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

The Compound of Five Cubes, Rendered in Five Colors of Zome
Ordinarily, with Zometools, the compound of five cubes is an allblue model. However, I wanted to build one in which each cube is a different color, so I made a special request to the Zometool Corporation (their website: http://www.zometool.com) for … 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
