The only other time I mentioned that word ‘true’ on this site was about straight lines.
I can often find things I have not seen or heard before by admittedly looking at the ads on my site and although that is not all I do I saw something that rather than clicking I just made note.
The ad mentioned ‘worlds first banking I believe but do not hold me to that.
There has been experiences that have made me question many things. However that never came to mind. Worlds first …..With all my other knowledge that phrase would have never come to my mind. I can recall the saying we know nothing and I certainly don’t know everything. But it, the shape was a worlds first. I think I missed a trick one that one. However the fact still remain.
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 .
I Wonder whether it is because I AM….different or rather the shape.
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.
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?
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!
In my creating, issues regarding the non pictorial finding manifestation, misinterpretations and misunderstandings may have taken place. These creations which I do not regret yet offer my apologies in advance if it caused offense.
If not i still have not lost these marks even if my focus has changed. The journey is the path, so ‘they’ say..
The platform used to create the products and images seen on this domain were created on a mac. This is not about status or critique on other platforms. Since creating Hexatrigon it has become more of an issue that the platform is less compatible for engineering / CAD production. Or more precisely the shape
The understanding of manufacturing infrastructure depends on earlier developments so that dynamic makes sense. However even though costs can overcome this problem that is not something that will immediately change. However I do not believe the shape would exist, in such platforms, as the 3D form would not ‘close’, and not made up with other polygonal forms.
Does that mean it should not exist?
It clearly does, and follows the principles of regular polyhedra.
The creation of the solid digital model that produced the model I call hexatrigon was exported as .stl. Further reading on the field that this format inhabits was as new as the creation was for me. More research on the infrastructure of the technology has me recognising the new dynamics and not just for me.
The UK is the base from which I create and from a extremely insulated position, that is displayed on this domain. The limited exposure to the market was largely subjectively, protection based in the sense of ownership, not with the ear to its global movements. Coincidence has happened in the sense that links and references placed on this domain are part of the same movement but isolated. Not being part of the larger thinking and not recognising the current infrastructure as the immediate target for the use of additive manufacture. Hexatrigon would not exist or be distributable without it. The experiences of Heaxtrigons’ digital production has been a steep learning curve, which has been at cutting edge driven by a singular obsession of making it real. If the difference in the metal frame models of its form with or without spheres on its vertices (that image of problem is not my property ) not its materials is limited by production limitation governed by their programming it was not a conscious disruptive move.
However it is a product of the technology that produces the best representations in terms of precision of its form.
Since the beginning of this particular 3d modeling/ creating journey it has always surprised me how easy it seems the same file can be multifaceted in terms of potential outputs.
The same file opened in a different program this skeleton frame hexatrigon becomes a tangible as the green in this above photograph has rights. Although not as green minded depending the choice of printed material.
