Product Description
This is a d12 based on the convex envelope of a faceted dodecahedral sphericon shape.
I was inspired by other makers (bliku and Dice and Jewelry) who have similar d12s.
The challange with this shape is that four faces do not land upward, so they are difficult to label.In my design, I have filleted the problematic vertices to create faces which can be labelled. Then I mounted the tips of those vertices (which look like little kites) back onto the original shape with supports holding them in place.
You can view a rotating animation and the rolling pattern of the dodecahedral (and other) sphericon shapes in this YouTube video (not mine) about Faceted Sphericons.
