Impossible triangles

December 18, 2011 — Impossible triangles. Here are some photos I took of an actual physical object printed by a 3-d printer at TX/RX labs, in Houston Tx. There’s no photoshopping involved (I did scale the images down, but otherwise, this is how they came out of the camera).

  2. Here is the 3-d model from thingiverse, which gives away the secret:
