Stellation of Strombic Hexecontahedron

My latest project, and my new favorite shape. This Stellation of Strombic Hexecontahedron was generated in Stella4D, connectors designed and created in Fusion360 and 3D printed. The faces are Rowmark Colorshop plywood. Very Fun!

Absolutely. I still have dexterity issue due to MS, and drop a ton of screws and parts on the floor. I swear sometimes too.

Yep! i know that part. It’s required for eventual success.

I used a program called Stella4D to give me the face angles, edge lengths, and most importantly the dihedral angles. This one looks insanely cool, but is somewhat simple as it uses the same face shape for the entire piece. I’ve finally got enough knowledge of Fusion360 to crank these out pretty quickly. The way I was doing it on some of my earlier shapes was so inefficient.

I got pretty competent with F360 and my 3D printer. Haven’t quite figured out the workflow for the GF yet. Something to look forward to.

Well, when you’re ready, I can help you create a connector.
