TOFU Meeting
February 24, 2001

The big project for the February meeting was a Rhombic Dodecahedron shaped calendar. The calendar consists of 12 Rhombic units. The Rhombic unit was designed by Nick Robinson. The idea of printing a calendar month on each unit was the idea of Humiaki Huzita of Italy. Thoki Yenn, of Denmark, worked out the problem of actually getting the calendar to print at the right slant.

Diagrams for the calendar units are available on Thoki Yenn's website at

The printed calendar design we used was created by Lar de Souza, and can be found at (You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print this file.)
