no previous part Part 1 of Rectangular designs series Part 2: Pyramid illusion »

I started this blog separated from the spiral design because all the designs that will be posted here will be in a rectangular form.

If you extend that circular arc by projecting it linearly, then a Sine wave will be produced. The distance of the y axis varies with the time…

On the following design I used a cosine curve because I like to concentrate on putting the smaller pieces in the middle. So this is how it looks…..

Sinusoidal rectangle

One at a time.. I will do in flesh after I finished the spiral…. Probably if anybody is interested on the sketchup file.. just pm me and I would be willing to share it FREE. Anyway this was only a creation due to my love of combining Mathematical concepts such as geometry, trigonometry, etc… on my freetime past times. It keeps my imagination and creativity enhanced.

There’s something beautiful about math.

I remember in electronics an ‘O scope’ image of an electronic echo that was just wonderful to view…

Your drawing reminds me of that image….

Ron, You are perfectly right.. I was inspired by graphics produced from a PID controller. Here I can also play with the Oscilloscope image. I am working in a Maritime training center, we have the laboratory for that matter.

Thanks,

Interesting design, Bert I look forward to seeing you realise it. I wish I had time to look into this further, myself but I have other ideas I’m working on at present.

The calculations used to design this go far beyond my mental capacity. Good luck Bert!
