A New Ellipse or Math Porcelain Service
AbstractEgglipse was first explored by Maxwell, but Descartes discovered a way to modify the pins-and-string construction for ellipses to produce more egg-shaped curves. There are no examples of serious scientific and practical applications of Three-foci ellipses until now. This situation can be changed if porcelain and ellipses are combined. In the introduced concept of the egg-ellipse, unexplored points are observed. The new Three-foci ellipse with an equilateral triangle, a square, and a circle as “foci” are presented for this application and can be transformed by animation. The new elliptic-hyperbolic oval is presented. The other two similar curves, hyperbola and parabola, can be also used to create new porcelain designs. Curves of the order of 3, 4, 5, etc. are interesting for porcelain decoration. An idea of combining of 3D printer and 2D colour printer in the form of 2.5D Printer for porcelain production and painting is introduced and listings functions in Mathcad are provided. View Full-Text
