Bead valence sphere model of tetra-t-butyl tetrahedrane

The tetrahedrane derivative with four tert-butyl substituents, tetra-t-butyl tetrahedrane, was synthesized by the Austrian chemist,Günther Maier, in 1978. Here is the bead valence sphere model of this interesting molecule I made this afternoon. I think the hardest part to make molecules with many sp3 centers how to control the force evenly in the whole weaving process.
