H-kimura uploaded this “mysterious wood joint” noting, “This type of joint is used in a gate of OOSAKA castle in Japan.”  I love this design for being a modern version of an ancient design.  I also like it because I’m hoping that it will lead to more kinds of printable connectors beyond just spans and connectors.  TeamTeamUSA provided a comment to this thing with a link to a truly excellent resource describing some of additional ancient Japanese building methods.
