Snug fit with MDF 3MM no glue necessary (so NOT for proofgrade material)
Topped of with a piece of veneer.

That looks great. Thanks a lot for this.
Very cool. Thanks for the share!
What an intricate design! Thank you for sharing.
I see a very unique pencil holder for my desk. Thanks for the share.
Thank you. How many images are there in this design? It is difficult to discern.
you have to scale it up a bit
@rpvalk thanks for the share, it really is a very interesting construct with an intriguing design worthy of any desktop.
A conversation piece to say the least!
I am confused by the connections. How many of the “endplate_joineds” are needed? I see 60 “sides_joionts” which provide 120 tabs but there are only 80 square holes between the sides and endplates. Seems like there are more of one type and not enough of the other than are needed.
Would the proper mix be 20 of the “endplates_joineds” and 20 of the “sides_joionts” ?
Lol wanted to make a icosahedron but I was a bit put off by how easy it was. So I decide to make it a bit more challenging to put together.
So they are files from two different projects, or if you want you can build a icosahedron too
But for the box you need
20 side joints
20 buttom and top joints
12 inner sides
and a top plate veneer
The 20 buttom and top joints actually are 2-3 degrees of but it fitted pretty good for me so I didn’t change them.
Thanks this is fab! I may make it into a plant pot cover.
Oh wow, what a cool design! Thanks so much.
Very cool. Thank you for sharing!
the box sides appear to have a flaw. rather than 6 little square holes in each, 2 pairs of holes are connected in a way that results in a v shaped cut. the square holes and the v shape connections are the same color in the shared image so they cut as one or not at all.
Here is the file as I corrected it. Missing 2 triangles though.
icosahedron_box_sides_v1.svg.zip (42.3 KB)
i didn’t have that effect all square holes cut fine for me. so not sure what happend there!
build it again for you it should be separate tasks
This is STUNNING! Thanks so much for the share!
