Zometool model of a Octahedron

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

  • 6 balls,
  • 12 long green (g2) struts.

Of course one can scale down the model to g1 (medium size) or to g0 (mini version).

The pictures below were taken by Eva-Maria Gassner.

The octahedron consists of 6 vertices, 12 edges and 8 triangular faces. Its vertex figure is a square.
