A fully suspended closed circle on two support legs. The loop is composed of 34 segments, alternating trianges with pyramids.

Building Instructions

  1. Create the bottom arc of 9 segments.
  2. Add the support legs downward from the ends of the arc.
  3. Continue adding segments upwards to complete the entire circle.
    • Keep the two sides balanced as you are building upwards.


Calculations

let alpha = arcsin(1/sqrt(3)) = 35.264 degrees, be the semi face angle of an equilateral square-based prism.

Then each segment of the curve moves through 2*alpha - 60 degrees = 10.528 degrees

So, 34 segments move trough 357 degrees, which is close enough to absorb.
