Introduction: This article is about keeping our brains active while sheltering at home. We talked to an expert Kirby Urner about learning C60, who is a philosophy major. Kirby was born in Chicago and has lived all over the world, eventually returning to Portland, Oregon. His journey includes teaching high school math in Jersey City, […]
Curated by Kirby! You have no doubt played a 2D game on a grid of squares, chess or checkers for example. Not every piece moves the same way perhaps, however in principle each square has four neighbors over the edge, and four more along the diagonals. Bishops know those diagonals… …whereas Knights move over one […]
Our purpose here is to elaborate a classic Python framework for storing and writing geometric information in a variety of formats, suitable for ray tracing and use within CAD programs. The target architecture we want to model is Flextegrity, a tension-compression lattice based on holding compression islands in relative positions, in an all-way space. Its inventor […]
We all know that natural disasters are sudden and dangerously powerful. There are many factors that make natural disasters a severe threat to the community worldwide. Even though professionals have learned methods for the anticipation of disasters like hurricanes, blizzards, or tornadoes, some natural disasters still strike without any warning. And one of the most […]
For all major and minor construction projects, slope protection, soil stabilization, erosion control, and earth retention systems are some significant needs. Civil Engineers and landscape architects always worry about how crucial these solutions can be. But you don’t have to worry anymore as C6XTY is here to help with all these aspects. C6XTY lattices can […]
The rhombic triacontahedron (RT) dissects into 120 such modules, left and right handed. Meanwhile, the regular tetrahedron may be sliced into four quadrants, each of which further subdivides into three pairs of left and right handed versions of the same shape, for a total of 24 modules, differently shaped from the ones above. Those of […]
Ground stabilization is the most critical chapter of Geotechnical Engineering along with a load support system. That’s why more than enough methods are developed for stabilization using a wide array of materials. From cement, bitumen, geotextile, to lime, here we will discuss all the plausible ways for ground stabilization to improve the soil properties.
Additive Manufacturing has already changed the conventional methods of designing and manufacturing process. And 3D Geometry is one of the biggest selling points for the technology. From easy fabrication to innovation in designing, the 3D print lattice certainly has more than enough benefits.
VUCA (latest curriculum writing) integrating the concept of “risk” even mentioning “Chief Risk Officer” and VUCA, in this special curriculum: https://github.com/4dsolutions/School_of_Tomorrow/blob/master/stats_works.ipynb Look for this image: At the link above for the School of Tomorrow, you will see that image, and what comes below it is intense mathematics which is why they present it as a […]
Nature has already given us everything we need. But it is the human mind that wants to comprehend more than what exists in nature. C6XTY is creating materials and structures that are based on the geometry nature has already provided us. From C6XTY lattices to the full inception of Buckminster Fuller’s theory of Ephemeralization, C6XTY […]
