A node is part of a 3D-weavement where
3 mutually perpendicular elements
meet and pass each other.
The 3 videos in
in the case of the weavement there shown
there are 16 nodes per fabric in each stack,
making a total of 64 nodes for that weavement.
Det. -A shows 2 such nodes.
They are opposite-handed & distinct.
The node on the left is left-handed,
the node on the right is right-handed.
These nodes are deemed to be left- or right- handed
because they can be seen as
an incipient left- or right- handed twist respectively,
as illustrated in the auxiliary view
shown above each node.
Det. -B. shows each node sectioned out
in a perfect cube-cut centered about it.
Det. -C. shows that This allows for
left-handed nodes to be represented by
yellow cubes that can additionally be designated by “L”,
right-handed nodes to be represented by
blue cubes that can additionally be designated by “R”,
unspecified nodes to be represented by
grey cubes that can additionally be designated by “U”.
This allows for a weavement to be
in terms of its constituent nodes.
Det. -B in
shows an III-weavement composed of (3) I-stacks.
In an III-weavement all the constituent nodes are identically-handed.
Since nodes are either left-handed or right-handed,
the III-weavement will be constituted of
either left-handed nodes, and is then called the IIIL-weavement,
as shown in Det. -D,
or right-handed nodes, and is then called the IIIR-weavement,
as shown in Det. -E.
When there is no clear advantage of
one-weavement over the other,
the IIIL-weavement should be the default choice,
for the sake of common practice.
