This model is a sendoff of my Ph.D. It’s folded from a poster about my research, created while I was writing my dissertation. It’s really big, about 25 inches (63 cm) across. It’s the third tessellation I’ve made from one of my science posters, thus the title of this piece is “A Deconstruction of My Research 3”.
For this third model, I wanted to do something special, so I tried designing my own tessellation completely from scratch. I was inspired by the Rhombille tiling, which looks a bit like a wall of cubes. So I tried making a wall of cubes. And after a long design process, I was able to perfect it.
Below the fold, I have diagrams and prototypes to document the design process.
