I originally uploaded this to Thingiverse, but as their website has been having significant stability and speed issues, I am uploading it here as well.
This is a hanging table top where tension forces are used to keep the table upright and balanced instead of compression forces on standard legs. The end result is an object that seems to defy gravity and physics.
This was inspired by a video I saw online of someone doing a similar thing with yellow wire/pipe cleaners. I liked the idea and thought I'd make it a tad more classy and stylized. The end result is something strong enough to hold a light object or cactus planter without any problems.
Edit - One of my friends told me this type of object was called a "tensegrity". After doing a bit of research, it turns out there is a whole class of objects that use this principle. Very interesting stuff!
Also, be sure to share your makes! This was a lot of fun to make and I'd love to see how yours turn out :)
