Polyhedra Starter Kit


#1

This file contains patterns for the base part (black outline) and connector (red outline) for six types of polyhedron, sized for use with medium PG plywood/draftboard.

Polyhedra

They all have sides measuring 2.5" with matching connector spacing, but of course to combine different shapes you’ll need to come up with the proper dihedral angles, as the included connectors won’t work for that.

As always, show me what you make!

So many thanks. I was going to be trying to figure out the dodecahedron soon.

Here’s another dodecahedron. This one is based on the file up above, so you can see what size it turns out to be. I did some inlay work on this one, and backed each piece with clear acrylic (because I was out of translucent acrylic and I’m bad at waiting).

I stuck purple fairy lights inside.

Fairy lights (like glitter) make all things better.

Really nice detail in that!
