An exploration of the ruled surface:

I first experimented with how altering different components of the hyperboloid, for example the number of struts, the location of the joints, and the number of joints, affects the shape of the hyperboloid. This lead me to looking at intersecting hyperboloids, and containing them within other structures. The images above show the final product of these experiments involving a total of 9 hyperboloids.
