This Invention Has Inspire me Greatly as a Artist and Fabricator, Upon seeing this for the first time and falling in love with its simplistic and elegant complexity, I knew I had to build one one day. 10 year have passed but now I can finally say I have Achieved my Goal!
Below you will find some of my most recent Photos and Video of the process. I will be updating this site as time goes on and add more detail and history. Keep checking back.
ABOVE: This was my First attempt to Build a physical example or Proof of concept. I found the DIHEDRAL ANGLES in a Old Geometry Book called " The Geometrical foundation of natural structure" A source book of Design by Robert Williams. After Spending some time on my table saw and some 2x3 s , I was able to prove the angles were correct!!! Pentagon= 18.7 degrees Hexagon=20.9 degrees
In September of 2017 I was introduced to Fusion 360 by AUTODESK. Its a Robust Cloud based 3D modeling and engineering program and its FREE to download and start using!!! The Shapes or parts I design can be toolpathed in the same programed, simulated and generates the G-code for your CNC machine. But in this case I was able to create this form in Fusion 360 and then generate the STL file I needed to Then bring into "Slic3r Prusa Edition" and fine tune my print and take that G-Code and Print them on a Original Prusa i3 MK2S.
