An Octahedron Made of Lux Blox

This is the first model I built with Lux Blox, a modeling-system I’ve been checking out. If you’d like to try Lux for yourself, the website to visit to get them is https://www.luxblox.com/.

lux octahedron 3

This is an octahedron with an edge length of two. The eight triangular faces are blue, while the edges of the octahedron are orange. Apart from their colors, all these pieces are identical — the basic Lux block, also known as a Lux square. With just this one block, you can build literally millions of things. I’m into polyhedra, so that’s what I’ll be building a lot of, but someone obsessed with dinosaurs could build models of those, as well. Lux Blox are that versatile.

The images above and below show the same Lux polyhedron, viewed from different angles.
