I am a novice inventor looking for an experienced drafter/engineer to provide detailed renderings of a consumer product to be used for patent applications, prototyping and manufacturing. An engineer with experience in plastics (injection molding) and 3D (FDM) is a plus. Experienced engineers available for consult bringing products to market greatly encouraged to apply. My product is very simple. I have redesigned a type o comb for the hair. I came up with a few enhanced features for an existing comb-style that expand its traditional uses and functions. I have tried, quite poorly, to produce on paper what is in my head. However, I know in order to realize the product I will need help and quite a few more steps. I am also interested in a bit of direction. So I have drawings but I have also "assembled" a sort of prototype out of pieces that function as I need from other products and machines. I want to keep the product low-cost so I want to keep it plastic. My goal, at this po...

We have a prototype (a physical product done) of frame made out of aluminum square tubing and L-shapes, and screws. Relatively simple one, almost resembling the legs and the connecting bars for a small coffee table (that is not the product, just to give impression of the complexity). Again, just to give you an impression of the complexity: we drew a sketch, did some calculations and measurements, bought some 3/4" square tubing, cut it with manual hacksaw, drilled wholes with a manual drill, assembled it with metal sheet screws. We want to sell this product. So we need someone to help us order this from a metalworking shop or small factory. So we need drawings, and some knowledge (detailed scripted procedure on getting materials, ordering from machine working shop the cutting and the drilling, getting maybe a few shops to bid etc.) This is pretty much a know-how project more than anything else. A mechanical engineer especially with experience in turning an idea / sketch / pro...
