I am working on generating even more beautiful pictures based on E8 using POVray. We’ll see how that goes, I might even get POVray anaglyphs out of it!
I’ve been tweeking the code, fixing bugs, typos, etc.
- Previously, I had added in the upper right corner of the control pannel the ability to select the triality rotation matrices (+/-T, T12).
- There is a new description of the “construction patterns” which is corrected and simpler.
- I just added the ability to generate “All” edges (as opposed to having to select only one set of edges norm’d to some length).
This is a pic I uploaded to wikipedia a few weeks ago.
The pic below is a generated from my latest E8Flyer.nbp – it has all 28,680 edges (with the particles at the vertices scaled down in order to focus on the edges).
