    This is captivating, in a way I can't describe. Anyone who builds this knows that this type of creation can be painstaking. Do you have any tips on how to build this to avoid rage quitting? :P

    Psstt... I love really everything about this creation upload.

    Thank you :)

    Uhh that's hard to describe :D I see what I can do:
    -first you have to build an octahedron like it is shown in this video

    -then you have to extend this like it is shown here (the video is about a cuboctahedron - just take the technique for the triangular faces)

    -and at last you can simply connect the tips and add triangles to the corners...

    I am sorry but I can't tell you the edge lengths I took for this because I built it a few months ago ;-)
    hope I could help you if you want to try

    A new favorite of mine from your collection. It reminds me of an optical illusion.

    Wow, I've looked at this bad boy a couple of times, and inhaled deeply while deciding whether to attempt it then or later. Up until today if always come down on the side of later... BUT NO MORE!!! I'm so inspired by this build- I find it so mindnumbingly perfect in shape and size and "WOW factor"- I cannot put this one aside any more!
    Thanks for adding this incredible build! I realize that it's been here on Dotpedia for quite some time now... But it's definitely one of the more impressive builds on the whole site!
    I look forward to seeing what you've been building lately, and hope that you'll bless us with some more uploads soon!!!
