Nested Platonics cutaway using ZomeTool

Another example of using Zometool components to make the models in SGDS.

This is another image from the backlog of photos of how Zometool is a great complement to, and ideal model building system for the designs in Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook. This image is a cutaway – mostly because I ran out of parts for this elaborate model πŸ™‚ static version of this animation of the Nested Platonics Recursion, which is, as far as I know, the tightest packing of a recursive nest of the five Platonic Solids.

“Chrome Zome” jewelry still available!

Zometool Jewelry β€” featuring elegant chrome-plated Zome hubs β€” is STILL available … and ONLY here. A great Valentine’s Day gift idea! Nancy (our resident jeweler) can make these earrings with the bottom (Swarovski 6mm) crystal in a variety of colors in addition to the pink (rose) and jet black varieties shown here, including clear, aqua, blue, light blue, midnight blue, teal, green, purple, amethyst purple, and other colors and variations. Each earring features the unique Zometool hub (12 pentagonal holes, 20 triangular holes and 30 golden rectangle holes) with a metallic chrome finish.

Here is a neat video of six rotations of a transparent tesseract. A tesseract (a.k.a. hypercube) is a 4-dimensional cube. I like to imagine that a 4-dimensional object casts a 3-dimensional shadow, just as a 3-dimensional object casts a 2-dimensional shadow. It’s still a bit boggling to grok, as our belief system only encompasses 3-dimensional dreams, so stretching our mental hologram to a 4-dimensional is usually met with resistance and confusion; how could we have another experience with such a finite premise! πŸ™‚

Speaking of backlogs, I have a goodly number of cool links to online videos, articles and more; so I ask for your patience, please. I’ll have lots more in the February edition. I’ve caught up on other projects this month. LOTS of great updates in store! πŸ™‚
