Industrial design and 3D concept rendering of product idea. Heavy modification to existing sample below:
The product is a lie flat commercial sauna for a single person. The product will be made entirely out of wood. Functionality of the unit is similar to a tanning bed, where the user will lie down and close the lid. The product will turn on and provide slow heat to the customer. There will be NO tanning lights of any kind. Instead, heat will be generated from both the base and the top lid of the product, with the heat transferred through holes in the lid and base.
The customer will be lying on a bench similar to the following benches on the left. The top of the unit will also have heat emanating from it onto the top of the user's body - the inside of the lid will have holes to allow heat to get to the user:
The dimensions of the bench (the area of wood where the user lies down, and where the machine will emit heat, should be 95CM x 2.2 meters.
The top lid must be shaped to accommodate the user. The crude concept drawings makes it look like the top is flat and only 15CM deep - that dimension is a minimum width. See the following pictures for ideas of the outside shape of the lid.
The wood barrel is the closest to the general shape. The entire lid should be 15 CM thick - there will be components which need to be installed within the lid of the unit. The lid should cover the ends (head and feet). Remember, there should be a 5CM gap all the way around, when the unit is being used.
Shape of lid from interior point of view:
For the souls of the feet, include additional holes for heat for the souls of the feet - see design here. https://www.dropbox.com/s/vxk7pvq4w…d.jpg?dl=0
The same idea can be used for the head - holes facing the top of the head. In the hand drawing, the unit doesn't have an enclosed area for the head - direct heat for the head and feet should be included in the design. The foot and head heaters should be permanently attached to the base, and not the lid.
The exterior of the lid should be covered completely with wood, and have a finishing of wood similar to the exterior of this wooden home. THE ENTIRE EXTERIOR OF THE UNIT SHOULD BE A SMOOTH SURFACE OF WOOD:
General dimensions are provided, though are only guidelines. Can alter dimensions to fit and suit your design. The "Closed" image indicates a length of 2.4 meters. The bench is 2.2 meters, therefore the width between the top of the bench and the end of the unit is 10CM.
There are four (4) design components excluded from the design. These new components must be included in your new designs. You have complete freedom to design what is best here.
1) Control Panel to control the unit (perhaps put on lid or beside the hip area of the lower section. For now, use an Iphone Sized stainless steel with 6 buttons an a knob. Add a logo on the panel for ABC Designs, in royal blue.
2) Legs - the unit will be elevated off the floor, with approximately 50 CM of clearance between the floor and the bench (where the user lies)
3) Hinge - the top closes and matches the bottom to enclose the user. How does the hinge work?
4) The user will be enclosed in the unit, but it doesn't need to be sealed. Design so there's a gap of at least 5CM between the top and the bottom - while closed, the gap should be the same all the way around, including around the head the feet. There will be no gap on the side where the top lid connects to the base of the unit (the hinge side).
The bottom of the unit should be shaped similar to a rectangular box. The edge should be rounded (see "SaunaBench"), but the rest should be a rectangular - solid in design and function. When you look at it, it should look sturdy and solid.
Outputs - best practices 3D rendering of:
1) Product closed from multiple angles, illustrating entire product - potentially in a sample room with furniture/items to provide scale.
2) Product open with clear view of bench (with holes and wooden headrest) and top lid (with holes).
3) Multiple pictures of product open, with particular attention to design elements - bubbles with zoom of specific design elements, such as: i) additional holes for direct heat to feet, back, stomach, ii) control panel close up.
