I'm getting to like doing 3D pieces. Here's my latest effort:

Assembly was similar to the Octahedron I did before, but just a little bit more complicated. This time, there are six triangular pieces. Note that the triangles cannot be equilateral triangles. To tape the pieces together, I started with the short edges lined up in a straight line. I then folded the top and botton corners together. During the soldering step, I found it useful to support the piece with my roll of duct tape.

I've been putting off completion of a votive candle holder. I suppose it's time I got back to that project. But I rather enjoy doing these geometric shapes.
