Estelle encounters a buckyball monster!
Why can't I make shit like that with my buckyball? I wanted to make a star too, but the positives and negatives get all wonky and I'm left with some stupid shitty warped thing....
It's not that hard, you just have to make the building blocks first. I recommend starting with hexagons (from a loop of 18 balls) because they're easier to mess around with. They're super stable structures that bond to each other more weakly than within the hexagon, so you can link and unlink them as much as you want while you just play around.
The other major building structure is the triangle (made from 9 balls), but they actually take some planning ahead. Once you've bonded a couple triangles together it's really hard to get them apart without deforming them and probably ruining the thing you're making so it's a lot harder to just mess around with them. Though I did make the legs from loops of triangles but that's a pretty simple structure.
