SKU N/A Category

A simple globe based around the Rhombicosidodecahedron. This 3d shape is made from twenty triangle, thirty square and twelve pentagon faces onto which is projected a map of the earth.

This project comes in two versions. The print version contains a pdf for you to print out onto thin card then cut out with scissors. The cutting machine version comes with the same pdf but also includes files ready for Silhouette Cameo 3 as well as svg and jpg files. This project is suitable to print and cut on most popular paper cutting machines.

There is a lot of scoring and cutting so this is the sort of model where the cutting machine really comes into its own!

Print the parts onto thin card and carefully cut out. Assembly is simply a case of gluing the pieces together according to the map and gluing down the tabs. Have fun!
