Mechanical Art Table


To create an easily adjustable Art table for adults with limited mobility, such as wheelchair restrictions.

  • Remote/Easy switch controlled raising, lowering, and rotation
  • Tablet features
  • Providing greater stability for users

Our initial idea:

First drawing idea for table- material wood

The table given to us had many components we could use, so we decided to work with what we had and redesign the base (to increase stability) and tilt function (to make the tilt max 90° vs their original 360° )

Some components:

Stepper motor for actuator
3D printed holder for tilt wheels
Original base – Not structurally stable


Done with wiring:

We have added stability with an 8020 base. We have completed the wiring and coding to raise and lower the table. However, the motor is very loud and slow (especially going up). We are looking into eliminating this problem, keeping in mind that there may be HIPsters with aversion to the noise level.
