Pacific Ring Weave


Here are machines you can buy to cut tires:

Sidewall remover only $4100 :slight_smile:


First part of this video shows the sidewall cutter in use.



Ring weave dictionary: “woven sheet”

A flat ; 2 dimensional sheet like object could be called a woven sheet.


Ring weave dictionary: “quad”

The basic unit of this type of weaving seems to the four tires linked together.
I would like to call the four tires linked together a quad.

The belts of his one is made of tires that the sidewalls were removed, but he belts were not cut.


Ring weave dictionary: “quad center”

The center of a quad could be called a quad center.

The number of the quad centers could be used to determine a size of a woven sheet.



Ring Weave dictionary: “quad centers in a woven sheet”

It is possible to observe quad centers in a woven sheet:



Ring weave dictionary: “holes”

It is also possible to observe holes in is a woven sheet. I would like to call them holes.



Quad centers:




Ring weave dictionary: " woven tube" or just “tube”

A sheet can be woven closed to form a tube.



What would be the smallest diameter tube, practically woven, expressed in the

I noticed on Gerd’s original site he had 3 different weaving types: Type H, L and D.

Unfortunately the pictures have been taken down. I wonder if one of them would eliminate the holes in the weave. The 3d cubes that were posted somewhere had no holes, but I’m not sure if that same weave works as a larger mat.


Yes, I think that is correct. Gerd mentioned to modify the weaving to achieve no hole sheet.
I think it is possible, and I am planning to figure that out too. I am just too happy with what
I got, that I did not explore other type of weaving yet.

Coboy Kim Cowdroy did make computer image of woven sheet with no holes.


In real life structure it is possible to weave a closed tube out of a sheet.
On sketchup computer images that is more difficult. The computer image
has to be started as a tube. Weaving tubes has the option to start weaving
a tube, or to weave a sheet and weave it shut into a tube.
