104: the triangle sphere

how do you make a triangle sphere out of magnet balls? we’ll show you! this build is made from 180 speks and uses 2 colors.


watch the video or check out the step by step guide below.


the speks triangle sphere step-by-step:

  • step one.

    create a ring of 9 speks.

  • step two.

    pinch a corner with your thumb and forefinger. poke in the other side. the triangle is stable when the inner 6 speks touch. repeat until you have 20 triangles.

  • step three.

    slowly and carefully begin connecting the triangles like so...

  • step four.

    start closing your sphere along the edges of the triangles shown here. It will snap into place.

  • the end.
