Abstract: Auxetic metamaterials have generated a great deal of interest in recent years. In this letter, a novel approach which can be used to produce such auxetic metamaterials is presented. This method involves the introduction of patterned slit perforations within a sheet/block of material in order to create systems which resemble a large variety of auxetic systems ranging from rotating units to chiral honeycombs. These perforated systems have also been shown to have the potential to exhibit giant negative Poisson's ratios
