Hi, not a chemist, just playing with carbon molecules and curious about them.

I'm curious about carbon nanotube and related structures. I was fiddling with a website called molview and was thinking about how you could maybe (given carbon can kind of make four bonds, more or less) make different structures by connecting carbon together. 
I'm curious about this sort of thing, where you have a triangular spiral connected along the points - 


- it seems like you could also maybe connect it up into rings like this - 

I guess I'm curious whether it'd be a feasible structure to make and if it's an interesting one (and if not feasible what resources I could look at for more information. kind of a chemistry noob. Thanks!)
