Clips to build cellular structures using 3mm filament.

This structure can be thought of as ordinary cube with each corner cutoff.

The springy plastic makes it flexible, though it tends not to come out exactly straight due to the filament being bent.


To make a 14 sided structure.

Print 72 joiners and cut 72 10cm lengths of 3mm filament.

Connect joiners and filament into 18 squares so that the 'mouth' of each joiner point outwards from each corner.

Arrange 6 squares into a hexagon to form the base, and another 6 squares into an identical hexagon for the top.

Place 6 squares on one side of the base, then attach the top. See the images as a guide.

This pattern can be repeated by using the base of one structure for the top of another.
