Title (EN) BUILDING BLOCKS
(FR) BLOCS DE CONSTRUCTION
Abstract:
(EN) The invention provides a basic building piece (10) capable of combining with other, identical basic building pieces to form three-dimensional geometric models of the five regular polyhedrons (tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron), or, more accurately, the Archimedean counterparts or truncated versions of these polyhedrons, as well as structures based on combinations of these solids, and other irregular and complex solids and shells. The basic building piece comprises a flat, generally hexagonal member carrying three types of fastening members (20, 30, 40) on its edges and surfaces to enable the desired variety of connection configurations with other, identical building pieces, and the structures resulting therefrom. Each type of fastening member includes a ball (22, 32, 42) and a socket (24, 34, 44) element. In one embodiment, completed forms utilize the interplay of transparent colored pieces to create aesthetic patterns and multicolor relationships.
(FR) Eléments structuraux de base (10) pouvant être combinés avec d'autres éléments structuraux de base identiques afin de réaliser des figures géométriques des cinq polyèdres réguliers (tétraèdre, hexaèdre, octaèdre, dodécaèdre, et icosaèdre) ou, plus précisément, les versions équivalentes ou tronquées d'Archimède de ces polyèdres, ainsi que des structures basées sur des combinaisons de ces solides, et d'autres solides et corps irréguliers et complexes. L'élément structural de base comprend un élément plat généralement hexagonal portant trois types d'éléments de fixation sur ses arêtes et surfaces afin de permettre la diversité voulue des configurations des connexions avec d'autres éléments structuraux identiques et les structures en résultant. Chaque type d'élément de fixation comprend une boule (22, 32, 42) ainsi qu'un élément (24, 34, 44) d'emboîtement. Dans un mode de réalisation, des formes complètes utilisent les effets combinés de pièces colorées transparentes afin de créer des configurations esthétiques et des relations multicolores.
