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 […]
Positioning: Flextegrity, Inc. is the inventor/developer/manufacturer of specialty structural materials that anticipate and meet the comprehensive demands of disaster-resistant housing, personal protection, environmental solutions, and other emerging markets. Leverage: The foundation of Flextegrity’s intellectual property is a unique and innovative geometry for assembled structural materials. We will succeed in the market by providing anticipatory and […]
From Tensegrity to Flextegrity (aka, “How in the heck did you ever think this up??”) Inventors with strikingly novel concepts are often asked, “How in the world did you ever come up with that idea?”. My experience as author and creator of Flextegrity’s new technology has been no exception. However, my surprise is not that […]
What is it? Flextegrity has developed and patented a 3-dimensional tensile lattice that is easily constructed from two component parts. The soccer ball shape is excellent for distributing compressive forces across its surface. Buckminster Fuller described these as ‘islands of compression.’ The balls then are surrounded in a ‘sea of tension.’ Tension and compression can […]
Lattices are both a framework made of metal or metal strips and a regular geometrical arrangement of atoms or molecules in a crystalline solid. C6XTY isn’t actually a thing by itself, but a name to a structural form that can be made from almost any substance and on any size, bigger or smaller. It utilizes […]
Retaining walls plays a major role in construction work for urban areas. When a construction or architecture company starts to work on a civic project, some considerations need to be made. From constructing a pole to building an urban structure, the governments all around the globe have laid special instructions to make the structures safe […]
