Threebolites (smooth) by Chaim Goodman-Strauss

This is a smooth version of the threebolite tiles. The construction is based on inflations of the Schwarz surface and an underlying body centered lattice, and generalizes to all dimensions greater than one. For fuller description, see Goodman-Strauss' papers.

How to make it: Drafted and ray-traced in SoftImage.
