Hamiltonian Cycles

Posted this on StackExchange about Hamiltonian Cycles. A Hamiltonian Cycle model involves tracing around the edges of a model:

“A Hamiltonian cycle is a closed loop on a graph where every node (vertex) is visited exactly once.”

Explore the possibilities. Have fun!

Did this with the Dodec Hamiltonian Path. Playing around with it, relaxing the edges, spinning an array using an Empty, I came up with this. I then converted it to a curve, used a bezier circle as the bevel object to thicken the edges and added a gold material.
