Guess the model is the tradisional 3 plane model, where the structural veaknes of cirtain structural members will also be build into the model ?
The knees and bolts placing the third plane 90 geg. onto one of the other planes will still be there, the highrise building will carry all the foults from the original model ?
True much of what we se every day is locked within the tradisional 3 plane structures xnd xyz calculations work perfect with this model, but is the 3 planes realy proving so perfect as we think, and even we can manipulate the 3 planes ,isn't this based on our expertations about the endresult being able to be sliced into the tradisional 3 plane projections tighing us up in vertical walls , and horisontal floors that all carry one veak point in the knee attachment onto the vertical structural members ; a connection that is the veakest you can emagine.
Now as you know I promote a 2 plane construction idear, but my main argument is, that if you start with a 3 plane model just as how things allway's been done, you will end up in 3 planes nomatter what you do, and the veak points will be the same.
