|not as easy as it looks! I had to dig up some trig and algebra from the High School years, including cartesian coordinates. First order of business was to take a cube and figure out how to use boolean cubes to slice off the corners to make a hexagon. |
Next, with my trusty TI 55 calculator, had to cuss a bit figuring that it was calculating in radians instead of degrees (damn, I was never good at radians, although I am known to think in metric units on occasion) .
Next I had to plot the shapes in a stepped environment, but the reflection and specularity made them look as though they were merged, so I had to play around with those settings a bit and insert the different materials to give the human eye the suggestion of a "stepped look" instead of confusing reflections.
Thanks to for her suggestion that it looks like Q-bert.
