222: Jitterbug

Posted by wonko on August 10, 2011 in geometry |

My Monthly Modular is a fab use of equilateral triangles that work in clusters of 4 or 5 to make interesting spheroids:

Eight of the modules make a “Jitterbug” – a curious structure that twists into a cube.

Thirty of the modules clustered in fives make a soccer ball (er, sorry, an Icosadodecahedron) which is a lovely thing to behold. (oops, sorry, a icosidodecahedron)

A relatively simple construction, quite quick also and also fairly rigid given how the parts interlock and self-tighten. You can have a go at this yourself here
