If you can't tell, already, I'm enamored of geodesic constructs.

It is my hope that these deviations will inspire others.

Physicist/geometer,

Hello! Your stuff is amazing! I am a computer art teacher and would love to have my students work towards something like this. I am also interested in using your gear sphere (the one in primary colors) on a website. Would that be something you are open to? Of course your work would be cited with proper links. Thanks so much!

Erin,

Teach away, with whatever I've posted.

I only wish that the primary polyhedra had been addressed in more detail, when I was in school. I self-taught myself geodesic math (spherical trig,) after college, over 35 years ago. I hope that something in my "art" collection will inspire some degree of interest in at least a few of your students.

Attribution of any use on your website is appreciated.

As a resource, I hope you find something upon which you can produce new devations.

(Or, at least, something inspires you....)

Thanks,

I looked at the challenge, and produced the following: Polyhedron: 16-Sided

Only problem is that it can't serve as "dice," since there are no parallel faces, so a number can't display on a (non-existent) top face.

Interesting exercise, nevertheless....
