Prototype Meshagon Wheel (Lambo 03) 3D Model
Design for an ultra-light, super-strong wheel rim. The asymmetric web-structure is a Meshagon and is one solid, manifold unit; confirmed printabe. Note that this is NOT a surface derived mesh or lattice but a watertight FE-mesh solid (first ever), thus, he fine internal structures can be freely changed and optimized to achieve dynamic stability or other goals both aesthetic and engineering/etc.
It is fully procedurally/analytically generated via my own code (mostly Python, C#) and some support/viz code from Netgen and Blender.
Meshagons, as I call them, are NOT lattices. Rather they are Finite Element meshes that are optimized for strength and fine structural control of strut/node sizes and shape. This is the largest meshagon (shown here strongly decimated, original was 50M+ poly) that I have yet made. It took appx. 3 days to calculate (i7 and nvidia 1070, 32G ram). Currently working on AWS EC2 with elastic GPUs to increase needed horsepower.
