Customizable Hinged Polyhedra
by mathgrrl, published
Hinged models of each of the five Platonic solids, for educational use. Each polyhedral net prints fully assembled with hinges intact and then snaps together to make a Tetrahedron, Cube, Octahedron, Dodecahedron, or Icosahedron.
The demo models are optimized for a Replicator 2 wtih .3mm layer resolution without raft or supports. If you have a different printer or want different sizes then use the Customizer to set your own size and tolerance values.
This was the last big model series on the print-something-every-day-for-a-year blog MakerHome:
