    Hi Everyone,

    Its time for another project.My idea/design to build a desk inside a frame with a glass top and without feet ive done 2 times.

    Version 1.

    Version 2.

    [​IMG]

    I dont want to make a third version so now its time for a new design.This time i go for an ergonomic design.So this is the kickoff for my new project The Next Level.

    [​IMG]

    The idea is to build a design desk that can be adjust in height so everyone can sit at it by simply push a button to move it up or down.My designs always change when im building so here a drawning how its gonna look.

    [​IMG]

    The desk will be watercooled and the hardware is not decided yett.More about this later.
    I already bought the lifting column and this is how it looks.

    The specs.

    • Thrust: up to 2500 N per DL2
    • Speed: up to 20 mm/s with CBD4
    • Installation dimensions can be seen in the
    ordering example
    • Stroke length 300 mm, 350 mm, 500 mm ± 4 mm
    • Colour: Natural anodized aluminium profiles and
    black painted end plates or electro-galvanised
    3 mm end plates
    • Low noise level
    • Compact and mounting friendly design
    • Built-in limit switches (not adjustable)
    • Dimension column: 147 x 194 mm
    • Dimension 8 mm end plates: 160 x 244 x 8 mm
    • Dimension 3 mm end plates: flush with the
    profiles
    • Each column is fitted with a 740 mm ± 60 mm
    straight black cable with an 8-pole AMP plug or
    100 mm mini-fit cable
    • Dynamic bending moment (at 100% stroke
    length):
    My+/Mx+ = 250 Nm and My-/Mx- = 200 Nm

    And a little movie how it works.

    I can see your future already: Adjust table, adjust chair to table, adjust monitor, adjust table again.:lol:
    It should be a cool project. Your other builds were fun.

    Thanks Linak and specially Adwin.

    This week i cut the desk and the side pieces with the lasercutter and i made a little movie.

    Below are the pictures of the pieces i cut.I used 3mm aluminium.

    Today i bend the piece with a co-worker ( the guy on the picture ).

    Then i spot welded the piece together.
