PLEDGE 16 EURO OR MORE AT KICKSTARTER.COM AND RECEIVE FACTORY PRODUCED SANKAKKEI IN A COLOR SERIES OF YOUR CHOOSING
Help raise the funds needed to get Sankakkei factory produced. If the goal is met, you receive Sankakkei in high quality smooth plastic in a color series of your choosing completed with a corresponding box design.
The Sankakkei prototypes are printed in Strong and Flexible polished plastic, making it possible to produce this product in small quantities. But due to a recent price change by Shapeways, and the fact that printing multi-parts objects is absurdly expensive, I had to 'sprue' the loose parts in my models (like the vintage model-kits from back in the old days) to keep it all affordable.
With your help, and other micro-investors like you, Sankakkei can be factory produced in high quality fine plastic in an unlimited range of colors, for way less production costs and without any 'sprue'. This will also give me the opportunity to produce a stylized corresponding box packaging for you to store your seeds and rods in.
About this model
13 seeds / 36 rods #white #M-size.
+ 2 seeds and 2 rods extra
The Vector Equilibrium is formed by pointing 8 tetrahedrons inwards, the exact opposite of the Star Tetrahedron, using the same amount of rods but needs 1 seed less.
The Vector Equilibrium, as its name describes, is the only geometric form wherein all of the vectors are of equal length and angular relationship (60° angles throughout). From a physics standview it represents the ultimate and perfect condition wherein the movement of energy comes to a state of absolute equilibrium, and therefore absolute stillness and nothingness. As Buckminster Fuller states, because of this it is the zero-phase from which all other forms emerge.
“The vector equilibrium is the zero starting point for happenings or non happenings: it is the empty theater and empty circus and empty Universe ready to accommodate any act and any audience.”
- Buckminster Fuller
Sankakkei Star Tetrahedron Seeds #M-size.
Size: ø 12 mm with ø 3 mm holes - The ‘Star Tetrahedron’ seed enables you to build the Tetrahedron, Octahedron, Star Tetrahedron, Vector Equilibrium, Isotropic Vector Matrix and the 64-Tetrahedron Cube or any other structure with tetrahedronal angles and axis.
Sankakkei Rods #White #M-size.
Size: ø 3.1 mm with a length of 6.4 cm.
Note: Although I'm very pleased with the service and quality Shapeways and 3D-printing has to offer, this is still a prototype product and will be perfected in factory production and completed with a stylized packaging.
