Assembly of triangulated structure


I am working on a project and I want to laser-cut a 1:10 model of the structure.

I have ran into a problem though.

Attached below is a picture of my structure

It is a roofstructure made of triangles. This, in itself, is pretty easy to fabricate on the lasercutter. BUT.

When I am going to assemble my model, I need some internal structure to hold everything together.
I was thinking about a “Waffle”-like structure to hold it together, like the one I made from curves below.

But when that structure itself is lasercut, the pieces will have a width of around 2-3 mm, which will ruin the structure of the triangles themselves. Does any of you grasshopper “gods” have some suggestions for another internal structure of my assembly?

NOTE: This structure does not have to be pretty on the inside, as long as it can be fabricated to 2d surfaces that can be laser cut. Thank you for your time.

Hey Joseph,

that is my own thread haha, you gave me the tools to nest the project into triangles and number them, and thank you for that.

Now I am trying to figure out how to laser cut and assemble the structure. The triangles themselves, are cut in planar, but, they will be impossible to piece together just with the triangles. Therefor I am trying to create and “tree structure” on the inside of the triangles.

I have been trying to come up with a waffle structure to laser cut and assmble my triangles onto that, BUT, the thickness of the material makes this approach obsolete.
