Dürer's Solid was designed for the Sinterit Design Competition.
Also known as the truncated triangular trapezohedron, Dürer's Solid is an 8-faced solid. More information on the history and mathematics behind the geometric form can be found here.
Entering a collection of designs for the Math Art theme, my goal is to create a series of as many geometic forms and their respective wireframe structures as I can. Exposing the wireframe structure that make up each geometric form truly shows how complex and intricate these models can be and would utilize the full capabilities of the laser sintering process of 3D printing because of how high of an accuracy would be needed and the process not needing support material.
Creating using Rhino with the plugin RhinoPolyhedra and then edges were generated using Meshmixer.
