Product Description

25 great circles compose this sphere: 6 of them are perpendicular to the axes of opposite cuboctahedron vertices, 7 perpendicular to the axes of opposite face centers, and 12 perpendicular to the axes of opposite edge centers. Note that the symmetry sphere for the rhombic dodecahedron is identical, because it is the dual of the cuboctahedron. Buckminster Fuller called the cuboctahedron the "Vector Equilibrium", because the vectors from the center to the vertices are in equilibrium and also the same length as the sides.  It forms the basis of the space truss formed of tetrahedra and octahedra. The sphere size is 75mm in diameter, with 1mm diameter wires.
