A Little Project I Have Planned

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
Hey guys just thought I would share some early pre- production screens of a future project I'm currently sizing up smile.gif

First: A quick render using Bryce 6.1


Second: A Design Screen from Pro Desktop 8
LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

The frame will most likely be made from inch box steel and the insert from 1mm thick aluminium, took a little inspiration from the amazing L3P D3SK.

Let me know what you think and feel free to suggest any improvements.

Cheers smile.gif

I'd definitely check your specs and load tolerances on that frame. It looks like it could bend or even collapse if too much weight is applied to the front of the desktop.

Other than that, good on ya!

Thanks, will do but ill have to calculate the weight of all the components and apply them.

It's not just the component weight you have to worry about. You have to consider everything from setting a glass down on the top to having someone set a box on it, to someone sitting on it period.

Frankly, I'd take no chances and use a box frame with cross members in an X pattern, or a T-Frame base with supports, like this:



Please note that this is not to scale.

Anyway, that is what I would do, but ultimately, this is your project, and I wouldn't want to dictate how you do it.

I would move the supports closer to the center of the main point and make it look more like an X to distribute the weight more evenly. If you are using the steel I think you are then you probably won't have any problems but as of right now I just see the pressure pushing down on the main strut you have from bottom rear to top front.

^This.

Also, perhaps a bracing support or two along the bottom span (going from the span to the bottom of the desk would help to alleviate any stress if the desk is shimmied side to side. Either that, or some corner bracings.

Thanks guys your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Ill take your advice and move the support struts a bit closer to the centre of the main load bearing beam.

Cheers:)

Still need to think about the kit I'm putting in it ill post a list up over the next few days, see what you guys think.
