Love this… creative way of thinking

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!

Steel Made to Aid‘  recreated in metal below, cut with best laser cutting precision at hand.

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

Could what I call ‘Made to Aid’  be Hexatrigon too? Technically they are both 3d.  Only time will tell.

hole if required of your own making. This angle aid as originally envisaged after creating plywood versions. This is where the angles needed to join edges where crucial even though it was achieved with some additional materials;-)

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, created for manufacture.


This model is for a Multicolour print, I previously had a .stl model conversion to, .obj (no colour/material etc.) in the viewer.

It is now occurring to me that the scale issue which relates to all the multicolour prints,  that  I alluded to on the post ‘An actual Virtual Reality‘ has consequences. So did the multicolor print also see same posting. 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.

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 printed polyhedra fall into? Maybe it is a ‘grey’ area like the Titanium and Aluminium Hexatrigons printed at or 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.
