Fudgidron was suggested by Andreas Nortmann. It is a chamfered cube
of which the chamfer faces have been fudged
into a regular hexagon. Its closest relative is the Fudgedron
, which is based on the geometry of a truncated octahedron
. The main challenge of this design are the edges, which would jiggle loosely in the big gaps between adjacent hexagonal faces. The solution was to give each edge a centerboard
that slides through grooves in the spherical core.
