The Construction of a Zome Model of a 240Atom Fullerene Molecule, In Seven Pictures
You can buy your own Zome at http://www.zometool.com.
A Zome Torus, Before and After Adding Dodecahedra, As a Model for a Pulsar’s Accretion Disk and Radiation Jets
I’ve been using Zometools, available at http://www.zometool.com, to build interesting geometrical shapes since long before I started this blog. I recently found this: a 2011 photograph of myself, holding a twisting Zome torus. While I don’t remember who was holding the … Continue reading

A Chiral Solution to the Zome Cryptocube Puzzle
This is my second solution to the Zome Cryptocube puzzle. In this puzzle, you start with a black cube, build a white, symmetrical, aetheticallypleasing geometrical structure which incorporates it, and then, finally, remove the cube. In addition, I added a … Continue reading
