PING & PONG tables

3D model description

PING & PONG tables

Here is my proposal for the superb challenge offered by CULTS 3D on the theme of 3D furniture printing. #DAGOCULTS

Do not hesitate to vote for me to help me win the trophy. Just click on "I LOVE" at the top right of the presentation photo of my project (no account of any kind !!!) These challenges stimulate my creativity and I want to develop 3D printing and to propose you new projects by winning one of the two beautiful printers DAGOMA in play.

I describe below my approach of design to propose to you this unique model, special creation for the event.
3D printing offers many advantages, such as easy customization of its designs (choice of colors and materials for printed parts), sharing, making available the digital data necessary for their manufacture by others, and also the ability to modulate their size simply for serial effects or nesting elements.

I like to make many objects for a very long time and practiced woodwork since my beginnings. 3D printing was added two years ago to my palette of tools and is day after day a valuable ally; in this same spirit "FabLab and Makers" I regularly use the laser cutter.
The theme of the coffee tables quickly became the most exposed object when guests are welcomed, and become the media for the rapid diffusion of new technologies.

The mechanical resistance of the parts manufactured by the FDM printers (especially on the Z-axis, which offers a small fragility on all the machines) has guided my design research, wishing to offer the subscribers of the CULTS 3D platform a perfectly functional model . The design of the parts is such that the aluminum tubes reinforce the Z-axis, making them very solid and suitable for the use of this technology for furniture.

I wanted to make in DIY these low table legs whose design is trendy because I did not find them already realized or at very high prices. The choice of standard aluminum tubes (diameters 10 mm -> PING, 8 mm -> PONG) arranged in this way (triangulation) allows good mechanical strength. They are good value for money and available in several finishes (raw, anodized in several colors). It is possible to choose beech trunnions, steel tubes or threaded rods for an industrial design look. I put the .stl files available for a 12 mm diameter, for other characteristics of tubes, it is enough to do a scaling either in meshlab or meshmixer for example (I use for my part netfabb), or in your favorite slicer.
The plots of the templates that helped me to cut the trays (format .dxf or .pdf) as well as a tutorial to obtain perfect shapes using a router and a copier are in. zip files to download. Contact me via the CULTS 3D platform if you want more information.

Finally the top tray can be of the material and shape you want. Here, I chose printed parts in gray elephant, natural anodized aluminum tubes and Hevea trays (thickness 33 mm for the top plate and 18 mm for the other).

Supplies needed to complete the project (for both tables):
- 2 trays of your choice (For example, an ellipse of 820 x 520 mm in 33 mm and an ellipse of 540 x 420 mm in 18 mm / glued laminated hevea).
- 8 tubes of 432.5 mm in diameter 10 mm. For my part, I cut them with a mini cup rotary plumbing tube, it works very well: very precise cut, no fatigue nor noise, aluminum chips / internet link:

  • 4 tubes of 430,5mm in diameter 10mm.
  • 3 or 4 bases 10mm and 3 or 4 feet 10 mm printed in PLA for example color to your convenience. That is to say 75 m of filament in 1.75 mm.
  • 16 screws 30mm long, 3.5mm diameter.
  • 8 tubes of 335 mm in diameter 8 mm.
  • 4 tubes of 330 mm in diameter 8 mm.
  • 3 or 4 bases 8 mm and 3 or 4 feet 8mm printed in PLA for example color to your convenience. That is 45 m of filament in 1.75 mm.
  • 16 screws 18 mm long, 3.5 mm diameter.
  • Two-component glue, unless the holes of the printed parts are well adjusted, which should be the case if the printing parameters below are respected.

DIY, personalize, and have fun ;-)

3D printing settings

PRINTING PARAMETERS:
(to be respected for best results)
Nozzle diameter: 0.35 mm or 0.4 mm (This seems to me suitable for most FDM machines currently on the market as well as kits including DAGOMA) .
Layer height: 0.2 mm.
Wall Thickness: 1.1 mm or 1.2 mm (depending on the diameter of the nozzle, ideally being a wall of 3 passes of the print head for good resistance). The design of the parts has been optimized for these plastic thicknesses. The resistance of the printed parts seemed to me fundamental for this application to the furniture.
Filling rate: 25%
Top and Bottom Thickness: 0.6 mm or 0.8 mm for greater strength.
Brim: YES
Support: NO

I can not use ABS to the FabLab I frequent, I could not test it.
Recommended PLA filament, hangs on a tray covered with BuildTak (which is my case) or heated tray, recommended.

PRINTING TIME:
5 hours printing for a base and a foot end for 10 mm rod. A total of 20 hours for PLA parts for a 46 cm high coffee table (pieces for 10 mm aluminum tube).
3 hours and 30 minutes of printing for one base and one end of stand for 8mm rod. A total of 14 hours for PLA parts for a 36 cm high coffee table (pieces for 8 mm aluminum tube).

Height of layer: 0.2 mm.
Wall Thickness: 1.1 mm or 1.2 mm (depending on the diameter of the nozzle, ideally being a wall of 3 passes of the print head for good resistance). The design of the parts has been optimized for these plastic thicknesses. The resistance of the Apprentice to the furniture.
Filling level: 25%
Top and Bottom Thickness: 0.6 mm or 0.8 mm for extra strength.
Brim: YES
Support: NO

I can not use ABS to the FabLab I frequent, I could not test it.
Recommended PLA filament, hangs on a tray covered with BuildTak (which is my case) or heated tray, recommended.

INDICATIVE TIME OF PRINTING:
5 hours A total of 20 hours for PLA parts for a 46 cm high coffee table (pieces for 10 mm aluminum tube).
3 hours and 30 minutes of printing for one base and one end of foot for 8mm rod. A total of 14 hours for PLA parts for a 36 cm high coffee table (pieces for 8 mm aluminum tube).
