“Hexatrigon” – constructive, productive, formerly creative Think differently

Below a construction created in cardboard by way of folds and cuts. The photo was taken on route to 4D Modelshop to collect the first-ever manifest grey resin 3D print!

First many thanks to the developer who created this viewer! (it is interactive), In order to allow you to engage with 3d virtual space and me to show you the full 360 views of 3d models..

     

This 3d model is also a Multicolour print.It is  a .stl model conversion to, .obj (no colour/material etc.) An alternative view is on’ Actual virtual realities’ and model file name extension associated with multicolour printing.(no missing planes once printed)

It is now occurring to me that a scale issue which relates to all that batch of  multicolour prints,  that  I alluded to on  ‘Actual Virtual Realities‘ could have consequences. (not for this size ) Click the viewer to stop rotation then zoom in & out and please do.

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.

Clear polyester resin self-cast- This I believe is the only item I never revealed the source. It is a fibreglass company in Co. Antrim . (Sorry the wax pellets were  from Scotland) The spray release was Macsil.  Shame that i did get chance to cast many.

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.

Mixed processes of manufacture of same form different materials and Additive manufacturers,

Which classification of protection did an original 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 to 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 etc 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.,  Hexatrigons’ creation/ realisation. These representations  above were the  first attempts to accurately visualise the 3D form in 2D plus the actual print-titanium- satin finish

REPLICATIONS OFROWS IN ALTERNATIVE SIZE

DID NOT KNOW OF UNDERCUTS BEFORE THESE TECHNICAL DRAWINGS / IMAGES SENT FROM RK CAD SERVICES FOR NON ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING
The image sent to me to display the undercuts was with the red triangles highlighting the issue
Platinum silicone mould general casting purpose the material is also food safe.

This cast and polyamide rows prints are from the tax year 2018-2019! When I found out the materials used beforehand were not food safe! Before I investigated Uk sources to look into producing more than one or two prints at a time. And received above the technical drawing. for a more recognisable infrastructural manufacturing.

Below a photo of clear rows of Hexatrigons  food  & medical safe for casting purposes. Slightly different model to the print in white, which the mould above is cast from that MODEL is not food safe as informed by the manufacturer. This model was produced as a result of interaction with the manufacturer considering all the production implications.

I came across this way to enable manufacturing and although I am unable to commit, to making the part  if it was present at my manufacturing start I may never have encountered  3d printing at all
