631: (81/365) Four Cubes

Posted by wonko on March 22, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Sometimes a modular is deceptively complex, this 6-part modular from David Mitchell is no exception: Four cubes, interwoven in evil ways has done my head in for days now, I simply could not (1) imagine the shape it was going to end up; and (2) make the modules connect in ways that made sense.

Posted by wonko on October 24, 2013 in geometry |

Browsing an amazing book by David Mitchell called “Paper Crystals”, I spotted an interesting modular ball based on pentagons tiled with triangles named Electra. Coupled with the original model was a suggestion that it was possible to make a 60 module version consisting of pentagons surrounded by squares separated by triangles.
