Ya live and ya learn

Wow! Thanks! I guess I just sorta stayed focused on one thing and never got out of the box.

Thanks for pointing that out,

Other shapes

Thank you Guy, Yes, I had considered other shapes, although the main reason for my choice of icosahedra only was based on its attribute of having only equilateral triangles as its faces. The surface design has always been my inspiration. By mapping a triangular grid across the surface, the possibili...

Geometric Christmas Ornaments

I just thought I'd let you all know I took a passion of mine and monetized it, and I've been actually making a few sales with it. They're very simple icosahedral templates really, but the patterns I designed across their faces have some M.C. Escher-like appeal to them, and the potential to create ot...

these pictures--what?

I'm kinda slow.

How did you use Stella to create these images? Where are the polyhedra in some of them? What exactly is going on here?

Sorry we can't all possess the genius you seem to exhibit.

My New Toy

Thanks Ulrich - For distorting the truth - :lol: I am now able to attempt to light my lamp from within. I placed eight little glowing balls inside the structure and have been experimenting with the intensity and the image gels. Picture this hanging on a door at Christmas-time, perhaps a rope-light m...

Bravo Squeaky! Bravissimo!

Encore! Encore! Encore!

Where do you show your work? Is it for sale? What kinds of oohs and ahhs have other people responded with?

41.81 degrees- How Magical Is That?

I marvel at the hidden enigma that keeps this thing from being precisely symmetrical. I know some mathematicians could have some heated arguments over it until they all settled on some obscure postulate that puts it in its proper place. I wonder why something like this can happen. Try it for yoursel...

How About Signatures?

Would it be pushing it to ask about forum signatures and where and when they appear in your posts?


Ah! Nevermind.

(I was assuming prior posts would be affected as well.)

But when I try this I get a shape that doesn't close Rob. This has me really curious. Can you somehow go the next step and make it close? Can you "make them "flex into place?" After all, my favorite quote of all time comes into play here. It was Charles Eames, the famous chair designer who said: "E...

OH! Isn't that BEAUTIFUL?

My model, if you were to try it yourself with eight icosahedra, is connected by the faces. In fact, in my Bryce 5, I was trying to do the math to rotate and position them correctly, and have only gotten a little ways along. I was hoping that once I oriented the first one properly, I could use the "m...

I Just Can't Cut It!

I found the model I want to work with in the "More Stewart Toroids" folder. It's called the Icosahedra 8 (ring). --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http://positive180.com/tempstuff/icosa8ring.png The problem is that I want to reposition this model so th...

Hi! I'm Rex Everyhting!

I'm new here and I had a question, accompanied by images, but it turns out the forum is set up to disallow URLs until after ypou have at least one post, so here's the requisite one post.

Hi everybody!
