The gentlemans shaver

in 3D Modeling Design held by cmglobal
Contest Closed
We need a design for a shaver handle. The design should have an exclusive look to it, not "spacey" as many established brands are. Keywords for the design could be "gentleman, scandinavian, hipster, modern man, elegant, James Bond, simple" and such.

What we need is a design made in CAD, and ultimately files ready for production, our current setup requires .dwg or .dwt files. But we would like to see an realistic 3d render of the handle.

There are though some specifications for the connection between the handle and the razor blades that should be met. Since the connection is an standard set of from our razor-blade production partner. In the attached files there are an example of an handle and the lock mechanism, so the way the blades are connected and the sliding lock works should be thought into the design.

It's for the scandinavian market, so the design should fit in there, and should ofcourse have a good grib, size and weight to it. We have a target weight of minimum 50-60gr to the handle.
The design is the single most important thing. But also things as color, ergonomy, overall look and feel plays a part.
Don't Wants:
We dont want an design that looks like the large established brands, the design should have either incorporated the lock and connection mechanism, or at least it should be possible to make or incorporate in the design

Still looking for more designs? I'm working on some right now but i'm not sure if this project is even still active.

A suggested link for an established brand with a similar concept;,default,sc.html Just needs more 90 degree angles and it's contemporary.

Hi Eduardo, Im not that familiar with all the different software, but as I see it on google etc. yes you can. It should be able to export/save it as a .dwg format

Hi can I use CATIA or Unigraphics NX software to design the handle?

Brick of Money
The goal of this project is to design a desk ornament that is a conversation piece. There are 3 aspects to this product: 1: The foundation: A rectangle of solid metal. Should have an expensive high end look. A bar of silver is the only thing I can think of as an example foundation. However, I am going for more of a brushed nickel look. 2: The casing that sits on top of the medal foundation. This casing is either made of glass or plastic and will be glued to the medal foundation. 3. $500 in one dollar bills will be inside the glass casing. The attached image is not high end looking but should give you a basic idea of the kind of product we are looking to develop.
