Hi, Thank you. No radiosity settings this time. With some filling lights 
and 4 instances of povray launched simultanously takes 1 hour more or 
less in my Intel® Core™ i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz × 8 running Ubuntu 18.04.1 

I've doing some maths and adjustments to the shape of the tetrahedrons.

The code and ini files that i'm running right now are included on a zip 
file. No warranty at all.
