Although I rarely make the same polyhedral twice, I make an exception for one of my favorites, a stellated strombic hexacontehedron. This one is super sparkly!
Indeed! Very sparkly!
What size did it work out to?
Curious how long it took to put together. Looks like an afternoon job.
Wow, that’s gorgeous!
I think for a normal person, they could put this together in a couple hours. Unfortunately I have MS, and my fingers don’t always cooperate when trying to use small things like screws, so I do it a little bit at a time. Probably 3 hours total, but that also includes peeling the tape off of each of the faces. This one doesn’t have as many screws as many of the polyhedrals that I do, and the internal connectors fit really well on this one. Others you have to coax it into place sometimes.
You do a lot better from what I have seen than most people without issues at least in the result. I once had extremely steady hands but 50 years on and not so much.
You make these things and it just astounds me how you were able to conceive them in the first place. Great job.
That’s amazing! There’s obviously an internal structure?
That’s um…sparkly! Very sparkly. You’ve given me the incentive to try out the black-sparkly I purchased this month.
There’s a 3D printed connector at each Apex that provides the correct angle. Some of the polydrals have multiple different types of connectors, and some have one.
Nice - these are so cool!
