#19 Poopholder2 by Ram Mohan Kartha
I made this design considering quality as well as easier productivity, could be made by using paper or card board. The dimensions i have given are based on cardboard of thickness 1 mm. The advantage is that it could be made from a single piece of cardboard making your need of producing it in 1-2 $ possible. It needs sticking tape at 2 positions that also have bee shown in the pdf file provided. I can upload the orginal model file in any format if you need
Hope you will like my work ....Thank you

#20 poo bag by DaBu
This is a model I created myself from a A4 sheet of cardboard and a piece of rope. I thought that this is the only way to approach your problem: a 3d model wouldn't be as convincing. If you think I might have something here (if you like the design) I can work on it to improve functionality (dimensions, ease of operating, etc ..) and i'll provide you the CAD drawing for cutout and crease.

can it be a fusion of plastic and card board where the poop is collected in the cardboard part and only that part is thrown away after use. The plastic part is used again.....????

Hi Jnatzic

Would be a one-time product

>Bio-Degradeable is important...why I think Cardboard / paper best.

>Easy to assemble...perhaps sold 'collapsed'. And user 'pops' open to use. easier to build / transport
>
>I think it is important that it is not too large when assembled and used, as users will want to throw away in bins made for dog droppings (they are not that large)
>
>Needs to be reasonable 'air tight' so doesn't smell too much on the way to the dustbin.
>
>I was imagining something that maybe had a cardboard box / tube with two cardboard handles that could be dropped over dropping, then the handles pulled to close bottom of box and scoop at the same time.
>
>But maybe that might be too complex too design?
>
>I will be guided by you.

I feel the crux of this project is to get a really functional design that is not too complex to mass-produce at around $1

Will this be a one-time use tool or will it include doggy bags or something that makes it reusable?

Faith Based Jewelry_1_Christianity
We are a start up launching a line of jewelry based on faith/religion. We are looking to launch with a number of necklaces and bracelets so we are looking for highly innovative designs for pendants and bracelet charms which signify faith based meaning. We want our jewelry line to be worn everyday (not just on occasions) as a charm so that one is never without the blessings of one's faith. We want it to be an essential companion to a user, through thick and thin, to give them the reassurance that one is never alone. We expect: 2 designs for necklace pendants 2 designs for the bracelet charms The designs should be made for metal (sterling silver).
iPad Accessory
To create a sun visor that would fit an iPad Air 2 and the newest Pro 9.7" model. It would need to attach to the magnetic system (so that it would not fall off during windy days). And be very aesthetically pleasing. All buttons and camera should be able to be accesses when the visor is mounted.

iPhone/Android Accessory Design Enhancement
This consumer product is an accessory that provides enhanced usability to mobile phones and tablets. The latest design of our "Band" is two parts: 1. Round Base that attaches to the back of the phone (made from a low-friction polymer like polyethylene) 2. A "band" that overlaps with the Round Base (1) and rotates/spins around it. (made from polyethylene over-molded with rubber to provide elasticity to the top band part) The rubber part of the band elongates so that an individual's finger can be placed underneath the band and above the base. The elasticity part is important so it can accommodate different finger sizes. The product allows users to hold the phone more securely. Our current challenge is the design of the "Band" (2). This is where we need the help. As shown in the attached STL file for the Band, there are two circles on either side of the flap that holds the finger down. These circle were put there to provide some added elasticity to the rubber piece. While it does functionally work well, the current design does not look durable or very elegant. We'd like to rethink the band design to make it look incredibly user-friendly, allowing the band to stretch upright to accommodate different finger sizes, while being functionally superior to the current design. Designer will need to provide STL files for my prototyping company to be able to work with.
