Toroidal Armature

Toroidal Armature


The matrix shown in tubular form showing zig-zag, armchair and chiral.

I believe that Hexaflex can be used as a toroidal armature in order to hold the windings of a toroidal coil in a pre-ordained geometrically governed set of three spiral paths moving around the toroid.
One of these spirals is that of the Rodin coil.


Once the angle is chosen and set into the armature, two other winding paths are formed set at 120 degrees from the original spiral angle. I wonder what results three windings would create.

    I am amazed by the potentials of hexaflex. Have you ever made a torus with hexaflex? What would the 2D pattern look like? It's fascinating that channels would be available in a hexaflex torus. Perhaps the wires could be wrapped into these "venting channels"?

  2. Aloha Scott,
    Here you will see hexaflex rolled up into a tube.Now imagine joining the two ends of the tube to create a torus. So the 2d pattern is hexaflex as seen in my blog.
    Hope this helps.

  9. I have the same opinion with most of your points, but a few need to be discussed further, I will hold a small discussion with my partners and maybe I will ask you some opinion later.

  20. The problem with this trellis/lattice shown here is that a "tube torus" is the wrong model. The inner 'hole' should converge infinitely in the manner of a cone infinitely approaching/compressing to a point with smaller and smaller circles spaced smaller and smaller apart.
    Precise armature construction procedure outlined here http://vortexspace.org/display/glossary/Circle-Trellis+Construction+Procedure - Programmers needed to build an applet in LWJGL with either Xith3D or JME (java monkey engine).
