Work Starts on Laboratory Prototype
Via the good offices of Blackwalnut Studios, work has commenced on a laboratory prototype for Eli-Tables. The parts will be CNC milled from 3/4″ MDF and tested to see if the geometries perform as expected.[update] (11/7)
- Too much flex in MDF rail.
- Simple Straight leg not performing.
- LabProt Rails to grow ribs to simulate more rigid production materials.
- The pivoting head leg?
- Success! Video. Disassembly of 5 Rails, 4 Beams, and 8 Legs is under a minute and a half – on first attempt! Could shave 40 sec. off that but for the damned fins.
