So you think your coffee is strong? Wait until you have tried your coffee cup!
"A Honeycomb core is an array of hollow columns made of sheet material which is used to separate the two facings of a sandwich structure".
So why not make one of Coffee Cups and enter the Coffee Cup Challenge?
This I'ble will show you how to make a honeycomb panel as a building block for your future projects. If you like it, don't forget to vote for me!
Where I live, paper cups are somewhat rare, so I have merely made a beam and tested it.
My project has ended by testing this beam. If you want to take it to the next level or if you have an awesome idea, feel free to use this information and even post it in the Coffee Cup Challenge as well (some credits would be nice though).
Step 1: What do you need?
It's a great misconception that you need fancy materials to fabricate composite materials. Nature is full of extraordinary examples.
You will need:
* 45 coffee cups
* two triplex strips of 90 x 20 cm (thickness 2 mm).
The dimension of the strip was more or less determined by the fact that I could only get hold of 45 cups (3 rows of 15 cups).
Step 2: How it's made.
1. Apply glue to one side of the first strip (preferably with a brush)
2. Place the cups in an alternating pattern.
3. Apply glue to the second strip and place it on top of the cup.
4. Add lots of weight.
