Octahedral Inversion pendant

3D printed in pure brass that's hand-polished to a fine sheen.
Product Description
Here 14 truncated octahedra, 14-faced solids which pack space without voids, are packed around a single central truncated octahedron (which now appears on the outside), and all of the vertices are then inverted (the vectors divided by their length to the 1.7 power, inverting the object in the unit sphere). The polygon faces were then perforated, leaving small edges only, which were thickened in Meshlab. The original object was plotted in Mathematica. At 1 mm diameter, this will print in many metals as well as the white and colored plastics. It will make a fine pendant or earring; chain and findings are not included.
