This concept is phenomenal. I don't have an engineering background but its obvious Leo does. By the looks of the frame and the time he has spent.....I'd be willing to bet his shock mount doesn't fail. I want to build one---
"The biggest challenge was that I needed to reinvent the 3D modelling of the frame. I needed to learn several new CAD programs in order to do this. Nobody is making this kind of product so the tools in CAD programs are not very ideal to multi-piece-variable-wall-thickness-tubular-shell design. Now I can control the wall thickness throughout the model and we can create extraordinary structures that are not possible with conventional manufacturing methods."
