Abstract: This report presents the design, development and eventual 3D manufacture of a reconfigurable solid structure based on a geodesic design model. Unlike a standard solid structure, a reconfigurable structure possesses more than 1 stable position or is malleable enough to be handled. These qualities allow for the structure to be further manipulated after the initial manufacturing process, creating new areas of application. Furthermore, these qualities allow for a 3D modification to an initial 2D design model. This report considers these qualities and proposes a design that is not only stable but is also able to be 3D printed as a whole, and without additional assembly. In particular, a geodesic structure that allows for a 3D change to a model, by relying on a material malleable quality, and a force being applied to it that results in structural buckling. This report will also explore the different design models available such as a tessellation designs and how they may be incorporated and implemented in the reconfigurable structure.
