Spherical magnet buckyball scaffold

Spherical magnet buckyball scaffold 3d printed Mathematical Art Desk Toys
See the video for details. This model consists of 3 slightly different sized versions of a scaffold for building a buckyball out of spherical magnets, with diameters nominally between 4.8 and 5mm. A slight variation in the sizes of the magnets relative to the scaffold has a large effect on the stability of the buckyball, so one of the three sizes should work with the magnets you have. This is joint work with Rosa Zwier.
