About this Product

Alternative Truncated Sphere D8

This is another solution for the Truncated Sphere D8, different from the one based on a regular octahedron.

This die is inspired by the repulsion force polyhedra. In fact, the underlying polyhedron (not rounded) is a trapezohedron. It looks like the shape that can be obtained through this technique with 8 points repulsing each others.
But in this case, 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 8 circular faces of same radius.

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