Mathematical analysis of laser-cut ‘living hinges’

Area man finds practical use for math

[Patrick Fenner] realised that a bit of mathematical modelling could lead to better designed hinges. This could mean fewer rounds of trial-and-error prototype tests, which would reduce the cost of using lattice hinges in a project, and better fatigue resistance, meaning the hinges could be used for moving parts instead of just for static bends.

Just wanted to pop in and mention the photo on this article is from a thing I made over at: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:12930

Keep up the good work!
