Wow. Is it really a tiling of the sphere, or mapped texture?

Oh, would be cool if it was, but its just mapped on. This guy (lady??) has some really wild stuff --> [link]

Turns out he's a he. Wild indeed. Unfortunately the links to his include files are broken. One was about Penrose tiling. Some of his pics are grids like those I made, only he used isosurfaces. My fave looks sorta like a seashell. I've picked up a few real shells at the beach, and I've promised myself I'll model them one of these days. The sections in one direction are (logarithmic?) spirals, in the other direction may be ellipses.

Yes, I went back to that site and saw that he's a he - it figures. And yes, some of his stuff reminded me of your grid stuff. Anyway, if you go to the Japanese pages, the INCLUDE files are there. There's a program called Biowin for POV-Ray, I think it makes shells etc. :)
