I’ve been thinking about doing nested layered polyhedra in new ways, this is one of the concepts I was kicking around. This is more of a proof of concept than anything else, but I’m pretty happy with how it came out. It’s a very tight fit, I designed it without any real wiggle room… But this is a laser, and wiggle room is for people who aren’t stupidly overconfident.
For the polyhedron geeks out there: It’s not trivial to figure out the face angles and geometry with faces that aren’t rotationally symmetrical, this was an accidentally difficult proof of concept. Use good 3d software, it’ll save you a lot of headaches compared to my method of logic-ing it out. This is some sort of snub cube variant, I think it’s maybe the first stellation of a snub cube. I can’t recall, I was moving quickly.
Whaat! I can’t even understand what I am seeing, much less try to model or build it!
Again @evansd2 you are pushing the limits on polyhedron craft! Congratulations!
Your work and passion continues to amaze and inspire . Many thanks.
