I have many books about geometric construction.

A few years ago in one of them, I found a paragraph about the K-dron patented by Kapitza. I studied the form and created a 2-D pattern for it.


Then I printed a bunch of them on construction paper. I asked my students to build them. We glued the best ones next to each other on a piece of cardboard.Then depending on the angle of a direct light we could see rhombuses or triangles or parallelograms. It was quite intriguing.…

Autodesk University: Labs photogrammetry

Just in a class using Photo Scene Editor at Autodesk University - new photogrammetry software - basically it stitches your photos on their servers to create a 3D model. I tried this before the class... not sure if I'm going to learn anything new. What I wanted to learn was how export this as a mesh, which doesn't seem to be enabled in the download. Will update soon on this feature...

Ning 4 Ever

Quick Update: I have renewed the Ning subscription, which some people had mentioned was moving from free to paid - so we can stay with Curved Folding on Ning... Ning is the choice of the Grasshopper network, and various other Rhino related networks - so a good choice for us here too. It also makes it easy to manage workshops and other group activities - so feel free to set up your own groups, use the forum or upload pictures and videos. See you soon, Greg.

Thanks John - Ning will announce their pricing plans on the 4th May. (The site is a paid site anyway). I will try and maintain this site as-is rather than port to another platform, but this is an option. Will keep everyone updated via the forum...Greg
