Since 1981 I've lived near the Pacific coast of North America.

In 1997 I started using PoV-Ray to make mathematical abstractions.
Lately I've been doing my stuff mostly in Python.

In 2008 or 2009 I saw the Shapeways booth at a Maker Faire.

Each of my models comes from a Python program that builds a mesh in three formats simultaneously: in Visual Python (so I can move around for a better look), as a .POV file (for a permanent image), and in .OBJ (to send to Shapeways).

I have ideas for numerous designs based on uniform polychora (4-dimensional polytopes), but I lack the technique to generate the copies (up to 14400!) of a unit cell and tie them together properly.
