Love this… creative way of thinking

All versions of Hexatrigon have always had symmetry, it just took me some time to show.

Hole determined by the thickness of steel, in this case, 3mm. 5 sided drawing tool.

I see cubes although it was not created with that in mind, creativity is its limit.

Maybe what i called ‘Made to Aid’ is really Hexatrigon!  What that would then mean for the polyhedron shape, time will tell.

Additive Manufacturing / 3d printing ready hole if required of your own making. The angle aid as originally envisaged after creating plywood versions,  where the angles needed to join cut beveled edges where crucial. In addition to other materials

The concept of sharing assets or functionality is not a unique concept as a result of monetary devices, opportunity or creative thinking being some things that are extremely difficult to truly protect. Reflecting where something comes from in practical or theoretical terms help its authenticity.

United in difference. Mixed processes of manufacture same form different materials and manufacturers,

Hexatrigon the sound may have previous connotations as well as the word but it’s solid /virtual manifestations, as far as I know, are mine for now. “Blue sky thinking” was the process of realisation of hexatrigon particularly its digital transformations.

Which classification of protection do original 3D printed polyhedra fall into? Maybe it is a ‘grey’ area like the Titanium and Aluminium Hexatrigons printed at  i.materialise.com or Sculpteo.com. Extremely thankful for IP, and the principles of the Additive Manufacturing industry. As my first ventures raised issues of concern.

 

However some things I may see make me realise what is possible when the right minds/ designers/ architects/ engineers and scientists get together. They may not have any connection to me other than to say  Mi Luv Yu Bad as the concepts they embody and reflect are aspects of mine. Respect for, not only design & creativity but also are modern renewable energies/ materials etc.

this ‘lived experience’ still remains. being introduced to the concept before Hexatrigons’ creation/ realisation. This image above was the  first attempt to accurately visualise the 3D form in 2D
