Polyhedron Model-Making Tips

Pictured above are the tools I use for constructing my polyhedra:

A box with compartments can be very useful too when working on a model with many different parts. Here the box contains all the parts required for the pseudo great rhombicuboctahedron.

To make models, you'll need to start with nets. You can print these out from Stella4D, Great Stella or Small Stella. Score along the edges, cut out the nets leaving tabs around the outside, crease along all the edges, then glue the pieces together (tab to tab).

Here are a few general tips for building models.

Now go forth and make polyhedra!

Good luck,
Robert Webb.
