A few weeks ago I decided to take on the challenge of modelling a 4-Dimensional 600-Cell geometric shape in blender. Many years ago I chose the name of this shape, the Hexacosichoron, as my gaming identity, starting with Minecraft, and eventually adopting it for Steam, Discord, Twitch and my gaming channel on YouTube. Back in my early college days I became interested in exploring 4D geometry. The Tesseract, also known as a hypercube or Octachoron became the inspiration for my personal brand with Octachoron Digital.

With the shape fully modelled, I've now embarked on the process of animating a 4D rotation of the shape using perspective construction and shape keys. Below are some gifs of the work-in-progress.
