This one started as experimenting with Stella to generate interesting structures, and I liked the outcome, so here we are. 120 faces, 180 connectors. Not the most complex build, but challenging enough to make it fun.
It’s actually not too complicated, really. It’s all about having the right software. I used Stella to explore various shapes, then exported to Sketchup to model actual materials (.12 thickness BB). I use either Stella or Sketchup to get the correct angles, then the rest is pretty simple. Import the shapes into Inkscape, align slots/holes, and go for it.
It starts with Stella like this:
And you can see just how much of the heavy lifting is already done.
