Stand up computer desk I designed last night with Moment of Inspiration and just cut out a few minutes ago. I just did a dry fit. I need to do a lot of clean up. The joints came out great.
I need to get cutting stuff. But life is in the way. LOL
That looks great! What bit did you use? RPM? Feed rate? Depth? Cut time?
I used a single straight flute with a replaceable knife 5/16 bit at 10K RPM, the feed rate was 30 inches/minute with 0.25" per pass. I didn’t pay attention to the cut time.
Looking, love the curves.
I love how things that come out of different CAD programs have such a different feel. I wasn’t aware of Moment of Inspiration and my first thought when I looked at this was that a CAD program like OnShape which tends towards more ridgid designs wouldn’t lend itself to something as fluid as this. I love it!
Was that 3/4-inch ply and did you cut to a depth of 3/4-inch or did you go a little deeper?
My main program is Alibre which like SolidWorks or OnShape is like you said is more rigid. Moment of Inspiration was created by Michael Gibson, the same person that created Rhino. Both programs easier to make more organic shapes but Moment of Inspiration is about 1/3 of the of price of Rhino. Rhino has more power and able to do thing that Moment of Inspiration can’t but I find Moment of Inspiration is very easy to learn. I was able to run both Moment of Inspiration and CamBam on my Linux machine which moves me one step closer to get weened off of Windows.
It was only 12mm (.472 inch) ply and I cut to 0.5 inch deep. I’m still experimenting with the Maslow and haven’t invested into good quality plywood as yet.
I love it!
I like how it seems like most of us are making something to hold our computers as one of our first projects. I did the tablet holder that is above my machine, @Onelonedork did one, I think I saw one in the background of one of @Sonny_Lacey’s pictures, and I vaguely remember a couple others too
I cheated and printed my Computer holder
Perhaps a generic shelf to a PC/Tablet is a good first project.
I like the idea of using a Pi and making it almost stand alone system. Good job…
@Bryan_Pollock, I love this desk! I have made one that was to go on French cleats on my wall, but sadly my cleats were sub-par (they were non-Maslow-milled and failed due to my poor anchoring) so I tacked the desktop to some 2x4s to stand up against the wall. I’ll try to snap a pic. I like the tabs in your design. Do they allow for disassembly or is it glued up?
It is glued up but the tabs could be redesigned to allow disassembly.
Added the accessory mouse pad.
I love how you can create something from design to reality in a few minutes
What a sleek addition!
May I use your pictures in the newsletter tomorrow?
Nice Job! It is fun to sketch, draw, cut and assemble in just an hour or so! Keep it up.
Sure, Bar anything I put here you are welcome to it.
