I also wonder like Roland how you found the positions of the connectors in advance

Problem is not so much to get connector positions (dodecahedron vertices coordinates are known:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regular_do...oordinates), but to have them in the right orientation.

Here is the method I used:

- Get the distance between connectors. I used a visual method for that, placing two connectors with roughly the right orientation, then changing the distance until I got the desired length (96mm = 12L) for the flex part I put between them. Turns out the distance is 252 LDU.

- Calculate the radius r of the circumscribed sphere[url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circumscribed_sphere][/url] (

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regular_do...Dimensions): 353.117LDU.

- Because of symmetry, a connector must be tangent to this sphere. So I placed a connector at y=-353.117, above the middle of top face.

- Then calculate the angle I must turn that connector around origin to place it on one top pentagon vertex. We get alpha = arcsin(r1/r)=37.377° (r1 is radius of circumscribed circle of pentagon with side a = a/2/sin(36°) )

After that, it's only a matter of duplication, rotation by 72° around world Y axis and rotation by 120° around of Y local axis of already placed connectors...
