Dodecahedron, pyramid faces, interior mounting

    Prev Next

    612 magnets. Each 20-magnet pentagon has a 31-magnet pentagonal pyramid mounted inside it pointing outwards. Magnet poles are aligned parallel to the perimeter of each pentagon, with the exception of the single top magnet which is randomly aligned. Adjacent pentagons have poles aligned in the same direction at the edges (as evidenced by square instead of triangular patterns at the edges).

      I tried making something like this but it kept collapsing :(

      It is remarkably self-supporting, and shouldn't collapse. From your photostream I can see that you know how to connect adjacent polygons, can you tell me how far you got on this one before it collapsed?
