An actual virtual reality

The doubts of some (at one stage even me) and the reality of others. The images work from right to left in terms of time, and from virtual to real objects, brought to you via the tools, skills and companies of Additive Manufacturing  plus some ‘ blue sky thinking models’ . On the journey there was some real doubts as to whether what is pictured was actually possible because all 3d printing especially in metal need to be supported or have supports which allow for the setting or cooling of materials at different stages of the job. That obviously need to be removed!

For this unless you have a printer of your own those background tasks are not visible. Safe to say this was overcome and why I respect those whom I do not necessarily know and whose efforts even within the same company don’t know each other  but from the outset made me at least recognise what has been done for the model  irrespective of where they where from with best wishes to them all for what has been done and what will be done in the future all being well. and of course many thanks.

This model is interactive.

Those who will handle a hexatrigon could count them and  confirm the equation for themselves if interested.

This post is quite important as although not a page i have altered before not to avoid the truth more to try to keep it factual, it is quite difficult to represent in image that is protected as a real object but not the planes and is only image.And the model in 360 viewer having some problems with the colour, for multicolour 3d printing, which don’t have the same reference without it. But following suite i post these mistakes to inform / document.

 

Coincidence or fate?  This below image relates to the productional step of above 3d model in viewer. I will see what i actually get and will not question one thing.

The models that relate to scale are above.

Late Addition

it has been some time since I spoke about  this scale issue and to keep in suit with mistakes what I thought the print would look like from the model and the image proved to be INCORRECT. Although corrected or rather doubted and responded it can be done just not as seen.

Below is what I received  after everything worts and all. It’s red too.
