Design & Build a Truncated Icosidodecahedron!

I’ve been asked to share my files for creating complex polyhedrals, and also asked many times how I’ve done it. So, I created a tutorial on my method for creating these by making a Truncated Icosidodecahedron, and documenting the steps in Fusion 360 and Adobe Illustrator.

Nice share - super instructional. This is a pretty amazing community where someone will make the effort to do something like this with all the time and attention to detail needed to do a multimedia instructional for a complex project like this one.

Thank you. I don’t have a 3d printer and I will probably never try to build anything this complex, but I am very appreciative of the knowledge and experience you share. I am lucky to be included in this community full of such wonderful artists, scientists, mathematicians and all round interesting people.

Their “Pro” model is supposed to be out any minute at the same price point. So, the old stock will likely get cheaper again before they disappear.
