Geodesic Grid – Part 2

Where to start?

Well, the first thing we need to do is create an Icosahedron.  We need the vertices and the indices of the faces.  Finding the cartesian coordinates of the vertices is simple enough.  Once you’ve got the coordinates, you just need to use a little brain power to come up with the indices. (more…)

Geodesic Grid – Part 1

What is a Geodesic Grid?

Well, it is a shape made of hexagons and pentagons, like a Truncated Icosahedron.  However, the geodesic has as many faces as needed to make it as spherical as needed, like a Geodesic Dome.

What does it look like?

Something like this:
