Zometool model of a Icosahedron

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

  • 12 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 icosahedron consists of 12 vertices, 30 edges and 20 triangular faces. Its vertex figure is a regular pentagon.
