Icosahedron Realization

By cshake
1660 rings, about 15 hours, around 3.5" (9cm) diameter

Base Weave: Orbital Hex Cage

Short Stats: 20g 3/16" Aluminum.

Long Stats:
0.035" (0.9mm) ER5356 Al, diamond draw welding wire.
3/16" Mandrel, hand-coiled and shear cut with Wiss M3s, final diameter after springback was not measured.

This is the followup to the CGI Prototype I posted here recently, and I'm happy that my povray macros made it realistic. Just a bit of work on the textures and I'll be golden with that. And having said that, here's the finished render.

Followup: It's been hanging from my rear view mirror since October '10 :)

Wow. That is just way too much work for me. Of course, my next thought was that you need to stitch little numbers to the sides. It'd be wicked awsome as a die in RPGs. :P

My thoughts exactly.
