It was those circles edging on sacred

It was the cross over of purpose that led to me adopt this as a tool. It was only by this method that some imagery I had seen in several places came into being. I was aiming at three hexagons with adjoining edge on two sides. It did alter my comprehension of many things that have structure at its heart. Where faith comes in, in the future not forgetting more less faith based privileges. I mention this as like many other things it  has had an influence.

closest reference to one of the registered tools guide lines  are on the other side so would the holes be.


Am I just too close

i have never thought about having more or giving more than one. I forget it is actually a shape all of its own, to be used a you feel fit. Please keep me in some kind of check

I said so, didn’t I

I mentioned in an earlier post that I felt a material symptom coming on,  I think it was planet conscious

I  have not succumbed to it unnecessarily it has been for a reason. This time it was to see the made to aid in more than the image that was registered.

It may have some faults but will not know until I try. Keep posted to see the image turn into a photo of a custom 3D print

i wonder of the one file will actually be six individual pieces?

time will tell

Ps. Time did tell, the print was cancelled due to grouped objects in file, i did however did have the shape as a pendant like file with a hoop also but resisted to raised that job!!!!! Must keep this material thing in check.

A Matter of Intellectual Property

In a bid to engage with the wider world, a matter of protection was required. There after non disclosure agreements may need to be the order of the day. At least that is meaningful in the Uk at least,  as voting for anything else seems problematic

Registered with or without spheres solid or otherwise. For general  Ornamental use.

Rows since Article 50

In a bid to make something more useful. pre- brexit and still awaiting responses to initial request in regards the original idea of a  ice tray in a flexible material within UK,  in the meantime it has arrived from where? The EU .

  1. Blue sky thinking in white rows (imaterialise)
  2. cooperation anyone?

I Wonder whether it is because I AM….different or rather the shape.

Late Addition

It has now come to my attention that i could well have been putting the cart before the horse or even go as far as to say,  “i should have stuck to my plan”.

The inquiry into the desired object was not without merit just without knowledge of how undercuts hinder injection moulding and CNC machining. In some post or other i have mentioned the problems of the shape. but i have to be last one who gives up on it don’t you think.

For a more informed position click below link

Any contributions beyond the more common way of just copying are welcome, not for me to just copy but to created something even more. That would be unique too i might add……..

I wont comment on the more banal uses akin to throwing stones. There is enough of that going already.

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 were 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.

wkiipedia polyhedron for missing image

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

This post is quite important, although it is 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 what is protected as a real object but not with the planes and is only image.

And the model. above 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. Make special note of the percentage/ scale. 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 all red too.

Multicolour 3D prints arranged to mimic the above image  September 2019


very first self cast & what would be on the reverse of a card if you have one! If you don’t you were on of the first much love

On the path……?

Expressing some love one image at a time has created a situation where even when trying to factually depict actual objects.  Without the real object to touch even that seems to be insufficient  to convince its actuality. Even when all that can be submitted for review is photo, image, illustration, tiff or gif based. And then is perceived to be only an idea. I have many ideas yet to be formed.

Some imagery on my front page is a from what is a precursor to production via 3d print-ing.  which had been imported into a photo editing program and was not edited. In conjunction with that which is the actual.

I am aware how the visual domain is indeed trapped within the structure of language. But what has been more or a surprise is how what something actual is, fails into insignificance because it is not a thing! That is not the same as language as what it is, is what it has been described or observed, but it has no history prior to that what has been presented.

If by some form of adaption like a hoop is added, does that simple action trump what was before the hoop? And does the hoop have a specific role that then determines what it can be associated with?

We stand on the shoulders of giants, what would have been the case if those giants took every thing with them? Leaving only a stick in the ground would the stick then be only used in the ground and have no other role?


United in different materials

This is my stick, but can you see the wick? (above the a of tessellated) Does the wick in the form of an unknown geometric form yet regular candle determine the other forms?  Which would all burn or melt if the heat was sufficient with or without a flame!
