We are a new venture specializing in the creation of Self-Heating Tumblers. Our tumblers (travel mugs) are quality made with precision and self-heat themselves by the press of a button. The button initiate a reaction inside the tumbler chambers, causing the interior to heat up.

We are looking for a concept/prototype design in 3D. We have attached design specifications and photos describing the product.
Has to be modern, slender, simple, and delicate culminating in an eye-catching fancy quality product. Preferably the exterior to be made of aluminum or heat-resistant metal.

The product is a hot cup system. The system has a generally cylindrical exterior member with a cylindrical side wall and with an open upper end and an open lower end. The exterior member is molded from a thermally insulating heat-resistant metal. The system also has a generally cylindrical interior
member with a cylindrical side wall with an open upper end and a lower end With a generally planar circular lower portion. The lower portion is formed with laterally spaced
downwardly extending parallel projections. The interior member is fabricated of a thermally conductive metallic material. A circular base is next provided With a central
section extending downwardly therefrom. The base is fabricated of a resilient clear elastomeric material and is coupled to the interior surface of the exterior member adjacent to the lower end thereof a chamber is formed between the interior member and exterior member and base. A heat generating fluid is located Within the chamber. A generally hemispherically shaped trigger is formed of a exible metallic material located above the central section of the base.

We are looking for a concept that looks similar to the Starbucks 2012 Stainless Steel Tumbler. **A photo has been attached**

Hey robhare, an explanation list for the numbered parts is provided within the attachments. Dimensions are open-ended, however preferably if you follow something similar to below.
Dimensions: 2.7” wide at the widest point of the lid x 7.0”H x 2.6” at middle point of mug x 2.5” diameter at base.

Also, preferably it should look very similar to the "Starbucks 2012 Black Stainless Steel Tumbler".

Stylish Case for a Car Key
We are looking for some concept sketches for a key case. An innovative key case design which can hold a typical car key (attached picture). The case itself should be able to fit on a key ring. The key should be completely hidden inside the case until the case is opened (by some creative means or mechanism) to reveal the key, either in whole or part – at least, so the user can press the buttons on the key itself. We are looking for a high-end, upscale design, which combines smooth-functionality with luxury and desirability. A pleasure to look and feel, a pleasure to simply hold in your hand. A status object and a pleasure to use, again & again - perhaps damped - with an extremely desirable finish, perhaps piano black, brushed steel or rose gold ... following an interface design associated with the modern iPhone-types. However all design finishes will be considered.

Animal Hideaway
I would like to design a more moden hideaway for guinea pig, hamsters, rabbit etc. I would like to keep still wood pine house since these animals will bite it up. I would like it to be more of a luxury look but still in the same sizing because most customers will buy a small starter cage to fit it in. I will post an example in the pictures of sizing of cage. Guinea Pigs have an issue pulling there food and water bowls in there hide aways and spill everything. I would like the food and water bowls to be attached to the house with a bowl holder where I can remove the bowls on and off to fill up. I would like the food and water bowl to be ceramic. A window can be made where the animal sticks there head out the window to the bowl drink and eat the food easily while inside there home. Attached are pictures of a hideway would like it around that same size. Food and water bowl would like it to be more that shape. Animal Cage picture the hide away would have to fit in that cage size.
Macbook Pro case design
The case will be 2 parts. A top and a bottom. We'll use this design as the basis for a case we plan to manufacture. See attachments for dimensions and measurements. The design should be able to easily scale to fit both the 13" and 15" models, but the 15" is our priority. You must have a retina Macbook to determine the exact curve of the case and to make sure there are holes on the sides near the bottom for the vents ( These cases are both similar to what we're looking for: Any of the following file formats are acceptable: .stl .3ds .dae .blend
