Hello,
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.
Thanks,
Jake

#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

#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

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.

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.

Large 3D bookshelf backstop
Inspired by the historical visual progression of mainboards, we are looking for an innovative design to use as the back of a large shelving unit. We are looking for a design to go in a display case. The display case will then be used as a holder for glass shelves. Think of it almost like a glass bookshelf. Except, instead of the back being a cheap piece of board held on with tack nails like a shelf from IKEA, the back will be the design you come up with. Dimensions: 8ft wide 3ft high 1-3in deep The case is being used to display tech items. So we would like the design to reflect technology. Think mother board but on our scale. The original thought was to collect old motherboards, including ram and cpus. We were then going to lay them out on a 8x3 piece of plywood and glue them. Instead of this, we now want to get a design that a CNC machine can make. Material used: Wood and old metal. The design should induce a feeling of technological progression. So from left to right the design should transition from old circuit board tech, to current tech, to possible future tech (this part is open for interpretation) As an example, in the attached picture, the green part is what we want to replace with our 3D circuit board idea. Please note that the picture is just one from google and does not represent the actual shelf we are building The entire shelf will sit on top of a table, meaning that it will be at eye level for the average person.

Locking Mechanism Design for Consumer Product
We are looking for a locking mechanism for our upcoming product that is simple and minimalistic, yet very robust in how it locks the two pieces together. When locked there will be lateral stresses forcing the pieces to slide apart. We want there to be virtually no chance of the pieces coming apart by accident while locked, and the mechanism must be simple and intuitive. Items that must reamin the same are the length and width of the objects. Enjoy full freedom to change the trapizod shape. Please refer to attached images for some of our previous ideas. These are simplistic, but they are either not aestheticly pleasing or they do not provide a reliable lock while the product is in use. We have uploaded 4 different file types because we wern't sure what your preference would be. Please also take a look at the attached images to see the other mecanisms that we have designed thus far. These are the ones that we like for simplicity and minimalism sake but they are not the most effective or intuitive.
