Tutorial: How to make Dodechahedron


Here is another way to make a same thing but with help of sheetmetal features of SW. It used base flange, cut holes and sketched bend features.

First make sketch as you see on pic with 5 side polygon diameter 250mm and with base flange make a sheetmetal plate 1mm thick

  1. Step 1:

    First step

  2. Step 2:

    Now cut a holes -dia 2 mm on problematic corners - think where is!
    Now use sketched bend at angle 63.43 degrees with radii 0.01mm

  3. Step 3:

    Next bending with same parameters

  4. Step 4:

    Final bending with same parameters.

  5. Step 5:

    Here is flat pattern from sheetmetal

  6. Step 6:

    And colored part
