Incredible polyhedrons can be made with wire and geometry. Using a torch and the DIWire we created this 60-rhombus hexecontahedron . Explore the magic of geometry: Bend and clip your shapes together to assemble your own polyhedral creations. The shapes can also be bent by hand using pliers and assembled in the same way. Don't forget to let us know how it goes !
