Rolling Transport

In the realm of terrestrial transportation, the code abstracts the essence of the wheel from bode geometry, then extends a thorough re-conceptualization of it for purposes of guiding the design of a rolling artifact’s non-rotating components – as well as for its harmonious accommodation in cube-based abode architecture.

The Rolling Transport Gallery illustrates how code geometry is applied to dynamic transporters. For a detailed treatment of such, the PDF is the ticket. This page of introduction is divided into 5 sections, with underlined words and phrases indicating glossary entries.

The Bodal Wheel – 1

To find the wheel in code geometry, the bode is best viewed in its spherical manifestation, free of its geocentric context, and facing a triangular cluster directly. With its 3 spheres removed, the plane formed by the exposed layer of 7 spheres bisects same to form a hexagonal array of circles. Then, by engaging the plane’s structural basis, the circles are imbued with 6 spokes surrounding a central hub.

img_0045Although such a pattern characterizes any or all circles, a bigger picture entails the whole 13-sphere bode cluster which may be referred to as the greater bodal wheel. Nonetheless, for immediate purposes, essential wheel qualities and relationships may be abstracted from the central layer such as the notion of co-spinning circles around a frictionless center, and a line of motion joining such a pair.

Asymmetric Solutions – 2

Another key wheel attribute is revealed upon viewing the structure of the greater bodal wheel, then turning it to a direct edge-out perspective wherefrom it is plain to see that one side differs from the other. However, by rotating the structure about the axis spanning its opposing outer triangles, a square appears where the triangle was on one side and visa versa on the other side. By such dynamic, symmetry is chased.


Symmetry is attained by superimposing time events, with the necessary dynamic being rotation. Thus the bodal wheel possesses an intrinsic quality of asymmetric dynamism. Viewed in profile, the wheel’s oppositely oriented outer triangles suggest an alternating drive which can be expressed in many ways. An entirely different approach to attaining symmetry entails bisecting the wheel along its central plane.


One side is then rotated until it mirrors the other side – permanantly. Notice that by this  hexagonal shift the wheel’s dynamism is essentially neutralized.  But that is fine because,  although bode geometry still characterizes each side, together the wheel’s neutralized dynamism makes for a framework for constructs regarded as being at rest relative to the motion afforded by the rotating wheel, e.g., a transporter body.

The Transporter Template – 3

To put the neutralized wheel into practice, it is oriented edge-up and first viewed in profile. In this position, a set of lines parallel the direction of intended travel so that the bode pattern may be elongated in that direction without altering the structure angling away from it. By this pattern attribute so oriented, a transport template is conceptualized to guide design of rolling transporters’ non-rolling components.


In its totality, the transport template supplies an infinite potentiality of lines, planes, and polyhedra intrinsic to the pattern thus aligned. Another key template attribute is posed when viewed head on. Because each side’s pattern orientation terminates at the central plane to mirror the other, a transverse hexagonal expansion of rectilinear planes is introduced there to guide design of windshields, seating, axles, etc.

Elementary Rounding – 4

Another omnipresent attribute characterizing the transport template is found not only in its intrinsic spheres, but the circles sliced from equally intrinsic sectioning planes and the cylindrical forms enveloping them. A prime application of this quality is img_0041to round the hard angles of a transporter shell’s plane convergences by first centering spheres on its vertices. Cylinders then join those spheres along edges, and are melded by planes parallel to those of the framework. Concave creases are treated in any of a handful of ways.

Wheel Ports – 5

Hitherto, the bodal wheel has been treated as free and microcosmic. However, if regarded in the geocentric cuboda context, the wheel is deemed a macrocosmic one, and as such is applicable to the design of wheel-related constructs fixed to earth.


To house transporters in the cubebased abode architectural focus is on the macrocosmic wheel’s squares. After the wheel’s central plane is positioned to align with the CBA profile longitudinally, the squares are positioned latitudinally to guide the design of either appended ports or transporter slots.


In either approach, as the wheel’s central plane parallels the relatively rotated east/west planes of both celestial cubes, the circular fenestration already specified also expresses transporter accommodation.
