KLEIN 2-Way Radio

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
This is a small desktop 2-way radio. Instead of having it on your hip, or a big bulky dispatch radio, this is the size of a portable radio in a desktop box.
Make it aesthetically pleasing, but also a product that would be easy to 3D print or at least not overly expensive to tool.
Don't Wants:
Not sure if there is anything we dont want.
The attached image we made in photoshop. It is horrible but gives the concept.
Company Logo:
  1. no requirement here. We need to see JPG for initial review

Here is a very rough draft of the design, it is basically the same as the sketch that you supplied. I just wanted to create a base and get some feedback from you to guide me to the perfect design. How detailed do you want the design? as far as fitting and mounting the internal electronics. I look forward to hearing back from you.

What do you think about this design? The logo is on there just as an image for now, but I will make sure it is embossed on the final draft (tracing the logo is time consuming). The attached folder contains images of all of the sides.

#7 DESK_RADIO by Pamelazaldumbide
I tried to develop a model most both simple and aesthetically possible. It consists of a plastic case conformed by two pieces, a flat one in contact with the desk, on which the radio relies, and the upper one shown in the picture with all the holes need to allow buttons to emerge. The shell of this radio is designed to avoid square corners, the purpose of this is to save material and also favor the ejection of the part from the mold of plastic injection. Each Volume and channel buttons have been simplified into one trying to have the least amount of holes in the casing so the plastic injection mold design might be simpler (less pins). At the inner part of upper case, some reinforcement ribs should exist at the curved edge of every button hole in order to give the case more resistence

#24 2-Way Radio - Black Cobra Series by mcluka by Luka B.
Hello, this is my second entry. It is very similar to my first one, I only changed the colours and the design. The dimensions are the same. It is a modern an futuristic design made out of ABS plastic. It would be a very simple product to manufacture (plastic molding).
Feel free to ask any questions or give me any suggestions regarding this competition. Regards, mcluka

We have picked a winner, now just trying to figure out this very confusing website so we can hire him and get the full specs to him so he can design it fully.

Similar Contests on Cad Crowd

One World Bracelet
We are designing a silicone bracelet that will consist of 14 equal-sized, interconnected sections. 7 of the bracelet sections will hold a small amount of water from each of the world’s 7 seas. The other 7 sections will contain small amounts of soil from the world’s 7 continents. The idea is that wearing a bracelet that contains samples of water and soil from around the world will make people feel more globally connected. The 7 sections that contain soil should be a light shade of brown and the sections that contain water should be a light shade of blue. We are open to each designer’s initial suggestions for specific colors to use and will provide feedback after receiving the initial designs. However, we would like both the brown and blue sections of the bracelet to be opaque (i.e. - non-translucent). Additionally, we would like to see two versions of the bracelet in all initial submissions…one that has the 7 sections of water on one side and the 7 sections of soil on the other side of the bracelet. And in the other version we would like to see alternating sections of soil, water, soil, water, etc. We will eventually have different sizes of the bracelet but for the initial design we can use a “medium” inner-circumference size of 7.5” (19 cm). We are looking to have a 3D CAD rendering for prototyping. We welcome feedback and submissions from designers who can suggest approaches for producing a bracelet like this that will need to have small amounts of water and soil injected into the bracelet sections at some point during or after the initial manufacturing process.

Hydro-cooler bath CONVEYOR project
Project is to design a conveyor system to transfer a range a products into a hydro-cooling bath, and then transfer the product through the bath and out the other end. Attached is a some more notes of the project and images of the products. The contents of the Pails and Bladder is hot Jams and Sources etc. Currently we don't know the thickness of the bladders when fill of the products but we can find this out once we have awarded the project. The attached files are only ideas from our customer, they would prefer to have the maximum time of immersion in the bath. Max floor space available is 8m, so as close to 8m of immersion would be ideal. Someone that has done work with Hydro-cooling bath conveying or works for a company that builds this type of equipment will be a great help. Please let us know if you require more information from us before taking on this project.
