I have always been fascinated with the properties of polyhedra, and in the past have produced polyhedral works in origami and cast bronze. The rapid prototyping services provided by Shapeways open a new way to explore the aesthetic possibilities of geometric figures given physicality. I use Google SketchUp to build my models and Blender to convert them to stereolithographic models suitable for printing.
