The “snowfake” is the product of an elaborate computer model designed to replicate the complex growth of snow crystals. Created by mathematicians David Griffeath of University of Wisconsin-Madison and Janko Gravner of University of California, Davis, the model can generate all of nature’s snowflake types in rich, three-dimensional detail.
