PXL illustrations Exhibit

I have pointed out that the idea for Pneumatic Xtal Lattice began in the late 60's. During the 50 years since, I have made several generations of prototypes, which proved very successful. Over the last 20 years, I have also made many illustrations of structures made with this technique. I recently found a large collection of these illustrations, on a flash drive, and make them available here, for those making new pictures for the PXL photo contest.

Notes on this estimate the structure weighs about 109 pounds and displaces 10 tons

236 lb., floats 17 tons
