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:

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...
