why platonic solids?
my inspiration for this project was the print "stars
" by amazing artist m c escher, or more exactly the "study for stars". I've added an image of the study for stars, this is not a picture i took myself! in this picture you can see the five platonic solids, along with 4 more complicated structures (that are made from combining some of the solids), as well as one rhomboid structure that i also made. this structure is more complicated, since there is some calculating involved. i will not include this shape in the instructable.
