Hexatrigon


Below construction created in cardboard by way of folds and cuts. The photo was taken on route to 4D Modelshop to collect the first-ever 3D print to manifest in grey. See Hexatrigon tessellatSteel Made to Aid‘  recreated in metal , cut with best laser cutting precision at hand. 

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

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.

Polylite 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.

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.

As Seasons are integral to all life, as are all the elements. also is a 
respect for the other side, like lines and points. That  ‘close‘ to form this hexagonal/triangular based shape.

This ‘experience’ still remains.,  Experience in terms of this models’ creation/ realisation. These representations  above were the  first attempts to accurately visualise this 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 IN ADDITION TO INTERACTIONS WTH HAWORTH CASTING
The image sent to me, to display the undercuts 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.

Something  I realised after the second cast can be seen above.It could be now seen as a fringe  of some IP if I discuss the method which I may have mentioned somewhere.
