Chocolate Melangeur

in 3D Modeling Design held by Banks

Description:
I need a stone mill grinder powered by an electric motor. There will be two granite stones weighing circa 10 kg each that will spin on top a granite base, which weighs 15 kg. The base will be at the bottom of a stainless steel pan, which will also contain the 2 stones inside it. The pan will spin by the action of an electric engine/reductor, as its base will be locked on top a metal spinning disc connected to the engine/reductor shaft. The two stones will spin in opposite directions by the action of the spinning base. The stones need to apply a force on the base in order for them to fine ground cocoa bits. In order to that, a system of coils needs to be built so that a force can be applied on each stone. The stones and coil system will have to be easily detachable from the pan, as well as, the pan itself from the disc that holds it, so that chocolate can poured in another recipient.

Hi,base on :
1) Granite Base is dia.360mm x 5mmT ( rough sketch II) ,but latest discussion panel (22 Oct 2014) , the thickness have been change 50mm
2) Stones , 100mm Height x dia 200mm discussion panel (21 Oct 2014) , recent discussion panel (22 Oct 2014), the dia. shown is dia 210mm
Please let us know which parameter we need to focus on
3) Design :
a) Driven of the turning disc via protruded shaft.... Does the design need show this drive mechanism?
b) How do you intend to handle pan after grinding process ? by winch ?
c) Positioning (Center) the stone and pan, pan static via fix structure and stone are by track..is this concept
acceptable

I may need to submit the revised file reflecting on the above explanation.

Have nice day....
Collaborating towards excellence..
Thank You :)

Everything steel related on this melangeur will be stainless steel. I will print the components and hand it over to someone else to cut them all, weld them and put everything together.

I guess the answer to your question is the design is a concept

hi, is the design you are after a concept, or do you want designed components. for example, the structure that your grinding machine will sit on will probably be steel or aluminium sections, channel, 'I'-beam or tubulars. where you are getting this manufactured and if material is available, will have an impact on what is used. this is why I ask, concept or detail-design.

Can I use Autodesk Inventor? What output file types are you looking for? Inventor can export to all of the common file types.

Hi, not being able to use other software like 3dsMax,Rhino Solidworks etc. , reduces a lot the possibility to have a good project.

Just an observation, the scrappers are positioned in between the the stones

I attached one more sketch. As the bow spins chocolate gets stuck along the the walls. It is necessary a metal scrapper positioned very close to the bow´s walls to get them back inside the mixture. If you look at the 1st sketch, flip over it 90 degrees to your left, look from right to left and you will get the picture in the Rough Sketch II. Thanks

I attached a rough description of the project. The pan has 30 litres and a diameter of 360 mm. The stones have 100 mm of height and 200 mm in diameter.

hi, do you have any rough sketches indicating size and arrangement, this would help to understand what you are after

shop mock up
HI i need few slides on a mockup for a shop front i'm opening. I need to have 3 main area, On the front counter, bit of space on the left, a hot food display with the GN 1/3 total 6, followed by a hot grill plate around 65/60 followed by cool display for sald ingredient around 9 1/3 gn, so total around 1.1. mtr. Front top a glass 30 cm high with no top see the attache pictures. I have attached photo of the shop today, We need to modify the shop name from Grill and go to "italian street food store, i attache the brand for porpoise. a drawing with the actual measures of the shop. On the back i would remove the top price lists and would put this on the left side leaving the top free. REnedring photo need to be modified with new name and similar counter
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.

Digital LCD Name Tag for wine glass
We are developing a digital “Name Tag” (LCD screen) for wine glasses that will communicate with a mobile app. so people will be able to communicate with the tag via their smartphone and find their glass in case they can’t tell which wine glass is theirs...etc. We are looking for few design concept options for a prototype 3D design that we will print.
Unicycle
Hi all, thanks for checking out my contest! I am involved with a company that is looking to receive some entries for a "prototype" electric unicycle. If you aren't familiar let me give you a brief background. Remember the hoverboards last xmas?? The electric unicycle works on essentially the same principle (upside down pendulum theory) to achieve self balancing capability. The current offerings on the market just don't cut it, the plastics are basically thrown together around the requirements of a build, rather than incorporating the necessary components into the design for a smooth finish. I would like the final product to be somewhat futuristic/prototypish looking, maybe a bit sporty. You can get a feeling for whats out there by doing a google search for "electric unicycle". Integral to the design there are 3 requirements. 1.) Obviously the plastic fairing will need to have a cavity for the wheel, but in addition, it will need to subtly include a space for lipo batteries, (doesnt have to be in any particular shape however), and also must include spot for a pcb control board. Both of these items arent excessively large, the PCB is about 4X3 inches and the batteries are about 5X5X1 (but can be reconfigured). 2.) I would also like to incorporate into my design a headlight, and a tail light if possible, but most concerned with head light. Would also like to leave the option open to include small bluetooth speakers, however these would not take very much space at all. 3.) Finally, this design will need to have a retractable handle for balance when getting on/off.
