Biaxial or tetra- toroid, (or poloidal) has 27 identical loops. (Edge centers of the tetrahedron, above right,

were used as snap points, (alignments), to 'mold' an individual loop, representitive of a poloidal loop, above right).

The red loop indicates corresponding views of one loop, (in poloidal and in tetrahedron mold above- right.)

The tetrahedron functioned as a mold in a 3d CAD program: each point or corner was used

in a consecutive snap operation while making a closed, quadratic, bezier curve, (or loop).

Another way to visualize: grab an "O" ring at two points and twist 90 degrees.

Another tetrahedral insight: twisting, bending or warping...

Is there a connection to the "hand rule"?,

(of electro maganetism, that is).

See a gallery with somewhat related patterns.

Searching Synergy ........ Free Exchange of Ideas

Enersearch was incorporated in 1980 but never materialized financially.  A  synergy of concepts were developed and are reflected in the pages of this series.  The synergy continues as a single handed effort of Bo Atkinson, in Maine, USA.
