Geometric Shapes in HyPars

Spiked Structures

It is often possible to invert the HyPar Cell to create what we call a “spiked” structure. Two examples of these are the inverted or “spiked” versions of the Rhombohedron and Rhombic Dodecahedron.

Mirror Image Structures

HyPar Label
HyPars have their right handed edges labeled with “HyPars to differentiate between right and left. Using this, entire structures can be either right or left handed. Check out The Right/Left Conundrum for more information.
Examples of mirror image structures include:
Left Handed Trefoil
Right Handed Trefoil
Left Handed Triangular Bar
Right Handed Triangular Bar
