dscf2790 Printed Modular Buckyball Lamp

Michael Rule of Providence, Rhode Island, printed the 12 pentagonal and 20 hexagonal modules of his Atomic Sun lamp on a MakerBot. I have to say, it looks more like a viral capsid to me, but I can see why one might want to avoid that as a name. The models are available on Thingiverse.
