We are looking for a product designer / engineer to design a pole mount oscillating fan. The design will need to be 3D modeled and engineered to work flawlessly. We want to be able to hand the design to a supplier in China and have them be able to produce it. This means as much as the design is pretty it will also have to have the functional technical specs so it can be produced. This needs to be a turnkey design ready for manufacturing. You probably won't need to design a "new" fan and blade / housing, we can use an existing fan and create the bottom half custom mount.
The purpose of this fan is go inside a hydroponics growing tent. Currently there is not many of these products on the market. We have ideas about how we would like the mount it to the pole but are open to ideas. The poles range in diameter from 14-30mm. (It may require an insert to make sure it can attach to the smaller poles, but this is up for discussion and what you think will work best.)
Attached are some example of how we could attach it to the side of the pole and a render of another company that offers something similar, but we don't like there design, its not strong enough. We want it to be extremely easy to attach and remove and move up and down the pole.
The fan sizes we will use are 8in, 10in, 12in.
Once we have the basic design down to attach to the fan, I will find the supplier that is able to make it and then get the technical drawings of their fan so we can make sure it will attach and mate up perfectly to it. Let me know if you have questions about this.
Please let me know if you have questions. Please keep in mind, our pictures are only for you to have an idea of the project and direction, if you have a better idea we would prefer to discuss that. You're the designer here, we expect you to have better ideas than us!
