The project is a 6.4m X 2.4m boardroom table that is being constructed using a torsion box internal structure.
The table surface disassembles into 4 sections. The table top profile and plan views have been derived from arcs to suit the designs aesthetic requirements. My job was to construct a CAD Model from the design specifications and cut the internal ribs for the elliptical structure. The top and bottom surfaces will be made from veneered plywood. A strong light and stiff structure can be made by using these contemporary techniques.
My work flow for this job was as follows:
1.Construct a CAD drawing and create a surface model of the table
2. Offset the surface to allow for the skin surface thickness
4. Cut the ribs using the cross-section curves
Ribs for the table join lines
