ft, with 3 ft being the minimum.
4.) Shall we alter the dimensions as per our design modifications?
Ans) The dimensions can be altered to meet requirements. However, the requested length is 3ft to 20f.
Problem: The current design prevents grass from growing on the hard surface. It has a low profile so it won’t interfere with the lawn mower (see video). However, the customer needs this design to be 20ft (min. 3ft) and flexible to bend around curves/corners. This is difficult with a plastic surface barrier (horizontal part) won’t allow flexible bends.

Hi. An interesting design.
I have two questions
1. Do you have a particular material in mind that the edger should be made from?
2. What is the minimum radius you want for going round bends?

Thanks

Biological Cell Cluster
I am looking to obtain a 3D CAD model of a biological cell cluster in order to transfer it to a multiphysics simulation software (COMSOL). The cluster will consist of 120 'cells' in the shape of a hyper-dodecahedron (https://theory.org/geotopo/120-cell/ ). Each side of each dodecahedron must measure ~5um.
Universal Phone Mount
Hi Cad Crowd! We're in need of adjusting one of the components of our product. We have an existing 3D model that we need adjusted. We are keeping the same top and bottom connection the same. The basic design is similar to a standard universal phone mount for a car. We want to use the same mechanism as shown in the pictures and then adjust it to our requirements. The system will be 3 major components. Part 1: Back piece that has top connection and bottom connection which won't be changed much except for the width. This area will be where the gears/spring/everything sits on. Part 2: This will be the two "wing walls" that extrude left and right that will be sat on the back plate area. Part 3: Will enclose this area and have a bottom stub where the phones sit. We play on adding some little foam on the front of part 3 and on the insides of the wing walls. We think that the gear mechanism can be reduced in size and that we can flip it so that they sit above the wing walls (and in the center of the system).
UAV Reaper Drone
Need complete design for Reaper Drone in solid Works for each part of the stucture (Fuselage+ wings+ wheels) no need for engine and inside equipements, and i don't need rocket design and no need also for 2D drafting
Mosquito Trap Redesign
We want to redesign our UV LED mosquito trap, an outdoor product to be placed in tent, outdoor café, farms to reduce the damage by mosquito. It should be simple, solid, low priced, slim, good quality and fashionable- a mid-way between high-tech and disposable traps. We would like its housing to be partially transparent for the visibility of LED light. Also, we prefer the entry point for mosquito to be a maze design. Type: Mosquito trap Target Audience: All age groups Competitors: enclosed in attachments Design: Maze entry point, partially transparent body, UV LED light, PCB board, cotton stand to put cotton soaked in mosquito attractant liquid, 2AAA battery case Material: Plastic Any software is acceptable if STL format file can be provided Any further questions, please feel free to comment.
Setra Nano Design Options
There is an attached image of a new product concept, which is essentially a wall-mounted sensor that shows a light ring indicator of red or green. The product is designed to cover a single-gang US electrical wall box, similar in size to a wall switch. Once wall-mounted, it stands off the wall about 10 mm, where the light ring can be visible from front or side. We want some industrial design options to look at that are different from our design.
