# Candy Dispenser

### (Christopher Bates. Travis Glenn)Engineering Design Process

## Define the Problem

We must build a new mini candy dispenser for a company's 50th anniversary.

**Constraints: **

1. Must be durable.

2. Must not exceed 24”x24”x24”.

3. Must have 4 or more parts.

4. Must have 2 types of candy. You decide the candy.

5. Candy cannot exceed ½” for all measurements.

## Gumball Machine This applications holds multiple pieces of candy. This machine is durable and would work well in this certain situation. | ## Jelly Bean Machine This holder can contain jelly beans and is pleasing to the eyes. The machine allows for multiple pieces of candy to be contained and allows for a quick and smooth access to the candy. | ## Circular Candy Dispenser This product holds the candy in a tight space in which is easily accessible to the consumer by a twist of a nob. |

## Three Candy Holder Jelly Bean This device holds three different candies and allows for easy access to each one. | ## The High Risk Cranker This fancy machine has a crank in which dispenses candy in an easy manner. This machine is fancy looking and has a shiny red light on the top. | ## Four Candy Holder Thingy This machine has the capacity to hold four different types of candies. But it is not as cool as the High Risk Cranker. |

## Candy Machine The completed machine assembled together. Our candy is MnMs and Skittles | ## Crank Moves the arrow in order to choose the type of candy they want, and then sucks the candy inside of them. | ## Dome This contains the two different candies in a basic spherical form. |

## Arrow Chooses what kind of candy you get. | ## Front Holds the candy that is deposited it doesn't spill out uncontrollably. | ## Top Holds the two dome pieces together. Locks the top of dome in order to come off and on to refill the candies. |

## Test and Evaluate

__Changes:__

- There is a slight possibility that we could have been more original with our design.
- The color match up could be a slight bit easier to the eyes.
- Increase the capacity of candy that the dome can have in order to get the most bang for the buck.
- Add some more cosmetics, to spice out machines up.

## Redesign

We would probably make the access to the candy easier to receive. We don't really have anything to let the candy flow out smoothly from the bottom of the dome, so we would probably make some changes around the dome in order to make sure that all of the candy needing to be dispensed will flow smoother and more sufficiently.
