I'm reintroducing a line of fishing lures my father originally patented back in 1972, but with some changes of my own and made with modern technologies available today. I need someone to make the 3D drawings so I can print 3d Prototypes for testing, and then eventually send to the factory to make the injection molds. They require SolidWorks files in .spl, .spp, .slbprt, or .igs.
The lure design will be done in two mirrored halves then assembled at the factory by placing hardware inside and then glued or ultrasonic welded. The lure cannot leak.
I can supply basic drawings, photographs of similar products, detailed instructions of the design, photos and specifications including all measurements of hardware supplied by the factory (weights, hook eyes, fish eyes) as well as photos of sample clear plastic blanks provided by the factory so you can see how the lures would fit together.
The designer must agree that this is a work for hire agreement and that the intellectual property will pass to me. This product was previously patented and I plan to apply for a new patent based on my improvements to the new design. The design cannot be used in a portfolio or displayed on the internet at any time.
I would prefer a designer who some experience actually fishing with crank baits.
I would prefer to keep the project a flat rate project as my budget is very tight. If things go well, I have a whole bunch of other lure designs in a variety of sizes and styles I'd like to get done, so this could lead to a lot more work and even a full time position.
I will supply photos privately via odesk on request but I don't want to post them publicly. Thanks.
