Introduction: Make Do-decahedron Lamp Using Fusion360
Do-decahedron means which geometry have 12 sides.
This Project is combination of three processes .
1 -- Laser cutting
2 -- Knitting with Cotton Thread
3 -- Electronics
Buy Supplies stated below for make this DIY project.
Let's go For making This Lamp.

Step 1: Laser Cutting
In First step we cut MDF sheet in Pentagonal shape stated in image .
I am using Fusion360 for design this Pentagon shape for lamp.
I attach short video for how to make this Do-decahedron Lamp in Fusion360 .

Step 2: How to Assemble Using Thread
While design we make hole at circumference of Pentagon for Knitting with Thread.
1 -- Insert Thread into Needle Hole.
2 -- Start Knitting from any side of both pentagon.
3 -- Take two pentagon and Choose any one side for start Knitting.
4 -- When you Finish one side make Knot at end of the holes.
5 -- Repeat this procedure for all 5 side of 1 pentagon.
6 -- After This step you have 5 pentagon attach with 1 pentagon sides.(1 Middle and 5 at side).
Step 3: Knitting Work Flow
7 -- After Knitting Two Pentagon from one side , Repeat this procedure for Same pentagon with another 4 pentagon.
8 -- After knitting 6 pentagon you have one pentagon knitting from all side in center and another 5 pentagon connect from all side of center pentagon.
9 -- Repeat this side by side knitting for another 5 pentagon for making Dodecahedron.
10 -- When you have 1 pentagon left you need to knit it from one side for working as lead (close or open Dodecahedron).
Step 4: Finish Knitting
Use all side of pentagon for joining by Knitting and after joining 11 Pentagon you have 1 Side open in
For making Lamp, We need to open it from one side for inserting LED strip.
Unwind LED Strip and test it with 12v adapter.
I have white LED strip , you will buy any color LED Strip or RGB LED strip for lightning.
Step 5: Light It Up Using LED Strip
Attach Last Pentagon From One side Through Thread.
Fill Flexible LED Strip inside Do -decahedron.
Attach 12v Power adapter with LED Strip for light it up.
Use thread and Knit any 2 sides of open pentagon .
Now you have Do-decahedron lamp Ready for use in your home.
You will Hang it on wall ,make lamp stand for night lamp.
