Fig. 4

Example with a rotational degree-of-freedom (DOF). a A rotational freedom space and, b its constraint space of intersecting planes can be used, c, d, to synthesize individual cells that individually achieve the desired rotation so, e, an aperiodic directionally compliant metamaterial (DCM) with, f intersecting blade elements can be generated to achieve, gi, the desired rotation for a variety of bulk shapes (colors in gi are defined in Fig. 3b)
