The original dodecahedral kinetic scultpure by Virtox.
Made of five nested dodecahedra, each one is limited to rotate about it's own axis.
A most intriguing and mesmerizing object.
Medium = 6.5cm / 2.5"
Large = 9cm / 3.5"
Extra Large = 12cm / 4.6"
Be sure to check out the original Gyro the Cube
For tighter clearances it is printed with the hinges out of place. So this model needs a little manual assembly. Each element has two "knobs" which need to be "clicked" into the corresponding "clamps" in the parent element.
It's easiest to start with the inner one and then continue outwards.
And then... spin it away !
Be careful with the larger gyro verions, fingers may get pinched if put between the (moving) rings, so handle with care!
Also be careful with the assembly of the metallic plastic versions as this material is less flexible than the others.
