I just wanted to share. Radiolarian 11 is sadly unstable! The missing corners reduced the stability too much. That's two strikes... I'll make a version 2 of this.

Tape was used for assembly, and when I removed the tape from the back, it fell apart as shown behind the puzzle.

Very sad, but a brave attempt. Out of interest, how much does such a failure cost?

Failures are necessary steps to success. If you don't succeed then you are not trying hard enough, but if you don't fail then you are not aiming high enough. :)

Chinese word says "Failure is the mother of success". Sounds funny? But you know the meaning. Failure leads to success. I still think you did a great job!

A failure like this hits between 250 and 350, since the interiors are getting dense. It's a definite bummer.


I must say both #10 and #11 were risky designs. I think I know how to stabilize it on the next try. #12, which I am working on tonight, will help me know.

Looks like video wins this round.
I hope you can get this working! It looks like a lot of fun.

I just realised that the dodecahedral shape modded version of this would look exactly like the master brillic.
:O
