Truncated Sphere D15.

This die is inspired by the repulsive force polyhedra although in this case, the underlying polyhedron (not rounded) is very different from the shape that can be obtained through this technique with 15 points repulsing each others.
Actually, I calculated the positions of points (5 at each tropic, 5 at equator, none at the pole) to have a maximal radius for the circles resulting from the intersection of this underlying polyhedron with a sphere. The result is a truncated sphere with 15 circular faces of same radius.

It is numbered from 1 to 15: all numbers are on edges.
The sum of the numbers on each tropic is 40 and the same applies to the equator.
Except for 8, all the numbers go by pair summing to 16: on the tropic two numbers symmetric relatively to the plane of the equator sum to16 and on the equator circle itself two numbers symmetric relatively to number 8 sum to 16. 

This die is made of a shell of 1.5 mm that contains support material to make it heavier. The engraved numbers have a 0.75 mm depth.
