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.

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

Liver Shell
Design should be of a liver shell. It should be an anatomically accurate model that can be printed if needed to. The inside should be hallow and the liver should include a hole on top where the hyper-vein would normally be and a hole on bottom where the vein would leave. The liver shell should be a 2 piece design that can be clicked/ screwed together to symmetrically put together the 2 halves. http://www.exchange3d.com/3D-Model-of-Liver-Anatomy/prod_28235.html#preview A more simplified version of this will be perfect.
Smart Wristband
I'm a tech&des student in the UK. I've been able to get by without being great at CAD but this year is unavoidable. My project is a wristband designed for old people that can track where they are and their heart rate. This project will be straight forward for anyone familiar with solid works 2013, neeed it by the next 2 days, (due on wed)
SolidWorks Simple Box with 2 Cords - Freelance 3D Designer Contest
Keep the dimensions of the box exactly as they are in the 2D version (they are in imperial but can be changed to metric in the solidworks file) I'm looking for a clean 3D Solidworks file of the exterior with the 2 cords that can pull out almost to look like an assembly drawing in Solidworks. I'm not looking to get detailed on what the product is or how it will work, but the top port is a Micro USB, and the bottom port is a Lightning USB. The notches on both are for fingernails and a cord will pull out. There is a very small power button on the bottom and 4 LED lights on the back side that I will update soon. I'm looking for conceptual nice looking design to use for sale of the product.
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.
J-shape
3D modeling of a J-shaped massage tool, much like a Theracane only smaller in dimensions. The tool should be modeled as close as possible to the attached images. The straight portion of the J-shape is approximately 10 inches long and 3/8in in diameter. The hook portion of the tool should form an approximately 180 degree arc and terminate in spherical end of 9/16in diameter. The handle, at the top of the J-shape, should be approximately 3/4in in diameter. The attached jpg images are of the actual tool that I would like modeled and should give you a good idea of it's dimensions. The png file should also provide a good reference. Thanks.
