Custom Case

in 3D Printing Design held by Dwizzle2k9
Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
I currently have absolutely no images, or sketches. I do have measurements for what i'm looking to get the hardware designed for. This is a computer with a different shape. What you will have to keep in mind, the hardware is up gradable, so what you will have to make sure is all of the hardware is easy to access the hardware, take it out, and add new hardware, and also easy to open when needed. The hardware need to be designed within a 15L x 10W x 3H hexagon. The 3 main things to keep in mind is the size of the hexagon shaped pc, easy to open the pc, and easy to take the hardware out and replace it when needed. The hardware for the PC will be Intel, and AMD CPU and GPU, also make sure there's enough room for the graphics card, some are big. Oh I almost forgot please make sure there's enough storage room. There will be a limited amount of memory onboard, so there has to be enough room for extra storage. Also there will be no disk drive onboard, so that will eliminate some unwanted space.
Colors are up to you. Remember the sizes. Also keep in mind there will be no power button. Only touch. This is more of a console look.
Ask for Sample:
Finish one as a sample, then the best designer will complete the project.
  1. 3D Printing
  2. Maxxon Cinema 4D
Additional Information
Also the button on the case has to light up when it's turned on.
Also I would like for you to add a logo. Here's the link to the image.

#12 AEON HEX - Custom Case Concept Design by EJB CAD SOLUTIONS
A Console style and feel to a computer case. Dimensions are 15L X 15W X 3H. Compact design, however this case is designed for custom internal components meaning that the internal space inside can be utilized and orientated to suit the chosen components. Has enough space to fit along the width a GTX Titan GPU. Suggested that the PSU is housed externally to reduce heat, create airflow and to reduce noise. Incorporates Aeon logo as requested and also utilizes a touch start button.
A modern look from the hexagonal shape hence the title Aeon Hex, designed with Gamer's in mind.
Design dimensions could change depending on components that would eventually be used.

#17 Computer case by Taavi
This computer case is easy to open, just unlock and lift the top case from the bottom. All the CPU components will stay in the bottom of the case. This makes CPU easy to customize.
Name on the top case will light up if letter "o" from the name will be touched and computer starts-up.
If my design wins, then i will adjust everything according to your wishes and finish this product to fully working and manufacturable product.

I understand i'm little bit late for the dinner, but dimensions are in inches, right?

Hexagon's is the theme of the interface. I'm not stuck on a hexagon alone. If you have other shapes that's fine also.
Thu, 12 Feb 2015 03:24:48 +0000
Excuse me, but why do you insist on hexagon , i think there are much more fascinating designs than the hexagon shape

Rohith Kalyanaraman- I would need the whole cpu, no monitor.

DesignerRavi- I would ultimately need a full manufacturing model. My company is looking for new designs from what we have. Our old designs aren't up to par with most hardware out there. Also Plastic design is more of what i'm looking for.

Mr.Manuel Rosso

Has a good queries too.

keeping heat dissipation in mind is also a very good design aspect for cpu to run in long hours.
Tue, 10 Feb 2015 05:23:01 +0000
plastic design or sheet metal.
in plastic i can give more designs than in sheet metal.
please update to know.

Thank you.

i have idea and, i will try doing and sending it before the given date.
but my questions are.
1. Do company need new design.
2. Concept design is fine or the fully manufacturing model needed?
3. I will design in solid works so can you tell me in which format i need to send it.

# i can send the files and power point presentation.

The size of the motherboard depends on the final dimensions of the case. The motherboard will be custom.
Everything will be custom. The only thing that isn't is the hardware choice. Graphics can fit all GTX graphics cards. from a 550 to a titan, and most AMD graphics.
There will be no touch screen on the case. The only thing that's touch is the power button. It has to have a light. Heres a link to the logo. I would like this to be on the case also:
Fri, 06 Feb 2015 10:42:27 +0000
Just for clarification, please indicate:
a - the type (form factor) and size of motherboard.
b - the type and size of power supply
c- fan/fanless
d: type and size of Graphic card
e- dimensions and form of the touchscreen
f- connectors required: USB, HDMI, power, etc.
Is it for making one of, or to make more units?

Design an Extraordinary Cabinet Knob or Pull
I own, a retail cabinet hardware site. I want to manufacture a line of unique, 3D printed cabinet hardware. This contest is for the design for one cabinet knob or pull. However, should I find a designer whose work I like, there could be far more work following. The final knobs will be produced in metal. They will need to be strong enough for daily use, stunning to look at, and capable of being screwed into a cabinet, which means they should have a threaded screw hole capable of receiving an 8-32 screw. The knob diameter can be anywhere between 1 1/4 inches and 1 1/2 inches. Also, the final piece needs to be capable of being submitted directly to Shapeways, and conform to all of their criteria for strength, wall thickness, etc. I'm not a techie, so if I have to modify anything to upload it, the knob is never going to get made.
