After a long day of work with Chris Ingram, Dan Dodds and Thanasis Korras yesterday, we have nearly finished 3D modelling the two projects. The Fractal Cult was redrawn using rules defined by the hinge connection suggested by Ramboll. There are 5 different types of piece that make up each of the four fractal cults. Extracts from the rules as specified by Dan Dodds and Thanasis Korras:
The Acute angles on all triangles all have bolt holes with an offset of 32mm
The Obstuse angles all have bolt holes with an offset of 22mm
For each Fractal Cult pods:
12x Large AAO [Acute,Actute,Obtuse] : Side length 1241mm
18x Medium AOO [Acute,Obtuse,Obtuse] : Side length 608mm
9x Medium AAO [Acute,Actute,Obtuse] : Side length 591mm
54x Small AOO [Acute,Obtuse,Obtuse] : Side length 283mm
108x Small AAO [Acute,Actute,Obtuse] : Side length 266mm

The Shipwreck now has more support on the ground which will help with the cantilever. The supports being more pronounced, we used this as an opportunity to create a bench. We are planning to finish the fabrication files this afternoon. We are still missing some notches, thickness as well as labelling and unrolling all the pieces.
