Maya Plugin for Complex 3D Shapes

Inspired by Buckminster Fuller and with “an affinity for pure geometric forms such as the torus and platonic solids”, Liquid Buddha Studios has developed the Cosmic Geometry Tookit, a plugin for Autodesk Maya that allows artists to “create highly complex geometric forms such as toroidal structures and tetrahedral designs for 3D printing.”

Included are tabs for platonic solids and Fuller’s favorite, the Jitterbug. The plugin can be found on GitHub and is open for use under a Creative Commons ShareAlike license.
