Pentagonal Hexecontahedron

Pentagonal Hexecontahedron

Pentagonal Hexecontahedron, a 60 sided polydral with uniform, non-equilateral pentagonal faces. Each face has been offset, and the middle of each face has been sunken in at an angle. This polyhedral is unique in that there are no opposing parallel faces (as seen in most standard polyhedra), nor is there an opposing perpendicular vertex (as seen in the platonic tetrahedral). Instead, when this polyhedral lays flat, the opposing side is simply askew. The faces on this model are sunken in at an angle so that there is a parallel face when this is resting flat. This model measures 3cm for the point where 5 pentagons meet to the point where 5 pentagons meet on the opposing side. The faces are offset by .5mm and are sunken at so that the most shallow point is flush with the face. There is a core to this model such that each pentagon face fot he core is 1mm away from each sunken face (and offest by another .5mm). These facese are then connected to create the most coehisve shell I could. You will notice I have a pentagon offset by .5mm on each face. This is done to show where the facese are on the core inside. If you plan to use this model to make a hollow D60, you will need to keep the number inside this peremeter and push the number 1mm inward to create an even hole. Thank you for looking at this, and let me know if there is anything I can do to make this a better model. #D60 #Pentagonal_Hexecontahedron
