It's a bed, made from wood, held together by Rietveld connections.

Complete source lives at https://github.com/byteborg/household/tree/master/hannah-bed


Basically, it's a parametric SCAD file that lets you input mattress size and the dimensions of the wood you're building the bed with. It outputs an STL and some measurements. Some of the measurements are buggy, please double-check.

The included BOM is caluculated for 90x200cm Matress and 58x58mm wooden beams.

Also included is a plastic part that fits on the 10 brackets holding the mattress, effectively rounding the edges of the metal as a safety measure. This is optional and due to the fact that I decided to integrate a standard mattress frame.

  1. enter mattress and wood dimensions in SCAD file
  2. calculate material sizes
  3. buy enough wood
  4. cut to appropriate lengths
  5. drill
  6. sand with 100 grain paper, sweep with damp cloth, sand again with 200 grain paper, sweep
  7. apply glaze - I used bee wax in linseed oil solution
  8. assemble
  9. be happy ;)

Could you add a close up photo of the printed parts on the assembled bed? I'd like to show it to my hackerspace buddies on Tuesday.


There you go. I added the plastic part assembly as test part and installed in the frame.



FYI: I'll give a short talk about designing and building this bed, tomorrow, together with other #hackffm projects at Webmontag in Frankfurt http://webmontag.de/location/frankfurt/indexhttp://webmontag.de/location/f...

Nice work! Congratulation, and thanks for sharing :o)

step 9 is the hard part

why? when everything fits, all parts assembled, it occured to be rather easy for me ;)
