My Bio
If you can't tell, already, I'm enamored of geodesic constructs.

It is my hope that these deviations will inspire others.

Physicist/geometer,

Are there any books that explain in detail the origins of this and how to classify it? If yes, can you recommend it?

When you say "this," to what are you referring. I have a lot of different items in my gallery on my homepage/profile.

dear TG, u kindly rendered a hexagon planet for me on geodesic help group for me recently, please would you like to help with our album artwork by supplying hi res images/variations, as outlined in my post. happy to credit you and donate modestly, it's just a small release. but your findings would make it huge. respect is due and thanks, best wishes, colundi everyOne
Say, by any chance did you notice this study I did on SU and the results of saving in different styles, or is this common knowledge?

Don,

I had not seen your study, but I do, personally, take full advantage of components (as opposed to groups,) because of the file-size savings.

It should be common knowledge, since it's in the "SketchUp Users Guide," but many don't read it (or, even, know about it.)

-Taff
Well the point was about components but also what view style you save your work in.

Yup, I didn't know about it. Thanks :)
Say, do you use this www.instructables.com/id/Const… geodesic sphere for your spheres? It gripes me out that it isn't made of regular shapes.
