Sure, if you are making gaming dice.HOWEVER, this is my first step toward calculating/generating geodesic spheres.This Geodesic Dome Cat House got me thinking about a geodesic helmet !This is a 3v dome.Then I saw this Low Cost Astronaut Helmet from Instructables which is a truncated icosahedron like a soccer ball.I am shooting for a 3v helmet, and then maybe a 4v version.Keep your eyes on Thingiverse !Dan White | d_e_white@icloud.com
