We are looking for someone to help us replicate a shell case for a MacBook Pro in a CAD format drawing that will function and fit the desired measurements. Our goal is to be able to take this design to a manufacturer for building. This case will include two parts: a top and a bottom. These parts need to be able to be built separately.

Please see attached PDF for measurements

This design should also be flexible enough to be adjustable so we can fit both the 15” and the 13” models. These models will be first produced in a CNC environment so the file must work within those constraints.

The design should not include the bottom leg pads.

The case we are looking to replicate is

We have most of the measurements but a second look would help.

Wants: someone who either has a mac or can get their hands on one to see the coverture on the top and bottom case. Something that will actually can be produced.

Main focus is on the 15" model case.

Extra: additional Money can be earned if also completing the older version of the macbook pro case. also included in the PDF. 2012 version. $50.
Design details, and function. It must be a size that will function and fit a macbook pro.
Don't Wants:
something that when made won’t fit on an actual computer.
  1. AutoCAD
Additional Information
These formats will all work. .bbcd; .cad; .igs; .iges; .sat; .3dm; .sldprt; .step; .stp; .stl; .x_t; .x_b.

Since it will be a 3 dimensional drawings .iges works best. if the software can make that type of format then use it.

Side vents on the 15” and 13” retina displays, I don’t think I mentioned these in my original doc but they are very important as the machines would overheat with these blocked please see the images for measurements and location.
They start about 1” in from both sides of the front bottom of the laptop. And are approximately 1 7/16 inches wide and 1/16 inches deep.
The 15” 2012 model does not have these.

Knee-based Travel Mug Holder - New Product Design / Prototype
Commuters on buses and trains don't have cup holders, and so they are left with the balancing act of holding their travel mug in one hand, while trying read the paper or work on their laptops with their other hand. This sucks, causes spills, and is super uncomfortable. Commuters need something that's compact and foldable that can then open and attach comfortably to their knee (or another body part?) that will securely hold travel mugs of different sizes.
