i used a custom printed card as the symbol of transition to Hexatrigon. On it, it said something that at the time I thought was common knowledge even if it was misunderstood.
Not to dwell, this post harks back to that premise only now for blue sky thinking in reverse as it stands calls for a more silicone base. That is in order to bring life in a sense to multiple forms of the shape.
I suppose resin, rubber, wax, plaster, concrete, sand etc could also do just as good although the purpose would be different…:
I don’t think any silicon based life forms are about yet?
I started from a position of not knowing which although can show ignorance i would rather not use that word. To not know is to not know.
The journey to hexatrigon if you want to call it that was not meant to offend, upset or cause problems. It has had to overcome difficulties and still does.
Many words could accompany the name of this post but i would like to say to all CAD / traditional engineering professionals that when i created the shape and urged it on to make it real, The term undercuts was not in my knowledge bank. I would hasten to add I would not have any solid based intellectual property without them.
Also the shear amount of new materials was another. There are a huge array of them in the realm of products or production. Never mind file formats.
My experiences of life have crossed many fields which caused me to withdraw almost completely.
I cannot apologies for assuming that what could be made with paper/cardboard which i classed as flat would involve much trouble or adaptions to be 3 dimensional and solid. When i almost wanted to flatten it like the image.
No blame. I resisted, at least with the metal versions. Although I reckon it could handle some pressure. How much?
