I suppose something like below would work(?)
Pretty easy to replicate, once the edge lengths are determined for your desired "sphere" radius.
You could use an online truncated icosahedron calculator to determine the edge length.
Despite the name of the file, I did the below simply by using 2D entities.
That's a mind-bender, Alvin. Does it really fold into a "soccer ball"?
Yep. The two black pentagons that are sticking out on their own at the top and the bottom are the top and bottom of the soccer ball.
I've been obsessed with this soccer ball thing the past two days (my days off). My truck's broke down, so I can't go anywhere.
One of the first things I came across on the Internet yesterday, when trying to get some conceptual understanding, was this
from this website
.(how'd they do that???)
Folding it in TurboCAD is a pain-- compared to our method of using the Copy and Assemble Tools. I can do it now, using 2D polygons to create the 3D-looking ball, in under 15 minutes, using the Copy and Assemble Tools, including >Surface from Profile; >3D Boolean MultiADD; >then Solid from Surface.
