Runcinated tesseract (tetrahedra only)

Posted on August 10, 2023 by Stéphane Laurent

The runcinated tesseract is a 4D polytope. Thanks to the cxhull package, I extracted all the tetrahedral cells from it, I rounded them and I plotted them with a 4D rotation and a stereographic projection. I really like the result.

Here with Python:

Again with Python but with a space background:

Here with R in 3D rotation:

Again with R but in 4D rotation:

And finally wit POV-Ray:

If you feel it, try to do it with Asymptote.
