3D Printed Sphericons I

The standard sphericon has a square section, but you can make sphericons from any regular polygon (as is described here). We use the variable k to represent the number of sides of the polygon.

Chris K. Palmer emailed me today to show me some fascinating models he has made of sphericons from k=4 to k=10.

He printed these in 3D from models he created on the computer. The holes are to contain magnets so that the sphericon halves can be turned and rejoined to make different shapes.
