Contest to Improve Case Design -- w/ Existing Mold

#R&DChallenge

Dates: June 26th, 2017 - August 5th, 2017

This contest will focus on improving the existing design for the 4 Tab case. This contest specifically focuses on designs that work with the EXISTING mold.

Contest to take existing design and make slight modifications for improvements that do not require me to make a new mold.

Background

I am looking to improve my existing Tabs2Go case for Glucose Tablets. Specifically, I am looking for a solution that will make it easier to open & close, make it more obvious which side is the top of the case versus the bottom, and general product improvements. I have attached a PDF of the existing design to this post and a step file(a couple changes may have been made since this). The product is made out of polypropylene today.

Product Requirements
#holds 4 glucose tablets. Glucose Tab dimensions are roughly 1 inch in diameter and 1/3 inch in height.
#looking for someone to take existing mold and improve it. The final deliverable must be something which will enable my current mold and product to be slightly modified and I do not have to spend thousands of dollars on a new mold.

To Participate

  • Submit a 3D Cad Design deliverable
  • Describe how it improves on existing design

That’s it! Excited to see what the community generates. :)

Those are the dimensions of the casing, which you need to use while redesigning
and you also need to make sure ,you dont change it so much that ,Scott Bissinger has to change the mold

i finished the 3d model … it looks like that

i still can customize it as you want

in my cad … i tried to be very careful … to make a bit of spacing between the tabs … so u can put and grab them easily
also i made the make the model as much smooth as possible. so u can print it very easily
if u still have any ideas , i would be happy to hear them.

and wait a short video i am rendering it right now. won’t take so long

i will upload the 3d model very soon
if u have any suggestion , just tell me … so u can get the 3d cad with no issues
