THE MAGNETIC DOT ENCYCLOPEDIA

Epic Septagonal Sphere and Lattices! (And Tutorial!) Like

by: Balgore Follow


I was playing around with Septagonal Subunits put together in sets of 3, using those subunits to try and make a ball and other neat things.

Need a better name than Sphere, never seen a shape like this before anywhere, is it an icosehdron? I Don't even know lol...

This was probably the most epic build I have ever done, and although it is "only" 7 sets of dots, it took a long time to figure out, disassemble, reassemble, etc.

Isn't it crazy how even working with Septagons (21 dot subunits), put together in 3's (63 dots), and then using 24 (such a strange number I find, usually balls use 12 or 20) and it still comes to exactly a denomination of 216. *mind blown*

    very cool :-)

    I've had a proper look now ... These subunits are all identical right? and they seem to join deep into the structure as well. Very nice!

    Very Nice!

    Yeah, well done sir, interesting square geometry

    Interesting, different, and rather impressive.

    Yes every sub unit is identical and made of 3 septagons. You can also place 4 septagons together to make another unique subunit with a lot of other potential.

    Also upon further analysis I believe it is a cuboctahedron and not a "sphere".
