Please vote, on or before Tuesday, if you oppose Trump and Trumpism.

I used three programs to make this: Stella 4d, Geometer’s Sketchpad, and MS-Paint. You can try Stella for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

Another Octagon-Tessellation

I’ve lost count of how many tessellations of octagons have appeared here. This might be the fifth one.

Cluster of 33 Icosidodecahedra

There’s one icosidodecahedron at the center of this cluster, with more icosidodecahedra attached to each of the central figure’s 32 faces. In the first version, the coloring is simply based as the number of sides for each face.

In the next picture, the coloring is by face-type (position in the overall cluster).

The last image shown here has the cluster in “rainbow color mode.”

I used Stella 4d to make these — a program you may try for free right here.

Tessellation of Regular Pentagons and Tetraconcave Octagons


I saw a tessellation similar to this on Facebook, and used Geometer’s Sketchpad and MS-Paint to re-create it with colors of my own choosing.
