The Polywell reactor has a core. This is the core of WB6 from EMC2:
This is what it looks like opened up:
So lets start by modeling the shape of the core. To make it more interesting, we’ll use the truncated dodecahedron. Supposedly the truncated dodecahedron has advantages over the truncated cube:
This is a simple dodecahedron:
To find the midpoint of the dodecahedron’s planes, we can use the Icosahedron:
So now we can generate a torus at each of the vertices of the Icosahedron, orthogonal to the line connecting the vertices to the origin. But first lets take a look at some of the tool and technologies we might use.
