So, well into our third project now, and it's just starting to get really interesting. We'll be transforming a concept of pattern into a 3-D printed model. It's going to be really, really cool, and I can't wait to get my model printed for me! It's just such a cool concept of design! You can create something on the computer and then have a machine make it for you. That idea is just fantastic, and seems almost otherworldly. So, for this new project, a lot of the inspiration is going to come…

I was curious, so I analyzed the geometry of the peacock's tail-feather display.  Turns out the shape is a symmetrical phyllotaxis, which is somewhat surprising.   Most phyllotaxis patterns in nature (like on pinecones, pineapples and sunflowers) have spirals of adjacent Fibonacci numbers (usually 5, 8, 13 or 21), but the peacock's feathers have the same count of spirals in both directions!
