By the way, I have now a D10 based on a dodecahedron with pentagonal pyramids to remove two opposite faces: http://www.shapeways.com/model/222679/ ;)
clsn says:
I see what you mean. The ordinary d10 could conceivably be made with any proportions: long and narrow to short and thin. They're usually made so it has a square cross-section, but extending the faces of a dodecahedron would give a different ratio.

Magic says:
Yes, you are totally right! It is even more visible on the pointed D10 with 5-fold symmetry. These are the most "conventional" dices of the truncated sphere D10 collection. And probably the only *really* fair ones. The angles between the faces are different though: if you look and ordinary D10 from a certain point of view, you will see a square section, which does no happen here (even ignoring the curved areas, I mean).
clsn says:
I can see it's derived from the regular dodecahedron (replacing two faces with curved sections), but it can also be seen as coming from the ordinary d10, with the two sharp points cut off and replaced with curves. Shows a relationship between those shapes! Cool!!
