I didn't use the popular 3D tile ball method to make this one; actually, I created it from scratch, using a Spherical gasket. The orb in the middle was created by using two transforms with z-translate. It took a long time, but it was fun to make.
The title speaks for itself, really: I was aiming to create something that looked like a sub-atomic particle.
Made with Apophysis 7X.
