Double Candy Dropper

Candy dispenser for two different types of candy

Define the problem

We have designed a candy dispenser that will not only give you candy but you will receive a little entertainment for the cost of two quarters.

Research the problem

  1. Double vending machine with stand- 2 Barrel Shaped Gumball or Candy vending machines on a chrome or cast iron stand.
  2. Double wooden candy dispenser - 2 jars holding the candy placed upside down on a oak wood base.

Develop possible solutions

  1. One solution would be the double vending machine with stand- 2 Barrel Shaped Gumball or Candy vending machines on a chrome or cast iron stand.
  2. The second solution would be the double wooden candy dispenser - 2 jars holding the candy placed upside down on a oak wood base.

Choose the best solution

I am not sure where I can create a pugh chart so I am going to pass on this part.

Create a prototype

I have my design on the inventor program at school.

Test and Evaluate

One of the main things that I would change about my design would be to change the sliding mechanism for the first part of the dispensing process. The reason being is because I feel that it would take too long to finally dispense the candy or it would be another part on the candy machine that could potentially ware out over time.

Redesign

Instead of the sliding mechanism I would change it for more of a trap door design where when it has enough candy on the door it will drop it to the pickup box for you to enjoy.

Communicate

This smore is my communication part of the design process.
