JMM and an Update

This post is just a quick update on the 3D printing project (with a few pictures from JMM, the Joint Mathematics Meetings) and some plans for the future!

At this past JMM in Atlanta, Georgia, I gave an invited talk at the session entitled “MAA Invited Paper Session on Technical Tools for Mathematical 3D Printing.” Before then, I was able to print out a few different objects: A book embedding of K5, the 3×3 and 4×4 Rook’s graph, a few different configurations of the Shrikhande graph, and a failed version of the Perko pair isotopy on pegs for the praxinoscope. Here are some pictures!

JMM was (as always) such an amazing time, and I’m happy to say I’m continuing this project through my last semester at JMU! My plans moving forward are to fix the Perko Pair, and create a large book embedding that actually looks like a book, as a gift to the JMU math department in appreciation of everything they’ve done for me.

Thanks for reading,

Jonathan Gerhard
