Zometool model of a Dodecahedron

Here we show a zometool model of a dodecahedron, one of the five Platonic solids. For the model you need

  • 20 balls,
  • 30 long blue (b2) struts.

Of course one can scale down the model to b1 (medium size) or to b0 (mini version).

The pictures below were taken by Eva-Maria Gassner.

The dodecahedron consists of 20 vertices, 30 edges and 12 pentagonal faces. Its vertex figure is a regular triangle.
