Catalan Wireframe Polyhedra by mathgrrl Mar 28, 2014

Featured Thing!


These stylized wireframe models of the thirteen Catlan solids were made using Mathematica, MeshLab, and TopMod. Print them for mathematical bling or to show off what your printer can do! These models were printed on a MakerBot Replicator 2.

Optimized for .2mm layer height with raft and minimal supports. Some of the models can be printed without any supports at all.

For very detailed information on how these models were designed and printed, visit the link below.

Thank You for making these! I have a massive set of polyhedra and I find a full file of catalan solids, Jackpot!

with ABS does it need struts, because it looks unstable to print.

Some of them can get away without supports, but most of them do need at least some.

Looks like you could convert it into a polyhedral die, if someone wanted a random 120!
