3D model description

####Star cube, Star Polyhedron

In Schatz (1945/2013, p. 11), there are a series of five drawings of the so-called star cube, very appealing. But what does it really look like and how does it feel? I wanted to make a physical model to demonstrate its simple yet perplexing structure. After a few experiments, I think I got the ideas now. However, if I missed anything, please kindly leave a comment and let me know. I positioned the star cube vertically to minimize support required for 3D printing.

The star cube has eight sharp vertices. Please be careful and sand (blunt) it a bit when using with children.
