Pulsating Cuboctahedron, Featuring Enneagrammic Mandalas


Pulsating Cuboctahedron, Featuring Enneagrammic Mandalas

The enneagramic mandalas on the square faces of this cuboctahedron are from the last post, with inverted-color, smaller versions of the same image on the triangular faces. These mandalas were created using Geometer’s Sketchpad and MS-Paint. Projecting them onto the faces of the cuboctahedron, and then creating this rotating, pulsating .gif image, however, took a third program: Stella 4d, which you can buy, or try for free, at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
