Appendix B: 3D Visualization
The following figures are meant to accompany the “In Real Life” section of Hack 42, “Enter the Third Dimension.”
Figure B-1: A 3D checkerboard of gray and white cubes
Figure B-2: A black point in the center of a white cube
Figure B-3: Eight lines extending from the center point to the vertices subdivide the cube into six pyramids.
Figure B-4: One of the pyramids in the white cube becomes gray.
Figure B-5: The gray pyramid in the white cube joins up with a neighboring gray cube.
Figure B-6: A central gray cube joined with six neighboring gray pyramids becomes a rhombic dodecahedron.
Figure B-7: Two adjoining rhombic dodecahedra
Figure B-8: All cubes are now transformed into rhombic dodecahedra, filling space as ...
