Dodecahedron with Mandalas

Dodecahedron with Mandalas

This rotating image took three different programs to create. First, I made the mandala (seen in the previous post) using Geometer’s Sketchpad. Next, I used MS-Paint to complete the colorization of it. Finally, I used Stella 4d (see http://www.software3d.com/stella.php if you’d like to try or buy it) to put this mandala on each face of a dodecahedron, and then create the rotating .gif you see here.

I find both Stella 4d and Geometer’s Sketchpad to be indispensable tools for mathematical investigations and the creation of geometrical art, and highly recommend both programs.
