3d Tutorial: Model A Sacred Merkaba For 3D Printing Answered

In this quick tutorial, we model what is known as a Sacred Merkaba for 3d printing or digital asset design.  Symbolic of ancient spirituality and mysticism, this shape has been part of religious iconography for thousands of years.  Geometers and mathematicians recognize it as a Stellated Octahedron, or Star Tetrahedron.  I'm using 3dsmax 2012 for this example, but the techniques can be translated to any capable polygonal modeling package.
