 You can see how the colored struts would have been perpendicular to the corresponding colored planes that I had mentioned: --- On Mon, 9/13/04, Michael Donovan wrote: From: Michael Donovan Subject: Re: [Polytopia] Having Some Code Fun in TilingTo: Polytopia@yahoogroups.comDate: Monday, September 13, 2004, 12:25 PM Wonderful image, But the primary colors fit in another way, those four planes are combinations of the three primary.  Looks like one of Robert Webbs animations from Stella ----- Original Message ----- From: Alan Michelson Sent: Monday, September 13, 2004 2:57 PM Subject: Re: [Polytopia] Having Some Code Fun in Tiling rybo6 wrote: By the way, if you go to that web page, notice the tetrahedron at http://www.codefun.com/Images/Geometry/DodecTile/image004.jpg Each vertice of the tetrahedron has a color that matches its opposite face. This is because if you were to truncate each vertice, you will get a plane that is parallel to and therefore matches its opposite face. You can see this in You could also see the red, yellow, green, blue color-coded planes inhttp://www.superliminal.com/geometry/infinite/stereo/The upper picture has truncated tetrahedra.The lower picture has truncated octahedra.These were built using Polydron. The colored hexagons are oriented according to the corresponding tetrahedron planes.You can see how this applies to the coloring problem in http://www.codefun.com/Images/Geometry/DodecTile/image006.jpg

or in this case, the possible [transfer] points from the combinations of intersecting [subway] lines.
