Model A Sacred Merkaba In Blender 2.76

Skill Level: Regular / Views: 13 / System Requirements: Blender 3D v2.7x or higher.

In this tutorial, we're going to model a Sacred Merkaba, also known as a Stellated Octahedron or Star Tetrahedron in Blender 2.76. This is a companion video to a 3dsmax tutorial I did of the same object, and we will attempt to recreate that workflow now using Blender. You will need the Loop Tools addon, and the Extra Objects addon enabled for this exercise. They are located in the Addons tab of your User Preferences, under the "Mesh" and "Add Mesh" categories. I'm also using the Pie Menus, and Dynamic Spacebar Menu in this example, but they are not necessary to follow along.
