Day 204 - Pentakis Dodecahedron

Yes, we seem to have fallen behind again. We can talk more about that on some "Friday." For now we'll catch up with the rest of our Catalan prints and some additional Menger prints before getting on to new designs.

Before we start, I want to give a shout-out to three people on Thingiverse that have been doing excellent work with polyhedra:
Today's Catalan solid is the Pentakis Dodecahedron, dual of the Truncated Icosahedron (aka "soccer ball,' aka "football," depending on where you live).
