Creative Monday

Decided at the last minute to skip my painting class in the evening. Shouldn’t be a problem as I’m one class ahead, it might even be better now that I’ll be on the same page with everyone else again.

I had a bit of fun with 3D printing today. I downloaded, edited, and then printed some connectors to construct a huge buckyball using simple toothpicks, it’s the biggest one I’ve ever made. I probably started my fascination for buckyballs since I was a kid trying to draw a soccer ball, it seemed amazing to me that flat pentagons and hexagons can be joined together to form a 3D sphere. It actually still amazes me now.
