• How to build a Sphere with your Buckyballs?

    Looking for Buckyballs tricks, shapes, patterns, and how-tos? You came to the right place.

     

    Every few days we’ll be posting new tricks, games, shapes, how-to’s and more fun stuff you can do with your Buckyballs.

     

    This, our second installment of the series, is less of a trick really and more of joy. It takes 180 balls, two minutes, just a bit of know-how, and gumption. Why? Unclear. But a little gumption never hurt anything. Here’s how it’s done:

     

    Step 1 – Starting with a chain, break off 9 balls.
    Step 2 – Connect the ends to make a ring.
    Step 3 – This is the tricky bit; it’s just a pinch and a poke and your ring becomes a triangle. Confused? Try adding gumption… and watching the video above. Seeing it done makes everything that much easier.
    Step 4 – Make 19 more triangles and snap them together to form a sphere.
