308: the star hexacontagon

how do you make the star hexacontagon out of magnet balls? we’ll show you! watch the video or check out the step by step guide below.

this build is made from 564 speks and uses 2 colors.

the speks star hexacontagon step-by-step:

  • step one.

    create a chain of speks following this pattern.

  • step two.

    form a ring of 5 speks. wrap your chain of speks around the ring to create a pentagon. continue until each side has 4 speks. the shape will not be flat.

  • step three.

    repeat step two using a chain of 15 speks to create a pentagon with 3 speks per side. add a spek to the center.

  • step four.

    pick up your pentagons, one face up and one face down, interlock one edge and fold the shapes together.

  • step five.

    repeat steps one through four until you’ve created 5 star point pentagons, 6 darker pentagons and 1 lighter pentagon, as below.

  • step six.

    arrange the pointed design pentagons around the lighter pentagon to form a star. lift them off the table and form half of your hexacontagon (that’s a shape with 60 sides)!

  • step seven.

    create the other half and snap 'em together! want more how-to's? back to speks ed.
