This is a work in progress Tetrix beam. I have to laser cut it out of plywood, and intend to laser cut it out of acrylic (and maybe mill it in the future!). Even though I dont plan on using them, I included a 3D files anyways.
I will update this as progress is made!
Using Adobe illustrator to design a Tetrix flower
Designing The Plate
I used the same curvature as a normal Tetrix flat as to keep the feel of an OEM Tetrix part. After I had the curve and length, I made a second identical plate and rotated it 60 degrees. I made these meet at the curvature.
I added holes to this with the normal spacing of a Tetrix beam. I deiced to make the axis hole be lined up with one side rather than being misaligned and contiguous (i did this for mounting integrity)
This is just the irst test out of wood! it works well though. I plan on testing it in other mediums.
