Double-sided Clamp Redesign

Contest Closed
Description:
Double Sided Aluminum Clamp.
Need redesign of part to make it easier to manufacture on CNC mill. Currently, the easiest method is waterjetting the clamping profile before finishing on the CNC mill. We would like to make the manufacturing easier and all in one MILL.
Wants:
Easier to machine and still looks aesthetically pleasing, and retains full functionality.
Don't Wants:
A block with holes.
Software:
  1. SolidWorks (1)

#13 Simply Efficient by gregwsheldon
The idea here is the one piece clamp would simply bind on the round bar by tightening M8 bolt (not in drawing or picture), ultimately stopping movement. Also it implements simple profile design and minimal tooling and axis change over on machining.

#5 Double clamp by Ankit Bharangar
A Curved edge cut is introduced on both sides to increase the strength and reduce weight.
The edges are chamfered in order to improve insertion of object and give premium and elegant look to the clamp

Could you please tell me why you cant manufacture this design in CNC mill completely? What is the diameter of the smallest tool you can use in your CNC mill machine ?
Thu, 29 Jan 2015 01:47:10 +0000
What level of manufacturing is available? Three axis manual -- CNC jobcenter? What kind of clamping force? What alloy of AL?

Hello Blake,

Do we copy exact positions and dimensions of holes?

BlakeHR,
I know you specified Solidworks, but any reason I couldn't do the work in AutoCAD 2014 3D?
Thanks, Aaron

Mechanical Engineer to develop light guides or light pipes used with LEDs
Looking for an engineer that has experience with light guides or light pipes used with LEDs, and that can design a few simple light guides for an electronic device. 3 LEDs - red, green, blue will feed the light pipe. the other end of the light pipe will be visible to the user thorugh a cutout in the enclosure. the user will see this end of the light pipe, which is 2 strips each at .2 wide x 2" long. there may be some curvature to these 2" long strips (maybe a radius of 2.5"). when the red LED is on the strips will light up red. same for green, etc. need to make sure the lighting is continuous (not brighter at one end than the other). Proven experience with LIght pipes is required. $100 for initial sketch and background proving that this design will work. Further work would then be given to winner to develop the concept into a injection molded part. Good Luck and I look forward to working with you.
Outdoor TV Enclosure
Design an outdoor TV Enclosure for 32" flat screen TV to be used outdoor such as backyard, pool, or cafeteria. - Inside the enclosure will hold flat screen TV with dimension of 30" x 18" x 2" (W x H x D). Dept can be extended if needed. - TV must be safely secure inside the enclosure when not attach to the VESA Wall mount - Must be able to mount with VESA Wall mount standard of 200mm x 200mm - Water resistant but does not need to be completely waterproofed - Have a cooling system, either ventilation for airflow (Fans) or cool down liquid (Freon) - A sound bar will be located in the bottom of the enclosure - Would be nice if the enclosure has feet that can be pushed in or pulled out when place on the ground to keep it balance.

A complex helix for visualising a pedagogic hypothesis
The spiral of learning (Kolb & Kolb) is a simple helix visualising the learner's progress. I need to visualise a more complex spiral. Turns on this helix are circular. Each turn represents an interaction between teacher and learner. This helix contains 1 grand turn. A grand turn contains at least 3 smaller turns. This creates a turn complex. Each turn achieves a small or large rise on the z axis depending on the diameter of the turns on the x and y axes. In elevation view the turn complex should have a stepped appearance due to the presence of the smaller turns, with the lowest steps at left and the highest at right. The idea to be communicated is that the larger turns contain at least 3-5 smaller turns. Each turn achieves a small increase in z-height as the learner exits the turn, like freeway traffic using a cloverleaf junction. Multiple interactive turns aggregate to a large gain in z-height. In the attached illustration, the largest loop should be understood as not a part of the visualisation. I would like to see two variations of the design: (1) smaller turns ranged on outside of grand turn diameter (2) smaller turns ranged on inside of grand turn diameter.
