TRhis drawing of yours is a poor example. You may think it looks "cool". But it is far off from any structural superiority that you speak of. What is that floor? It is so wasteful. The p.s.f for a residential building is about 40psf, what is that? 1000? hahaha
Are those walls braced? The fact that all of your members are the same size tells me you know nothing of engineering. How are these members connected?
"but where Geostatic structures often requier expensive special fittings" - No, not expensive at all. Repetitios connections bring down costs. If your structure has no connections, then is it produced on site? How?
"everything in a 3D-H structure are made from the sheet material" - so how is this sheet metal fastened?
"3D-H would have offered this but beside an option to make the floors and walls in one with that" - then wouldn't that be a solid load bearing construction? might as well use a stone wall. Lets see one of your shitty drawings illustrate this.
"Observers throughout recorded history have marveled at the hexagonal pattern of the honeybee's elaborate storage system. More than 2,000 years ago, Greek scholars commented on how bees apparently possess "a certain geometrical forethought" in achieving just the right type of enclosure to hold honey efficiently. In the 19th century, Charles Darwin described the honeycomb as a masterpiece of engineering that is "absolutely perfect in economising labour and wax.""
You are not revolutionary at all.
