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

in 3D Modeling Design held by Banquette Tabletop
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..

Can you make this project hidden so our designs aren't copied?
Sat, 09 Jan 2016 09:57:41 +0000
Well if I had some dimensions like length or breadth to compare that could have been better.
