More Fun Collaborations

"a Waterman Polyhedron"
(by K. Urner using Jython)

A lot of you have heard me lecture about Watermans (my coin, named for Steve): convex hulls with all IVM vertices = CCP centers, and of maximal sphericity per each maximal radial distance.

The above rendering uses Jython (and POV-Ray), an implementation of Python in Java, meaning I was able to import, and use from within Jython, a convex hull finding Java class.
