 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS Similar to A139250, except the toothpicks are placed in three dimensions, not two. The first toothpick is in the z direction. Thereafter, new toothpicks are placed at free ends, as in A139250, perpendicular to the existing toothpick, but choosing in rotation the x-direction, y-direction, z-direction, x-direction, etc. The graph of this sequence has a nice self-similar shape: it looks the when the x-range is multiplied by 2, e.g. a(0..125) vs a(0..250) or a(0..500). - M.
