Packings and Povray

On this site, I will show a few pictures of packings and related things. All these pictures have been generated with povray. If you would like to generate them yourself or modify them, feel free to do so. The povray sources are in most cases available for download.
The following picture describes a facet in the fcc lattice with normal vector [-1,3,7]. The centers of the red spheres lie in the facet, the centers of the green spheres in the next layer and so on.
The povray source: fcc.pov
