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?

Well if I had some dimensions like length or breadth to compare that could have been better.

Brick of Money
The goal of this project is to design a desk ornament that is a conversation piece. https://goo.gl/wc3ueb There are 3 aspects to this product: 1: The foundation: A rectangle of solid metal. Should have an expensive high end look. A bar of silver is the only thing I can think of as an example foundation. https://goo.gl/wMySnL However, I am going for more of a brushed nickel look. 2: The casing that sits on top of the medal foundation. This casing is either made of glass or plastic and will be glued to the medal foundation. 3. $500 in one dollar bills will be inside the glass casing. The attached image is not high end looking but should give you a basic idea of the kind of product we are looking to develop.
Exercise equipment design
We are looking for a pretty simple piece of exercise equipment. First, please see the attached photo. You will notice how the male is assisting the female with her sit ups by holding her feet down. We'd like to create something that you could strap on to your shoes/ankles/heels so you wouldn't need a partner to weigh you down. We don't want it to be too bulky of an item. Something that is light, can be easily carried, and has a good design.
Little commercial remodel in Puerto Penasco Mexico
I bought a little commercial building and I want to completely update this building and use it for a franchise wholesale and retail auto parts distributor. I am tearing down much of it. I want to stay with a similar look of other locations. I am expanding the interior adding more second floor and a larger showroom than exists currently. The dimensions on files are accurate and I need to stay with in them. I am looking to keep most of my inventory stored on the second floor and a slide to move parts from the second floor to the first floor easy and fast. I will move and redesign the current water closets and add a little space for a cafe (coffee maker, small refrig, microwave and toaster oven.} Total building area including first and second floor to be 300 M2 +/-. I want to keep energy efficiencies and the salt air and desert climate in mind. I want to add a small office that has the best advantage to oversee the sales floor and inventory if possible at least the check out area I will be using extensive camera system to help eliminate theft. The pictures is the actual building and the dimensions are what I have to use. I'm not set on any specific parking lot entrance or exit.. The windows I want to stay with the look that are 1 meter by 1 meter.
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.
