Build a football with magnets
Addition from customer Josef Marhl, Vienna (Austria):
Since your delivery service is fast as lightning, I managed to assemble a magnetic football just in time for the European Football Championship.
The football was built with:
The assembly of the football formation was a little difficult. That's why I initially had to support the pentagons with additional five radial rods and a sphere in the middle. When there was only a little hole on top of the entire ball, I could dismantle the support.
Interestingly, it didn't really turn out to be round, although enough hexagons and pentagons were available: 12 pentagons and 20 hexagons. For those who want to check out the geometry of a football in more detail: A wonderfully designed website (in German though) on this topic can be found here.
