This is a composition of hexagons made by 3D printing. Everyone is different.
Many of the pieces have been made by myself, but others have been adaptations of figures and textures that I found on the Internet. I'll try to find you and put my thanks here.
Thanks to all the people who inspired me!
This project remains open to the incorporation of more designs. If you want to contribute yours in this series you can do it.
Some of the stl files need to be scaled. Dimensions are
X: 120 mm
Y: 103.923 - 104 mm
Z: 2 mm
How I Designed This
For the preparation of the pieces I have used
- CAD Drawing with Onshape
- Manual drawing and photos treated with gimp and with inkscape, and then I have generated the stl file with openscad
- Direct programming with openscad and BlocksCAD for the generation of recurring figures, functions and fractals
I have done some pieces modifying scad files that I found in Thingiverse. Thanks for sharing the scad!!
