Zome Applications

Envisioning Particles and Interactions
A theoretical physicist envisions subatomic particle interactions with the help of Zome
Aperiodic Tiling
Quasicrystals and Aperiodic Tilings with Zome (advanced)
Zome and hand crafted wooden lamps
Zome used in design of lamps
Using the small rhombicosidodecahedron in molecular models
The Zome node is like a small rhombicosidodecahedron but with golden rectangles instead of a square
Aurodyn's HyperFrame node and strut architecture structural system
The HyperFrame node is based on a rhombic triacontahedron, which has the same directions as the Zome blue struts. Their S,M,L struts are in the golden ratio, also like the Zome blue struts.
Visualizing Electromagnetism
Zome is a general purpose modelling tool that enables visualization of electromagnetic concepts which range from models of atoms and molecules to electric transmission powerlines.
