A cut-and-paste approach using a family of structurally similar 'growth patches' (pairs of non-isomorphic patches with the same boundary but containing different numbers of vertices) allows formal construction from a C24 seed of all fullerene isomers with up to at least 200 atoms. Algorithmic and chemical implications are discussed.
