THE MAGNETIC DOT ENCYCLOPEDIA

Solid Ultimate Sphere Like

by: Gustoph Follow


this is the completed Solid Ultimate Sphere!

This is an ultimate sphere as shown in several YouTube tutorials, however this one is completely solid! This shape started its life as a C60 sphere, and then i just kept adding more loops! First 5ball loops, then double 6ball loops. After that I added double 10ball loops, and then double 9ball loops. Finally i used double 15ball loops as anchors for the ultimate sphere. Its all cataloged pretty well in the pictures... I hope everybody enjoys!!!

As a side note~ i need to say thanks to my very special and smart little lady/camera operator! I couldn't have done it without your help sweetie!!!


from left to right
12 double 5balls loops. 12 double 10ball loops. 12 double 15ball loops, 20 double 6ball loops, then 20 double 9ball loops


here is the completed c60 with an extra layer of pentagonal loops


here the double hex loops are attached


this is the shape once the double 10ball loops are attached


The double 9ball loops attach in the center of the double 10ball loops. Now your done with this shape for a while. You can start on the outer sphere now.


Your going to need around 144 double hex loops... i used my whole mandala set of Zen Magnets for this, and still didnt have enough... in the end i was 10 double hex loops short, so i used my remaining Luminous Buckyballs to fill the gap.

Assemble 15 double hex loops into a pentagon shape. add 5 balls in the center on both sides.

make 12 of these pentagon shapes!


attach them to your inner scaffolding!


once they are all attached I was left with the gap where i had to use my luminous buckyballs.

I used 15 double hex loops to make a pentagon and then added a 5ball loop to both sides before adding the 15ball loop to attach the final outer pentagon.


here is the completed shape!


and a close up!
