I am looking for a plastic engineer and 3D designer who has a degree in engineering, and who has a good working knowledge of consumer products, plastic injection, and plastic engineering, as well as mould design.
I started a project with an engineer, and I have last minute changes I need to make promptly, but he has a several week backlog of new contracts so I need someone to pick up where he left off.
I am working to create a pair of sunglasses. These sunglasses are going to be made entirely using plastic injection, except the lenses. What I need to do it fill in one hole in the frame that we have right now, it was a concept design that we want to remove (literally, just filling in a hole) and the second part, which will take more time. The second part is, to reduce costs we are not using a seperate hinge, but rather, we want to put a hinge into the plastic injection design.
This design must be simple, just like Oakleys, to let users just pop the sides on and off, so they can be replaced if they get damaged.
Here is a video of something similar to what we want to do. This acts as a hinge and an attachment and detachment method.
We want to do the same thing with our lenses so that users can pop them out if they want to clean them or they are broken:
Right now we have a frame, and two stems designed. What we need is for you to implement the frame work allowing the lenses to sit in their, pop in and out, and then implement the changes to the frame and arms to let them fit together and easily click together and separate, also acting as the hinge, like in the video.
We will need to make the 3D model we can 3D print to test the design, and then proceed to design the production mould designs.
The program that our engineer used to make the sunglasses was ProE Creo 2.0, we have .stl files but he said he can give the ProE files to you to work on it.
If you are interested in the position please send some of your previous work, including your qualifications. I am looking for someone who can start immediately. Due to the nature of the position, and the fact that I need to have phone conversations and contracts signed with you, I am only looking for engineers based in the United States.
Thank you for taking this time.
