This is an 'Ultimate Sphere' caged by a Rhombic Triacontahedron with a base at the bottom...

    A geometric marvel indeed.

    Do you have a special technique for building a Rhombic triacontahedron? For those new to building, how difficult is the cage to create (1-10 with 10 the hardest)?

    In total I've used 3 different ways to build a Rhombic triacontahedron...
    This one is special because the highest point is where the 3 faces meet - this method would be a clear 7 I think.
    I found this video by Magnenaut after creating this picture: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKlpKBPnQBg
    He uses a different technique but the geometric result is the same - this would be a 4,5 I think ;-)
