Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Sliceform modelling is a technique which lies happily on the border between art and mathematics. The models are made from intersecting sets of parallel planes which which slot together in a clever way to generate intersecting three-dimensional surfaces. In the "fully-open" position the planes are at right angles and the surfaces correctly defined, but all the models fold flat in two different ways, making them convenient to store until they are needed next time. When "popped-up," the play of light and shade on the planes creates objects of great beauty. This book includes a varied selection of sliceform models to cut out and make, and also a full explanation of how they were produced.

I had hoped for some detailed explanations, help, and tips on creating my own sliceforms and/or some more complex models than what I could find on the web.
What the book contains is:
- One page of "What Are Sliceforms?" which presumably you already know if you're looking to buy this book
- One page of instructions on how to cut out and make the models in the book
- Three very general pages on creating your own sliceforms
- Eight printed simple models to cut out (they aren't scored, by the way, so you can punch them out)and assemble, some of which are the same or very similar to ones already available for free with a little Internet searching.
Very light on details and explanations, and only very small photos of the assembled models.
Like I said, this is somewhat my fault though as I neglected to notice that the "book" (more of a pamphlet, really) only has 36 pages total.
I think this would be a fun little project for kids or for those who just want to create some simple models for the first time. But rather disappointing and not terribly useful for anyone who already knows what sliceforms are or if you've already built a couple of models.
