Space-filling Fractal Sponge

Made By
Not For Sale

Product Description

This is a "fractal sponge" solid, based on the design on page 61 of the "Alt.Fractals" book. It's closely related to the Menger Sponge, but //this// version "tesselates", it perfectly tiles 3D space with units of a single size: the "proper" Menger sponge doesn't. 80mm.
