Printed a stellated dodecahedron with the folding 3D print technique I got from Chris Miller. Each face prints flat and edges fold to the dihedral angle to form the polyhedron. Sides (and obligatory addressable LED string) are held in place with small zip ties.
It's printed in clear PETG at 0.2 mm layer height. Wall thickness 1.5mm. Joined edges are 0.4mm thick. I printed it first with PLA, but flexing the edges more than a dozen or so times while inserting the LEDs broke them. PETG is sturdier.
