Had a browse through your great stuff and thought you might be a person that could give me some leads.
I want to make a tetrahedron based sound source (4 small ~2.5″ loudspeakers, one centred in each of the planes). In addition I want the loudspeakers pulled back into the body of the tetrahedron with the shape of the resulting surfaces to be minimal. I also want to be able to “flat pack” the sides to help transport (I need to be able to take this as hold baggage on a plane). My gut feel is to just use a linear connection between the loudspeaker and the edges. Cheers.
You made great comments on my site before http://digigami.wordpress.com, wanted to thank you. I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind helping me again. I’ve been working alot making physical models of the Ron Resch tesselated fold and now I wanted to make a digital one in grasshopper. Basically to do what the rigid simulator does but with more control. Any ideas on how to start? Thanks in advance and I understand if you don’t want to give away your secrets!
I am so impressed with your work. I am studying Human Computer Interaction Design with interest in using smart materials for dynamic product interface (which can change shape or texture according to different contexts of use). In this vein , your work on deployable/transformable surface is really inspiring to me.
It seems like that you used typical paper or cardboard for that work. However, it is really interesting that even the material properties of the surface look so different in the video clip that I am wondering if you had used special types of materials. Could you let me know of the materials that you had used if they are different from usual papers? That would be really helpful for my research without waiting for advanced nanotechnology to be available to designers. =)
Thank you for inspiring work. I really enjoyed them.
Hi Daniel, I am a week away from handing in my part 1 final project at Canterbury School of Architecture – I composed a project purely based on my take of Virilios oblique function – I have visited your blog previously as I work in Rhino and was learning some Grasshopper from you – but since I noticed your interest in Virilio I thought you migh be interested . Kind regards, L
Wow, I found this place on Google searching for something completely different, now I’m going to have to go back and go through the old material! So long free time this morning, but this was a great find :)
Hi Daniel, thoroughly impressive work. I am doing a study on real world folding tetrahedra trusses and i’m just wondering where i could find further information on the tetrahedra and similar folding trusses that you display on your vimeo video page. especially the first and last video segments?
congratulations for your work!
Several years ago I was engaged in a research about joints for deployable structures to be used in extreme environments.
Do you have any link in which joints’ theme is examined deeply?
All the best.
I am experimenting with a deployable structure idea. I have Rigid Origami Simulator. Can you tell me how you produced the movies you’ve made with this? I can only seem to get it to advance frame by frame.
I’ll share the file when I’ve got something more complete.
I realy love your website, especially folding.
It’s a very good inspiration for personal and design works.
Here you can see an animation I realise for an art school work by a folding I find on your website : http://vimeo.com/7650070
I hope you enjoy !
Ps : Sorry my english is so bad, I’m ashamed…
Ps2 : I can’t export neigther in bitmap neigher in “.obj” with RigidOrigami, do you know what is the cause of the problem ?
excellent work with parametric tools.
You mentioned that you completed RIBA1 at AASchool. Have you learned all that scripting skills there, or besides AA program? I’m attending AA at autumn and would like to know your experience.
I understand that Foster is using some GAs in the early design phase. Is there any truth to this? If so does he actually use the genetic process for design or simply run the algorithms until he gets something that he wanted anyway?
Hy Daniel! I used a picture you put in one post to build some origami models. I’m graduating in building engineering in Rome and trying to build a deploybale structure origami inspired.
Only now I discovered you work in Arup, that is where I would love to go. Hope my thesis will help with that.
Thanks for everything.

Thanks for a marvelous posting! I really enjoyed reading it, you
happen tto be a great author. I will always bookmark your blog and will eventually come
back in the future. I want to encourage you too definitely continue your great writing, have
a nice holiday weekend!
Your work and research is truly AMAZING. I discovered a demonstration of paper structure by you on Vimeo. I am a student at the Montreal’s school of design and i would be grateful if you could share the 0:22 seconds pattern. In any case thank you for sharing your work ! You can reach me trough firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Dan! I would like to quote “Rheotomic Surfaces / Space Symmetry Structure” Journeys in the Apeiron for an academic paper. Can you provide me the correct information, the date you wrote the paper and if it was published? I need this ASAP, AKA yesterday.. =) Very beautiful work!
