Hi all,

I wanted to share a new physical model of the {6,3,3} H³ honeycomb. This
is the very special object Andrey’s
MT633<>puzzles are based
on. Its cells are infinite hexagonal tilings inscribed
in horospheres <> (whereas we’re
used to having cells inscribed in finite spheres).

It is awesome to hold the model in your hand! You can see pictures and
order one for yourself here:

I’ve been working on this model and other H³ honeycombs with Henry
The {5,3,4} is already available as well, and more are coming soon! I am
hoping we’ll eventually have models of all 15 regular H³ honeycombs (even
including the really exotic ones like the {4,4,4}, which I will share more
about later).
