I could be interested.
What would be really ***nice*** is if you post what you are doing and perhaps how you are doing it.
I picked up Alibre Design a couple of years ago thinking I might get round to do some mech - but my brain wasn't able to make it work thoughI didn't try very hard
Solid products - need a design enclosure that works for the application. Easy to say, but takes a lot of figuring out the application. The experts politely call it iterative design.
Typically a product design starts with the enclosure and the electronics fit to that design - as designers think more of the user and what they want from it, the Smart Designer will start with the enclosure. There is a talk this weekhttp://www.meetup.com/The-San-Francisco-Internet-of-Things-Meetup/events/118177032/
- I'm not affiliated, but plan on going to the talk)
A really nice concept is being released by www.electricImp.com
- a "SD Card" that has WiFi on it - the SD card format is low cost- and a fantastic idea to be able to be able to let it be retrofitted layer. The design is simple and very sweet - (disclosure - I hadn't hear of two weeks ago)
So yup, be great to hear about what works for the current designs - maybe what the challenges are - and who knows might feedback into the next generation of XXX - on how to make it work as an application.
These boards are coming out with some simple enclosures - http://rayshobby.net/
Allwinner ARM A8 with 1Gram + Ehternet +USB Host+HDMIhttp://www.alwaysinnovating.com/products/hdmidongle.htm
- I think this is Open Source Android HDMI dongle, but maybe not - nice simple concept.
These don't appear to have enclosures yet - roll your own-http://pinocc.io/
- Allwinner ARM A8 with 1Gram +Ethernet+USB HOST+HDMI
so be fantastic to hear what you're process is, what the difficulties are and results pictures etc
