Like much of America, we’ve had a lot of snow lately, with more on the way. Making the piece above helped me unwind after a very stressful drive to the store and back on snow- and ice-covered roads. The car went skidding all over the place a few times, but I did make the trip without actually running into anything. I’m not going out again until the melt arrives.
I created this polyhedral compound by faceting a great rhombicosidodecahedron, using Stella 4d. You can try this program for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
We’re in a global pandemic, without competent national leadership, and American society is tearing itself apart. However, at least you get to see this cute picture my wife took of Hexagon the Cat hiding in a blanket, right?
I made this using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, a program you can try for free at this website. It shows Hexagon the Cat riding in circles on the twenty hexagonal faces of a rotating truncated icosahedron. We don’t know of a cat named Pentagon, so I hid the twelve pentagonal faces.
“Error Code M7353-5101” apparently means “We stopped playing Star Trek for you because your cat is sitting on the keyboard.” Hexagon strikes again!
No other cats are allowed to touch Hexagon’s cat castle, and that’s all there is to it.
