About this Product

Otherwise known as a Steinmetz solid, this is a curiosity because it is a circle in plan, front and elevation, yet it is not a sphere. It's said to be quite an interesting object to hold (I'll be finding out when I order it) and it will happily roll despite having "corners".

I first uploaded one of these last month, but this time it is of 5cm diameter and uses rather more polygons to give a closer approximation to a cylinder.
