Azuro1125: Neat idea... but the solution had a few issues. Can't be molded (severe undercuts), and you can't put your feet under the desk (ignoring human factors. Most people put their feet under the desk quite far. Does not look stackable, so shipping would be expensive.


Streamliner: Solid entry. Only change I'd make is that the 3d renderings do NOT have perspective turned on. Come on man, perspective is what separates us from them (engineers)! :)


Gigawatt: Not design. At all. And it's on the market already, apparently? Just... no.


Gerivta: Spell check. Grammar. Needs more development in general in terms of human factors, production, shipping, and mechanical systems.


JONGHDESIGN: Nice work, solid sketching/modeling skills, but the concept needs more development. Right away, collected rainwater is not sanitary; go look inside a rain barrel and all the nasty bacteria that grows in it. Hence why it's only used for watering plants. Again, fantastic sketches/modeling/rendering, but the idea needed a bit more revisions.


DanHibbert: What?


SamBan: For every problem there is an overly complicated solution. This is a perfect example. The world doesn't need microchips and electronics in everything; I've seen small clay worms that cost less than $3 that accomplish the exact same thing. You water the plants, the worms turn dark red. When the soil is dry, the clay dries to a chalky white.




I give my vote to Streamliner. Great sketches, great development, I can see the way you tackled different problems, just totally rock solid all around! JUST REMEMBER TO TURN ON PERSPECTIVE! :)

My favourite entries have to be streamliners shower concept and JONGHDESIGN's Meet & Greet. I loved the simplicity of the shower concept idea and the hands on modelling and development work which the other entries generally lacked.


The Meet & Greet is a fantastic concept and has been well presented with sketches and renderings. There is so much scope for further concept development.


Some of you may have noticed that my entry has been listed despite not being completed, please vote for one of the other participants who have put together a complete entry.

You caught me on the draft angle. I noticed it when I did my final render. That was supposed to extend all the way around the skirt of the desk. The undercuts themselves should not have been too big of a problem with roto molding, as long as the parting line ran on the center of the desk. I was planning on creating a place in the footrest portion to be punched out after delivery, I dont know why I didn't. Thanks for the honest critiques.

@Cash68 Thanks for your comment. The concept still has a lot of details to be engineered and exploited. Will do soon!

@Danhibbert Thanks for your comment!

I was very impressed with Streamliners design for the shower and think it answered the brief brilliantly. Streamliner hasn't only thought about the design, but has thought about the materials and the process needed to make the product. It's a real solution to a real problem.


I know it's been designed for third world countries but I think it would be great if it could be folded away and easily transportable for festival goers and campers alike. Possible place in the market for this product(?) great job!

Congratulations to Streamliner with his affordable shower design for the third world!


The solidThinking 8.5 Inspired commercial license will ship to Streamliner very soon.


Unfortunately the prize for the member with the most reputation points is not going anywhere, as there is no specific member who does have the most points. I will reserve this prize for the next challenge, and then I hope that member will be more encouraged to offer feedback and give reputation points to the ones who offered valuable feedback.


Anyways, thanks to all the members who have voted.

We hope to see you in a next design challenge.
