The GearsSphere Model Youtube Video is fun-da-mentally and centrally based on the 3-dimensional shape

called the Do-deca-hedron = Dodecahedron: A 12-sided structure/sculpture made from 12 Pentagons.

Here is the Geometric Net: the paper pattern template for cutting and gluing this fundamental structure.

BTW, our Friend from History, (quoted and highlighted on our Geometry Definitions & Quotations Page)

Albrecht Durer, Singular Artist and Genius from the European Renaissance, invented... that is drew the first-ever

Geometric Nets = Paper Pattern Cutouts for the Dodecahedron and other fundamental 3-Dimensional Geometric / Mathematical Models...

approximately in the year 1520...

Here enclosed for you to view and build now in 2013...


You can enlarge this template to construct larger ( more impressive? :-) models as well...

Yes, you and we...are part of History... in the Making... of Geometry... continued ...

I used this Geometric Pattern of 12 pentagons with strategically placed glue flaps to construct a larger cardboard model of a cool

Dodecahedron, which is about halfway finished...(as of January 8, 2011...)
