Dodecahedron on Walnut


#1

Second project using the platonic solids from thingiverse, and went for a dodecahedron. Still need to make a stand for it, so I used the stand from the dymaxion globe project for the picture. This one is bigger, about the size of a basketball.


#2

Hmm what are the specs on those screws? Really nice, subtle.


#3

Very pretty! Like the zentangle design! :grinning:


#4

Here are the socket head m3 screws I used from amazon.


#5

awesome. I want to make a bunch of these but waiting on some 3d printed parts for it. love the layers

I’ve got another batch of the platonic solids on the 3D printer right now. A dodecahedron takes 20 of them, and takes about 5 hours to print. I’m making a 12 sided die using clear acrylic for a gamer friend with green filament. I have a few more ideas on creating these shapes. I’m thinking that making a bigger version of this with a slotted opening on one of the edges would make a unique card drop for weddings…

Really beautiful


#8

Very impressive piece … zentangles are always cool!

Here is the dodecahedron in acrylic, as well as the .svg file. I formatted this one so you could make this using 1 sheet of material. If anyone really wants to make one of these, but don’t have access to a 3D printer for the corner pieces, reach out to me and we can come up with an arrangement to send you a set.
