This is too cool! I love it. Thanks lots for sharing the file!! May the world be filled with Icosahedrons (made on a Glowforge, naturally).
Thanks for the design! I ended up making a “d20 life counter” with it.
It was harder than I imagined to put it together. I was impatient, and just glued everything in about an hour. I really should have made a jig to hold a couple of pieces together, and glued it two pieces at a time. Nonetheless, it worked, and I’m quite happy with it.
That came out really nice!!! I like putting them together while sitting in bed in the evening with a good audiobook. Keeps me from being impatient, because I’m absorbed in the book and don’t mind sitting there waiting for the glue to harden enough to move on.
Nice work, that turned out great.
Thanks for the share! Here’s my make, nothing exciting but it was fun to make.
I whipped up a little brother too.
Now I just need a huge dice tower to roll them down! Lol!
Ooh, those are lovely! It really doesn’t take much to dress them up. And I’m totally stealing your colored outline idea!
Any chance you could share the dodecahedron? I have a project that I’ve been waiting on for exactly just this. /begs
Hi, really like these. I don’t seem to be able to see any file links to any of your posts?
The first post has the file. It’s the pattern looking picture. Try a right-click -> save as.
It’s actually against forum guidelines to request files, but as it happens I’ve already posted one, so you’re in luck. See Polyhedra Starter Kit. It will be larger than the one in the photos, but you can adjust the size to what you want; just keep the connector holes same size and distance from the edge, and you’re all set.
I never saw that post! Awesome work!
Oh really is it lol. Thanks anyway il try and upload it tomorrow. Really like the design
hi, just realised its an image file. Thank you very much.
Got around to making my own… thanks for the files…still have to figure how to get that last piece connected the right way. I used puduk, oak and zebra wood. Yah geometrics
Yeah, the last one can be challenging! It helps to round off the ends of the connectors a little, and you can also use a hobby knife to take the edges off the holes on the back of the last piece, to help things slide into place a little easier.
Ok here’s my little version. There are 20 sides and I have (or will have by this summer) 19 grandkids. So one for each name and a spot for Grandma and Papa. I put them in random order facing all directions, so they can have fun finding their name.
Love this idea and execution. 19 grandkids…so many blessings!
Worked out perfectly.
