A flower

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

A flower

At the end of my oloid delirium I got a sort of 5 leaf clover based on 5 oloids arranged in a circle.
When you look closely at the center you notice a pentagon shape. As it is made up of the 5 oloids, it is slightly irregular (because the 5 oloids do not fit perfectly) and slightly larger than a standard pentagon of 5 rods.
I decided to get rid of the oloids and all the heavy lower part of my 5 leaf clover and start over from a standard 5 rod pentagon. The pattern is almost identical and the overall result is thinner.
And since it is built on a standard 5 rod pentagon, it can be hung up on a pentagonal tubular frame ;)

Oloid 5 leaf clover on the left side. New stripped-down flower on the right:

You can see from the photo below that the structure of the flower is thinner than that of the oloid clover:

And now the flower alone:

Of course I had to add a counterweight (you can see at the bottom of the stem) to counterbalance the weight of the flower and make everything stable.

New color scheme. Let's go simple. More Daisy-like :D

First time in a while that a completely new shape has been discovered/invented, compliments Eric!
