SIDE TABLE DESIGN

AXON – PRESS FIT “DOG BONE” DETAIL

MILL PATHS

PRESS FIT TOLERANCE TEST

Parts milled on Techno CNC machine

Material thickness set at .46 with various offsets ranging from .01″ to .05″

Best : Far left test – Material thickness at .46″ with no offset of interlocking parts. Joints are extremely tight, but can be assembled manually.

FINAL MILL

First Pass – Engraving lines . Second Pass – Inside profile lines to finish dog bone connections

Finish Profiles

Finished Parts

ASSEMBLY

Joints fit very tightly, mild sanding was required in all dog bone connections except uppermost plane which was placed with a rubber mallet.

4.196 Special Problems in Architectural Design Complete Fabrications Nick Gelpi Mon-Fri, Jan 5-7, 10-11, 13-14, 18, 20-21, 24-25, 27-28, 01-04:00pm, 3-402/7-432studio, 1st mtg Wed 1/5 Pre-register on WebSIS and attend first class. No listeners Prereq: Permission of instructor ; Yr-1 MArch students who have completed 4.123 only Level: H 9 units Standard A - F Grading Can be repeated for credit Lab Fee: 150 A comprehensive introduction to methods of “making” explored through a wide range of brief but focused exercises. Skills = developing complex geometries from flat components; fine-tuning press fit construction, molding and casting, and making repeatable molds for customization. A two-part workshop, the first half will contextualize contemporary tools and techniques within the trajectories of historical case studies of building, combined with hands on familiarization of tools. The second half will implement the tools of our workshop in the context of Design. Working on group design build process for three MIT 150 FAST installations, students will test and influencing designs through the instrumentality of production. These hands-on design build projects are intended to produce reciprocity between skills and design, making more complete the problems of fabrication. Subject limited to year-one MArch students who have completed core-1 studio. Contact: Nick Gelpi, 9-224, 253-9415, ngelpi@mit.edu -
