Opensourced! Been meaning to do this for a while and wish I had from the get go, but I've finally opensourced a bunch of code, including: MagicTile: www.gravitation3d.com/magictile MagicCube5D: www.gravitation3d.com/mc5d Magic120Cell: www.gravitation3d.com/magic120cell Gravitation3D: www.gravitation3d.com It is all on GitHub here: https://github.com/roice3 I've included one image from each of the programs below. I hope some folks might find the code useful, and maybe even adapt it for new creative things...
