Nested regular polyhedra: the 5 Platonic solids are nested to show their relationships: the octagon within the tetrahedron, which is made of the diagonals of the cube, showing that the octahedron and cube are duals (the vertices of one aligning with the centers of the faces of the other), and that the tetrahedron is its own dual. The cube vertices lie on 8 of the vertices of the dodecahedron, which is the dual of the icosahedron; whose edges meet at the midpoints of the edges of the dodecahedron. Plotted in Mathematica, solidified in Blender,cleaned up in Netfabb Cloud. The struts have been thickened to 1mm to be printable in colored polished plastic and all metals.
