IFGS: 30 Year Service Award Pin

in 3D Printing Design held by Olan Knight
Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
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

I understand that the contest has stoped for a while but if will resume, this is the model i came up with. If it's needed i can cut it in half because it might consume a lot of material in the manufacturing process. This is just for viewing the model itself it is not the final product. If the contest will resume I will provide a final product. I will be glad if the buyer can contact me and provide some feedback about the model. Thank You!

The Board likes this pin the best, but we'd like the FONT used for the "IFGS" and the "xXx" changed to either Old English Text (if possible) or to Times New Roman.

Can you send me an updated image file?

Sadly, that is the only picture that I have of the 20 year pin.

Do you have any other picture or design that can be used to see more details on this? It's a bit hard to see all the details on the dragon due to silver reflecting...

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
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).
