Truncated Sphere D17 with a 5-fold symmetry
This die is inspired by the . In fact, the underlying polyhedron (not rounded)聽is very similar to the shape聽that can be obtained through this technique with聽17 points repulsing each others.
Actually, I聽calculated the positions of聽17 points to have a maximal radius for the circles resulting from the intersection of this聽underlying polyhedron with a sphere with the following constraints:
-聽1聽point per聽pole (upper and lower face - parallel to the horizontal plane)
-聽5 points around each pole
-聽5 remaining points corresponding to聽5 faces perpendicular to the horizontal plane
The result is a truncated sphere with聽17 circular faces of same radius.
For the numbering, as usual:
聽- the sum of the 5 numbers of the two tropics and of the equator is constant (and equals to 51)
聽- the sum of the 2 poles, of two numbers of the tropics that are symmetric relatively to the equator, of two numbers of the equator that are symmetric relatively to number 9聽is constant (and equals to 18)
