Contest Brief

I am looking to create a simple press-machine used to cut various types of leather applications. The press you see in the pics, I made myself. I am looking to create a more professional version of this press and 3D-Print the 1st prototype and and then I will Mill it on a CNC and I require 100% fully editable .STEP files. Any suggestions how to modify and improve my existing design?

Tools I have available to work with:

1. Metal Lathe
2. Drilling/Milling Machine
3. Metal Bandsaw
4. FDM 3D Printer: https://store.makerbot.com/3d-printers/method-x/carbon-fiber-kit
5. SLA 3D Printer
6. KeyShot 10
7. SolidWorks (use .STEP Files)

The goal is to update this press and create 4 different types of interchangeable base-plates (the base-plate is the work table, used for different applications) for the press. I will work with you on a 1-2-1 basis after you upload your 1st rough draft of your initial press design. Upload your 1st 3D rendering and then I will comment on your direction and we will work together on dimensions and tweaks.
