Design injection-molded consumer electronic enclosure

Note: this project is for concept and strategy phase only - that's why I'm budgeting small - no finished design necessary; just a concept sketch and answers to high-level questions on design and cost trade-offs; followup work on full production-ready design will be determined after finishing concept and strategy phase. Plan 1 hour phone discussions. English required. Only industrial designers who have experience with insert injection molded design should bid.


Temperature controller for charcoal/wood grills/smokers

Modest volume, low cost consumer product budget

See [url removed, login to view] for current system being upgraded

Cost reduction is one goal

(Current enclosure is a 3-piece off-the-shelf component with custom engraving and cutouts by CNC.)

Product improvement is another goal, especially better weather resistance

Must use SolidWorks 2013 in English

Features for consideration

Splash resistant

Mounting insert feature wall mounting or stand mounting

3 buttons

Menu, down (-), up (+)

Silicone keypad or other water resistant alternative

4 jacks – located on front/bottom such that controller can sit on table or hang/mount vertically near smoker

DC in, [url removed, login to view] ID barrel female

Fan output, [url removed, login to view] ID barrel dc jack

2 temperature probes, [url removed, login to view] mono headphone jack

Inserted clear lens for 2 line x 16 char LCD – 20x68mm aperture

Modern professional styling

Marking for buttons and jacks

Marking for branding

Product ID label

Allow 6-7 sq inches on PCB for circuit/non-mating parts

Help select parts mating with enclosure:

4 jacks, LCD, buttons

Character LCD 2 lines x 16 character, parallel interface

Prefer tactile buttons

2-piece, top and bottom

Boss and pin design to hold PCB without screws

4 threading screws to fasten top and bottom

Jacks recessed for splash resistance

Input files available

3D models of the jacks are available from the manufacturers

I found an LCD model that looks like the one we selected; dimensions just need to be verified and maybe modified.
