The dodecahedron is a very cool Platonic solid, with more interesting properties
than one can imagine.
At least we have it easy with POV-Ray and computer graphics and can employ some
tricks. Imagine having to make this thing out of wood on a table saw - where
you not only have the angles of the faces to one another, you have the compound
angles of the edges and corners... :O
You may enjoy perusing this guy's blog - he's a roofer in CA. I've never seen
such an amazing amount of work done for construction design. If there was a PhD
in roofing, this guy would have it - and then some!
