Yes, especially the space-filling aspect of it, along with some simple ways to
determine the vertice coordinates.
Lots to play with in the future, for sure!

Oh, OKAY.

Here's a quick render from just inside the surface of a face, and rotated 5
degrees from the "axis" connecting opposite faces.

"Lights" are emissive cylinders connecting 3 edges of each of the 8 rhombi that
form the "caps" to the remaining 4 rhombi comprising the "belt".

Super important: set Max_trace_level to 255.

Hope you like, and others are inspired to explore some other shapes and
reflective experiments.
