Nylander Weave Analysis by TaffGoch Nylander Weave Analysis by TaffGoch
Analysis of the rotational symmetry of one of Paul Nylander's woven geodesic spheres: [link]

Only four different components are required -- rotationally replicated to populate the "surface" of the underlying geodesic sphere (symmetry template is a class-II, 4v, icosahedron geodesic tessellation)

Deviants should visit Paul's website, to see even more: [link]

Beautiful work, Paul !

Thanks Taff. I like your colorization. I thought about coloring the rings myself, but my method would have made it difficult. As you know, large geodesic domes cannot be composed entirely of exactly regular polygons, so I had to distort the hexagons slightly using linear interpolation.
