Icosahedron stellation

Another day, another creature. This one is a higher order stellation of a icosahedron, aka an icositruncated dodecadodecahedron.

Helpful puppy for scale:

It’s about 16” point to point. Beefy. Took 4 sheets of baltic birch.

I like that one. I’ll bet it’s structurally stiff!

This is one of those posts that deserves a double like, so here’s a heart in the comments :heart: to make up for the lack of double liking a post.

Definitely one of my favorites. Can we have a full pic of puppy for a bonus? :slight_smile:

Wow, I really like that.

Is it strong enough to hang up? I have made something similar from paper and used it as Christmas decorations.

This one is very cool. Stella?

Stella yes but mostly as a shortcut. It’s a standard stellation of the icosahedron, like the 23rd or something.

I pulled it from Stella into sketchup to turn it into actual volumetric pieces so I’d get the final shapes fur the faces correct without having to do trigonometry. Using @geek2nurse connectors makes that part almost trivial so the rest of the work was done in inkscape.
