Plain Platonic Solids are pretty cool – fun shapes, interesting properties from side type: triangle square and pentagons; number of edges; number of faces and more.  But they are also plain.

Fall intern and UTeach Maker, Maddie Wallace took on the challenge to make some accessories that would create a way we can sort them, and match the objects to names and features.  Depending on what feature you focus on you might arrange them in completely different order.

Maddies platonic solid Coasters are two sided.  Print the paper version here, just cut out semi-circles, glue together and then cut.

Or find graphics files for laser cutting and other uses in Corel, AI or SVG
