4x5 Heptagonal Dandelion 3D Model
Grown in the same garden as it’s 2nd level cousins the hydrangea and the daisy, this model surpassed both of them. It has 5 levels of expansion (the planar base only has 4 levels). The result is some surprisingly rapid growth… More like a spindly weed than an elegant flower, still, it has its own peculiar charm!
The affine heptagons obviously become very long and thin after only 5 levels of expansion, but it starts out with the same basis as the other models.
This model is best viewed by rotating it around the origin instead of its center of mass. It’s much more interresting to see it from up close near the center of the shape between the individual hyperboloids or else zoomed back far enough to see the whole “flower”.
I have manually positioned it so the center of rotation is reasonably close to the origin, but If anyone knows of a setting to let me set it exactly to the origin, please post a comment.
