Description:
Race Car Engine Cover Mold. +/- 2 or 3 mm - does not need to be perfection. I have pics and dimensions. Hoping you can scale it off the pics unless you are Local (Atlanta). I will be available during the design for extra pics of measurements. Hoping this will be a 3 or 4 hour draw for some one.

We will take the drawing and cut a mold from foam on a large CNC Router and lay up in CF or FG.

Here is a link to pictures.

Additional Information
attached pic with measurements - please let me know if you need more.

Sorry for the imperial measurements

Greetings erikl1, I have attached the file in .SLDPRT format. If you need the .STEP file you can inform me here.

Hey there, I have a question. Do you need mold design to manufacture this car engine cover or you need STEP file for this Engine cover ??

Daza - I dont have a 3D scanner, my experience with them has not been satisfactory for angular parts. I investigated this route

AmarSource - Did you see the liink to all of the pics?

RK - not sure what you are asking?

RIchards - When I did CAD 100 years ago we used to pull images in and "trace" them and scale the part. IS that not a thing any more?

I dont want to pull a mold from the original part for various reasons, we have looked at this.

Thank You All for looking at my project!

better can you Shear the Step File Engine cover .

The provided image doesn't give enough information to complete the job. Can you please provide Top, Side and Front view of the component with necessary dimensions?
Wed, 15 Mar 2023 04:58:01 +0000
Could you please make a 3D digital scan of the part? This way we have the exact dimensions.

Without precise interface geometry (the 3D shape of the engine bay opening, locating/fastening pin positions, interior 'stay-out' volumes for the engine, intake/vent sizes & locations etc) this approach will almost inevitably fail. Something won't fit, there will be gaps or interferences that you won't discover until you've made the first part off the mould. This means you somehow need to make and provide a full set of 3D measurements of the existing cover and its corresponding interfaces on the car. Alternatively, have you considered making a 'splash' mould from the existing engine cover to reproduce the geometry and going down that more traditional route?

Cost to design.

Sorry I probably need to edit some of the info, I was not clear exaclty how the contest worked initially.

I went to DM my e-mail and I realized that is not allowed. Thanks for the info.

erikl1, I'm a bit confused. Is this a contest or a job posting? You reference cost multiple times. Do you mean the cost of the design or the cost to manufacture?
Tue, 14 Mar 2023 21:01:42 +0000
erikl1 and alizain, you both can communicate via DM on cadcrowd. Sharing personal details isn't allowed. Also, alizain, if you post a design, that will automatically create a chat room for you both to utilize.

I have some difficulties to share pics on cad crowd before final design for discussion. Therefore, I want to send some pics to your contact if allowed.

Yes, I have the car. I will provide measurements later today. Was not sure anyone would be interested, should already have shared the measurements. Thanks again!

Suspended carbon fibre hammock bath
As part of my home renovation I would like to create a stunning and comfortable carbon fibre hammock bath, which will be suspended by two wall mounted supports. The bath will be manufactured by taking the 3D CAD model created by this design contest and creating a wooden blank using a CNC machine. The wooden blank will then be wrapped in carbon fibre cloth for strength, waterproofing and aesthetics. I have some dimensions, weight specifications and other requirements such as the location of the bath filler, bath waste, water pipes and head rest.
Design of a smart speaker for users with speech and motor difficulties
With Nuvoic Home, we aim to build a prototype of the world’s first smart speaker for users with speech and motor difficulties, allowing them to interact and communicate independently with others and their surroundings via their own, unique voice. In this EU-funded project (https://voiceitt.com/nuvoic-project), imec partners up with the Israel-based VoiceItt to incorporate their state-of-the-art dysarthric speech recognition software into a smart speaker. The goal is to (a) investigate which technological possibilities are available by contemporary standards and (b) adapt the device following a design thinking philosophy to ensure a match with the target group. People with speech and motor difficulties need to be able to interact with the smart speaker via their own unique voice. Auditory feedback is given via an incorporated speaker. Visual feedback can be given via a LED-ring which resides on the PCB of the microphone array (see further for details). They often have a secondary user which can help them in assisting functions such as installation of the device and one-time setup steps. All things concerning authentication, registration and others where a screen is needed, will be done on a separate accompanying device and are thus out of scope of this design contest. For the first prototype, we have yet to decide on the design of the speaker enclosure. The main components have been identified in a first iteration of the project, with exception of the specific touchscreen. In attach you find some personas we created for the intended users (primary group) and the assisting persons (secondary group) By organizing this design contest, we hope to receive several possible designs for the smart speaker that (a) allow to integrate the components specified below and (b) fit well with the restrictions and specifications imposed by our particular target group. The design submissions will be presented to our project partners and an expert panel, who will rate them on a couple of criteria: feasibility (do all the parts fit into the design), aesthetics (subjective opinion on the look and feel) and fit with the target group (ease of use, simplicity and UX tailored to users with limited fine motor skills). At the end of this review process, we will award the winning design(s). The winner and first runner-up of the contest will receive a total sum of $100.

Convert hand drawn elevations of a house into autocad. Very important, some of the elements and or materials on the sketch might not be drawn accurately (i.e roof tails or corbels, roof tiles, columns etc. The final product is expected to be professional. Attached are the scanned Elevations and feel free to request CAD floor plans, roof plan and sections for reference.
