evanCL got their new 3d by running a design contest:
Plastic fishing bait crawfish model
Check out evanCL's 3D contest…
Apex produces soft fishing lures (worms, swim fish, etc), premium fishing rods, and CNC injection molds for those who want to pour their own baits.
What's your vision?
We want a 3D design for a crawfish which we will use to create an injection mold out of. Looking for a fairly realistic design to convince it is real when fishing. Design restrictions: The top and bottom should be identical mirrors due to how the molds will be made. The half shape of your 3d file will be cut into two metal pieces which will be pressed together to form the plastic part. Please see examples of molds attached to demonstrate how we will make the molds from the negative/opposite of your part. We would like the design to be made of mostly normal shapes (e.g. arcs, tubes, etc where possible) instead of many splines since these shapes are easier to machine. We would like the major features to be present though, such as the claws, the bumps on the claws, etc - the major defining features. Would like the initial design to be equivalent to 3" long. Design reference picture attached with the blue lines. We would like a flat 0.325" face where the straight blue lines are so a fishing weight (shown in the picture) can sit against. Color/textures do not matter. The model will only be used to create the cavity in our machining parts. If needed I have included a picture of a single bait with a good reference green and flake color. Want an STL/OBJ file we can open in Fusion360 to create our CNC CAM programs from.
We will need many more designs in the future for our line of fishing baits. Through this contest we want to find a long term design partner to handle more jobs for us.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their 3d.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
evanCL collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
