Here are 5 pencil holders based on the Archimedean solids.

They are constructed from just two elements, hypocycloids and spheres.
Stl files are:

rhombicosidodecahedron.stl and

OpenSCAD code is included.


All of the pencil holders can be constructed direcly on the build platform

The smaller faces were omitted from the pencil holders by commenting out instructions in the openSCAD code. It was felt that the open models were more attractive. The missing faces can be included by reversing the operation.
