Whenever I find some new geometric concept, I try to master it. (I then quickly lose interest.) :doh:

So, on to the next exploratory challenge....

The floret pattern is new to me (although it now makes perfect sense.)

What's really amazing (to me) is that this is only one of dozens of possible floret arrangements.

I dare not try to model all of the possibilities. So many variations, so little time....

Glad you liked it. Now, if I can only determine an application for it. :confused:
