File 159594390335.jpg - (404.94KB , 2000x1333 , blue-bog-oak-table.jpg )

I am making a table with hexagons spaced 3/16th of an inch apart filled with epoxy. The table is approx. 30" deep and 6' long. I need to know the volume of epoxy required to pour 1/4" thick for this table.

i need a little more information, anon. what is the length of the gap? and what is the side length of a single hexagon?

if you can find those out, you can solve for the volume needed using pic related and the formulas below.

Area_Of_Hexagon_Including_Gap = 3sqrt(3) * Gap_Length^2 / 2

Area_Of_Gap = Area_Of_Hexagon_Including_Gap - [ 3sqrt(3) * Side_Length / 2 ]

Area_Of_Table = Length_Of_Table * Width_Of_Table

Number_Of_Hexagons = Area_Of_Table / Area_Of_Hexagons_Including_Gap

Volume_Of_Epoxy_Needed = Area_Of_Gap * Height_Of_Table * Number_Of_Hexagons

minor typo.
Area_Of_Gap = Area_Of_Hexagon_Including_Gap - [ 3sqrt(3) * Side_Length^2 / 2 ]

by the way, if you end up doing the calculations yourself, make sure all your measurements are in inches. that way, you can use the calculator below to find your answer in fluid ounces.

to get the volume of epoxy to get a 1/4" thick layer on top of the hexagons: [ Volume_Of_Epoxy_Needed + (Area_Of_Table * 1/4) ].

Why not cover it with plastic. Pour water in to the depth you need. Pour the water into a measuring cup and maybe add a little more for the wetted volume on the water not in the measuring cup. Fast, cheap accurate.

volume = height * (length*width - nHexagons * areaOfASingleHexagon)

The area of a hexagon is 3*sqrt(3)/2*a^2, where a is the length of one side.

But really you're going to make too much epoxy, so just get it close and then add a little more to be safe. I'm guessing you've done this before, but if you don't degas your epoxy before you pour it, you're not going to get the results you want.

Why the everloving fuck would you subject anyone to the imperial system and then use a conversion calculator when he can measure in centimeters and then end up with volume in cubic centimeters, which is already equal to the volume in mL by definition?
