Andres Roppa

I have a device that I need to make a prototype of so I can test it. Using any cad software
is far beyond my capabilities. I have drawings with exact dimensions that I can provide. for three of the five components and approximate dimensions for the other two parts. The item I am working on is about the size of a plastic pill bottle. I won't know the exact dimensions for the final model until I have the first model and try to fit the mechanical components into it. My device has five separate parts. The main component is 29mm wide, inside diameter with wall thickness of 1.5mm. It has threads at the top, height is 60 mm. The other components are approximately the size of a pill bottle cap. The device is (very similar to a flashlight ) a small, motion activated, lighted, mini buoy. The device is to be made of plastic, preferably PVC but that is not an absolute. I can E-mail my drawings. Hope you can take what I have drawn and help me with making my first parts and then take it to final design.

Thanks

I tried to contact Andres Roppa through " contact him now". My message didn't go through. I will try this format.

I hope you can take what I have drawn and help with making my first parts, take it to final design and then to mas production.
