Cylinder Intersections

In the following galleries you find models, representing the space which is used by several intersecting cylinders.


All cylinders are the same diameter. In the first gallery, they were put on the faces of uniform polyhedra or their duals, in the second one, Johnson Polyhedra were the basis. After that, the convex cores were created. This was easily done with Robert Webb's superb software Stella 4D. By a click on a thumbnail, you get a bigger image. Furthermore you can watch a vrml-model, which can be seen with a player plug in (e.g. Cortona). You may download the stel-files too. The naming of the models gives the number of the cylinders and the origin uniform polyhedron ("d" means dual, "v" means vertex).

Have fun!
