I am looking for someone to design a case for a very simple TV remote. I need someone who can take a design from concept to finished manufacturing drawings. I will provide basic dimensions and design concept, but need someone to advise and draft it into reality.
The remote will be rectangular, 6 inches wide, 9 inches long, and one inch deep. The design must incorporate all switches, replaceable battery compartment, LEDs, etc.
Don't Wants:
I do not want a traditional remote design. This remote is an assistive device for disabled persons.
  1. AutoCAD
Additional Information
The remote size has been reduced to 10.16 cm (4 inches) wide, by 20.32 cm (eight inches) long, by 2.54 cm (one inch) in depth. My chosen material is black plastic, textured for easy grip, and durable enough to withstand being dropped from 125 cm (4 feet one inch) without breaking or the cover opening.

The cover, which features small openings for power on/off, a small indicator light and volume up/down switches, and a large opening for access to the keys, needs a method of easy to open and close. The preference would be a fixed hinge on one side, and some type of durable and secure fastener/clips on the opposite side to release the cover for opening. The cover is required to open because behind it, and over the actual keypad, will be a paper legend to identify what each key is for, which in turn is covered by a flexible piece of clear plastic to protect the legend, yet still allow key depression.

The battery compartment should be designed so that opening it and inserting or removing batteries is straightforward, within the constraints of making it safe for small children and the elderly. If the battery compartment lid comes off completely, it may be easily dropped and lost, so a hinged design may be better. The batteries will be double 'A' in size, and two in quantity.

The buttons that will be needed are for power on and off, volume up and down, to 'learn' and to 'set' (see diagrams)

An adequate amount of information is extremely important for running a successful design contest on CAD Crowd.

Please include notes on chosen material (plastics/metal/etc.), design aesthetics, colors, type of battery, hand drawn sketches (if available), button size, which buttons must be included (on/off, numbers, etc.), links/pictures of competitor products (for reference) and any other information that will allow designers to be successful with your project.

Urinal Puck Cage
Our company provides a product for cleaning urinals and drains using an environmentally friendly, organic urinal puck. We would like to update our puck cage/holder design. Our current design is attached as "Reference Design 2". Our current design is 2 piece with a flat bottom mat and the puck cage attaching on top by 3 hooks/barbs. This assembly is acceptable, but slow. We would like the assembly of the cage and puck to be fast, so minimizing any assembly is ideal. Attached is a single piece concept reference attached as "Concept Reference 1". Lastly, we are looking to make a visually appealing, interesting design that will be unique in the category.

Silicone Toddler Placemat
We want to make a silicone placemat for toddlers with extruding bowls (probably 3 bowls). The shape should be a dinosaur (maybe stegosaurus or t-rex). Please see attached elephant for an idea of what we are looking for. Simple yet elegant and appealing. The mat size should be 10"x7.7"x1". The bowls should comprise most of the mat, besides perhaps a 1" to maybe 1/2" border. The edges should allow for spilling a drink and the liquid would not run onto the table. Past the raised edges though, the mat should slope down towards the table. The idea is that the toddler (or even adult really) cannot get his fingers underneath the mat because it slopes towards the table. We also need a small credit card style tool to lift up the mat since it will basically be impossible to pull up from the table once you lay it down.
