I picked up a set of Magnetix, but it didn’t come with enough magnets to build what I wanted. So I started playing around with the free 3D rendering program Blender and rendered a few shapes constructed of magnets.

There are also some higher resolution static renderings of this scene in the Magnets photo album.


This was rendered in Blender on my PowerBook G4.
