Magnus Wenninger polyhedron models

| | Comments (0)
So after much searching, I finally found some more info on my geodesic buckyball.

Geodesic paper sphere

It turns out the book I probably originally got it from was Spherical Models by Magnus J. Wenninger.  (I found a reference on this site, and there's also his other book - "Polyhedron Models" - which I even have some old photocopies of some of the other shapes! A full list is on Wikipedia).

So with that reference I did some more hunting and found this site which has all the nets for the spherical models!!  Or at least a bunch of them.  I was most interested in the truncated icosahedron, but will have a look at making some more of them as well.  

Excitement!! :)
