Prototype sub-assembly for a 2-iteration Menger sponge kit. Full kit will be 414 pieces! (Most of them the very small ones.)
Wrote up some more details on this test on birbsite:
Fifth of six passes. Next one is gonna be a doozy. https://mastodon.social/media/1eqWF18qCOqMzqHlbN8
Tonight I managed to finalize a working design for a laser cut Menger sponge (vs. the simpler pseudo-sponge with no insides that I'd done recently).
Doesn't look a ton different from the pseudo-sponge at a glance, but it's far more mathematically satisfying. Has a nicer heft too from the extra pieces. Also a lot more work to put together!
Sixth pass on Accumulating Bisections; fourth pass on Accumulating Sierpinski Carpet; action shot of that fourth pass going on. #art
It's the most wonderful time of the year: the time to lose your mind and/or punish others with the best worst thing I've ever made, a random infinite xmas carol generator:
Did a great big 90 minute glowforge cut today, of this 5-iteration Sierpinski carpet...and had a fuck up right at the end with the software that led to an alignment problem that ruined the whole thing.
I mean it's still neat looking, but it's fucked up too and I was hoping to make one that wasn't fucked up.
