Built something nice? Let the other Geomag fans see what you've done.

Oloid delirium (Christmas decoration inside)

Let's play with Oloid ;-)

Take 5 Oloids and attach them one by one each time from the same side until you get a rosette.
It's a near miss. You have to cheat with the 5th one.

I made 2 variants.

Variant 1: the Christmas star (good timing isn't it?).
The branches of the star are made up of the vertical side of the oloid and the rotation takes place around the horizontal part of the oloid. What makes it disappear besides. We therefore no longer see any trace of a complete oloid in the final result. It is as if a double star shines in the center of the structure.
These are zooms on photos I took some time ago where this shape was not the main subject. Sorry for the poor quality :oops:

Variant 1 - front view (the blue chicken leg behind has nothing to do with our business. Nor the leopard cat toy)

20200808_224108.jpg
Variant 1 - view of the other side


Variant 2: the pentagonal Christmas flower (a little far fetched but hey it's for Christmas ;-)).
The figure is obtained by putting in the center the vertical part of each oloid and outside the horizontal parts which figure the petals of the flower.
There are 5 spheres on which the connection of the rods is not perfect due to the angle and the lack of space. The 5th petal is also missing 2 rods.
unlike variant 1, we can clearly distinguish the oloids inside the final resulting shape. Let's play with color placement to make it more flower-like :D

With a different color scheme. It's a flower after all! ;-)

Variant 2 - First colored pattern

20201202_183735.jpg
Variant 2 - Second colored pattern

Variant 2 - Second colored pattern with a slightly different angle. Look how the angle is important regarding what you want to show or not in the middle of the flower (compared to the previous photo)

By widening the outer part of the petals I got something different. It looks like a 5 leaf clover don't you think?

Variant 2a - 5 leaf clover

However there is no longer any full oloid visible in this shape.

There is still a little resemblance


Pushing these evolutions a little further, led me to the construction of a flower with its stem.

Ok, I dug in the middle taking out the upper layer of 11 rods to give it a more 3D shape and changed the color scheme ;-)
Here we are with variant 2b:

20201203_153515.jpg
Variant 2b - Center is deeper than variant 2a

20201203_161421.jpg
Variant 2b - Center is deeper than variant 2a

Variant 2b - Front view, new color scheme

Ok let's go on with Oloids!
Peter suggested to double scale the proportions of one oloid as an exercise. Here it is!

Now let's put a fragment of the other side in each pentagonal bipyramid and get a 'Yin and yang' Oloid ;)

On a suggestion from Peter in 'the Oloid' thread: long size oloid

20201205_195651.jpg
Scale-1 Oloid - Normal size

I added the howto in the 'Oloid howto' thread ;-)

Let's go further.
What about the twisted Oloid? ;-)

20201205_162512.jpg
Could it be possible to twist that thing?

I cheated a bit, but hey! that's my secret ;-)

So Peter, what do you think of this one?
