Alternative D24 Sphere

This is a Truncated Sphere D24.

This die is inspired by the repulsion force polyhedra. In fact, the underlying polyhedron (not rounded) looks like the two shapes that can be obtained through this technique with 24 points repulsing each others (two Pentagonal Icositetrahedra).
Actually, I calculated the positions of those points 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 24 circular faces of same radius.

See this thread for more informations.

Yes, compared to the classical D24 (based on the deltoidal icositatrahedron) the faces seems to have been mixed up... ;-)

This is one strange dice.
