Truncated Cubic Magrid

11 08 2009

I’ve been working on shrinking down the design of the superconducting magrid to fit inside the smaller chamber. I’ve been running into difficulty finding enough room to pass the 4.2 mm thick superconducting cable from coil to coil.

Finding myself stuck, I’m toying with the idea of moving to a truncated cube design to simplify things. The dodecahedral design is exciting, but not at the expense of building a working superconducting magrid. I made a new branch in the repo to try it out. Got the basic shape created:
