Someone on another forum mentioned the timeless paper cutting art form and I realized that must have been the inspiration for inventing metal lath. Your lister, Per Corell designs welded diamond truss work he calls honeycomb. In the URL below I ponder: why not instead, further expand on expanded metal as mass production approach to raising 3D advantages. Instead of custom curve cutting, use the easier, mass production advantage of stamping out more iterations of expanded lath, as an additive building method, (contrasting the subtractive cut out systems).

....Just tossing up another idea into the public domain.... - Bo
