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.

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.

Looking for 3D Model
We're looking to hire a few talented 3D artists, who is willing to create beautiful & fast 3d models. Many of these 3D models we will need on-demand (in a few hours or so possibly), but most we will need you to create once a week as requested. This relationship will be on-going and very potentially long-term. The following are the type of models we required (all of them being textured): -tech gadgets -characters -video games Before we work with you, we'd need to check out how your work looks on our site's interactive format. Create your account on our site here (http://www.sketchfab.com). Please check out one of our existing modellers for Sketchfab (https://sketchfab.com/mestaty) You can also upload existing models from your portfolio to our site, which we will check out. Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you soon
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.
