### 3-d Tiled Poinsetta Tutorial

White side up if applicable

Push in

This pattern shows up if you push all the vertices in.

This is a different approach to my normal 3-d tessellations.  It has a few more limitations, but I have started playing with changing proportions and what I push in or out.  It has a structural integrity that I really like.  The basic net/tessellation I am working off of has most likely been done before (ten times over).  To hazzard a guess I would say Joel, Eric, Jane, or Christiane to name a few.
