Quaquaversal tiling

The quaquaversal tiling is a nonperiodic tiling of the euclidean 3-space introduced by John Conway and Charles Radin. The basic solid tiles are half prisms arranged in a pattern that relies essentially on their previous construct, the pinwheel tiling. The rotations relating these tiles belong to the group G(6,4) generated by two rotations of order 6 and 4 whose axes are perpendicular to each other. These rotations are dense in SO(3).
