Total Winner!!!! - Best Tabletop - Super Ellipse (in the manner of Piet Hein) with Beveled Edge

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
DXF CAD Drawing of a Super Ellipse shaped tabletop with the end goal being a version of Eero Saarinen's Iconic 60' Tulip Table (picture of tulip table attached below. As far as I know, Saarinen's table was only fabricated with oval and round tops. The Super Ellipse shape works best in the setting I am designing). The tabletop will be fabricated out of a 1.25" man-made composite, marble-like, material called Silestone. (If it helps you envision the end result, the material is Silestone "Zeus White Extreme" in matte white). The dimensions of the table top should be: 56" long x 36" wide. (and will be attached to a metal pedestal base). The underside of the table top should have a 1.25" bevel from the outer edge of the table top towards the center of the table top.
Wants:
I need a drawing that the marble fabricator can use! The Super Ellipse isn't an oval or a rectangle but has curved radius' on the corners. A corner banquette (I've attached a picture of the banquette below) will provide the seating for one short end and one long end of the table. When people move into the banquette I don't want the "diner" to get caught on a corner (like you would on a rectangular shaped table) and I also don't want the "diner" seated at the corner spot of the banquette to have a corner stuck in their gut :). I've attached a copy of Piet Hein Super Ellipse Table - that is exactly the shape I am seeking. The short ends both have a flatness to them, with rounded "corners".
Don't Wants:
I do NOT want an oval.
Software:
  1. DXF CAD drawing

There is no FLAT in the super ellipse. That's why it's called a super ellipse. Good job everyone in creating something that was presented as vague by the buyer, and wouldn't even rank your submissions.

That was interesting... I didn't know if you typed in the entry number it would attaché a thumbnail view of your entry and then remove the text. As I was saying "Number 67" is the correct version, please ignore "Number 66". Thank you..

Hootsworth the Owl
We need the cutest 3D model of our 2D vector mascot named Hootsworth.
Sports bag
I have a patent design and want to make a prototype after this 3D modeling. I have the pictures of the design and need them to be made into a 3D model. The model will also need to have the inside structure, which contains some metal and plastic parts to join.
Cat Earred Headphones
We want a set of headphones designed that have cute cat ears designed on the top of the headphones. The mockup that we will include uses Beats Solo HD headphones as the template. This an easy way for us to portray the aim of the project, as we want the final outcome to look sleek and simple, but not exactly like Beats. We want a redesigned set of headphones that has fashionable cat ears on top suitable for young 20 year old females. Make 2D mock ups to give us an idea of what you have designed, then also to make up plans that can be sent to manufactures for immediate production, preferably in a cad format that can be used to 3D print the shell. Color, style, aesthetics are all up to designer, but general preferred color themes will be for white to pair with pink, and baby blue to pair with very light red.
The gentlemans shaver
We need a design for a shaver handle. The design should have an exclusive look to it, not "spacey" as many established brands are. Keywords for the design could be "gentleman, scandinavian, hipster, modern man, elegant, James Bond, simple" and such. What we need is a design made in CAD, and ultimately files ready for production, our current setup requires .dwg or .dwt files. But we would like to see an realistic 3d render of the handle. There are though some specifications for the connection between the handle and the razor blades that should be met. Since the connection is an standard set of from our razor-blade production partner. In the attached files there are an example of an handle and the lock mechanism, so the way the blades are connected and the sliding lock works should be thought into the design. It's for the scandinavian market, so the design should fit in there, and should ofcourse have a good grib, size and weight to it. We have a target weight of minimum 50-60gr to the handle.
UAV designs
I am looking for a design on an unmanned aircraft which will have a flight time of over 1hr. It must be able to carry a weight of 7kg and a camera. I know there are loads of uav's on the market so if someone can come up with the 3D plans that then can be made to a working model. I am looking along similar lines as the scan eagle etc. The best design may possibly lead to a private agreement to design a helicopter also.
