Geodesic Gold Weave by TaffGoch Geodesic Gold Weave by TaffGoch
Cross-eye stereo

Not a single continuous "strand," but six quadruply-wound "loops"

Template for weaving is a geodesic sphere Class III subdivision of an icosahedron Frequency 10v{4,6}

Modeled in Google SketchUp
Rendered in Kerkythea

Are the six loops all identical with one another?

By applying "mirror" symmetries, in addition to the "rotational" symmetries, allowed me to model only 120th of the sphere.

This is a characteristic of ALL geodesic (icosahedron-based) constructions.

It would be interesting to see this 120th portion, this elemental building block.

Would it be alright if I reposted some of your images? I would give credit and a link, of course.

Hollister, I've produced an image that depicts typical geodesic symmetry

To be honest, I don't see the added benefit of reposting someone else's images.

Am I missing something?

I belong to a group of polyhedra enthusiasts. I'd like to send them some of your images.

Instead of attaching an image I could link to the page. But a few have complained the D.A. ads choke their browser.

Doh! :doh: Right! You don't want to re-post, here at dA. You want to share elsewhere.

Such use is fine by me. That's one reason they're posted here.

On the internet, as a general rule, attribution should be an expected courtesy. Unfortunately, much of the internet is an unethical wasteland. Attribution is greatly appreciated.

Actually, you don't even have to model 1/6th of the sphere. There are symmetries within each of the six loops, as well, so radially-copying a unique loop "section" is performed, to complete one full loop.

I only had to model 1/60th of the entire sphere geometry. The rest can all be attributed to radial copying.

Indeed, they are equal, in length and shape.

Using radial symmetries (inherent to geodesic tessellations) makes it easy to rotate copies of a loop into the other 5 positions. Modeling effort is, therefore, 1/6th of the apparent complexity.

Sketchup? damn...

Yep, SketchUp! :)

I've made this SketchUp model available to anyone who wants to examine it (or play around with their own rendering ideas)
