3D model description


Take an octahedron, a table...Shake well and you get an octable.

The octable is a coffee table (or bedside table of your choice) whose frame is a regular octahedral skeleton.....

To build this framework you will need:

1) Buy 4 beech trunnions 1 m long and 8 mm in diameter (on sale in all "Bricomachin" stores near you!) to obtain 12 rods 33 cm long (plan a Japanese saw or a egoine, it's up to you).

2) Buy a bag of clips (PVC) 15 mm in diameter (on sale in the plumbing department of any Bricobidule that is respected...)

3) Print the six corners ("vertices" of the octahedron).

4) Print the sleeves (3 or 6 per tray) sliding on the rods.

5) You can then push the 12 rods into the six corners to build the table frame (Don't forget to first thread the sleeves onto the rods to support the tray(s)).

6) Make the upper tray to your liking (plywood / plexiglass etc... circular or hexagonal for example) and possibly a lower tray. The clips will be screwed (or glued) to the tray(s).

7) Clip the tray onto the sleeves: your octable is finished!

3D printing settings

For PLA printing in standard quality and 17% filling

Each corner requires 2h 30 of printing and each sleeve 0h 30 is about 16h 30 in total.

Each corner weighs 22gr for a cost of 0.75€, and each sleeve weighs 3gr for a cost of 0.10€. A beech trunnion costs 1.25€.

In total 0.75x6 + 3x0.10=4.80€ of PLA, plus 5€ of trunnions and a few more €uros for the clips and tray and you own a magnificent table with a unique design and an exceptional price, ladies and gentlemen only 15€!
