Hinged Dissections

October 5, 2017 Maddy B

For our project we will be exploring the rhombic dodecahedron which is a 3D shape that is made when you turn a 3D cube inside out.  Our method for printing this will be printing out 6 pyramids of the same dimension and taping them together so that we can form both […]

Prince Rupert’s Cube

October 5, 2017 Taylor Zabinsky

Our project idea is to make a Prince Rupert’s Cube. The Prince Rupert problem was proposed by Prince Rupert of the Rhine, Prince Rupert’s cube is the largest cube that can pass through a hole cut through another cube without splitting the cube into two pieces. This proposition was […]

Mathematically Fair Cake Cutting

October 5, 2017 Dillon Call

My group members and I originally wanted to look into Chapter 4 of Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension by: Matt Parker. However, we decided to switch and do our project on cutting a cube to be equal in volume no matter how many slices it is cut into. If 5 people […]

The chapter we chose for our project was chapter 9, which is all about graphs. For our project, we chose to do a 3D print of a Rhombicuboctahedron. We believed it would be easy to print because it is made up of triangles and squares. We would like to learn coding to make a wire frame […]

Borromean rings

October 3, 2017 Jenna Jordan

Our project idea is to create a print of elliptical Borromean rings from chapter 8 of our book. Borromean rings often contain three rings, but can contain up to four or five. We are going to start out with a three ring print because it is the most simple way to make Borromean rings, then […]

Meissner Tetrahedron

October 3, 2017 Hunter Simmons

Our initial project idea is to create a Meissner tetrahedron. It involves taking a regular triangular tetrahedron, but then rounding all the parts to a precise point creates the Meissner Tetrahedron. What is really cool about this is that, although it is not like a circle containing zero edges […]

Trefoil Knots

October 3, 2017 Ni Trisadhani

Our group will be making the Trefoil Knot which is one of the prime knots based on chapter 8 of Things to Make And Do In The Fourth Dimension. We were very interested in this particular knot because it looks different with each kind of projection and there are many ways that we can […]

The Pizza Problem

October 3, 2017 Sam Janssen

For our open project idea, we decided to experiment with the relationships of the “perfect pizza slice” with its self and with the pizza as a whole as a solution to the pizza problem. The goal of the pizza problem is to find how to cut a pizza into same shaped slices that don’t all touch the middle […]
