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 […]
Thinking through the shapes with all of the math working precisely, enters Kirby Urner, holding a diagram of the geometry, no, wait, an animated gif pushing the power of visualization. Here we have a Cuboctahedron dual Rhombic Dodecahedron… 6-square-8 triangular-14-in-all-Cuboctahedron-dual-Rhombic-Dodecahedron-Yellow-and-Blue-respectively! This is not only for geometry buffs. There are practical applications.
Flextegrity, Inc. makes possible advanced polyhedral materials that anticipate and meet the comprehensive demands of civil engineering applications, disaster-resistant housing, environmental solutions, and revolutionary product designs. The foundation of Flextegrity’s intellectual property is a unique and innovative icosahedron and truncated icosahedrons tensile architecture for assembled structural materials called “C6XTY.” In later patents the work has […]
by Mark A. Martin, Ph.D. August 2006, © Flextegrity, Inc. 2006, 2007 Introduction An icosahedral material is a regular threedimensional array of icosahedra held together by a repeating pattern of flexible interconnecting bands. Each interconnecting band attaches to exactly two icosahedra and each icosahedron has up to 12 bands attached to it, depending on its position […]
