a nanofactory graphic

This was obviously inspired by the nanofactory animation, but I only spent an hour or so on it. I would like to switch out the bar shafts for hexagons and increase the tool tip number. We'll see where this thread goes.

We lost power here, so I had to restart the octet truss simulation. I had to choose between a backup power supply and a backup storage device. I went with the hard drive; what can you do?
I may need to restart it again to save time. Right now I am running it on 1.6 GHz Celeron processor, not my normal simulation computer. After 4 hours it is 0% done. I'll try to swap some things around so we can see how it turns out this year.
