Sphere Trisection / Dissection, Reid Dissection

3D model description

Sphere Trisection/Dissection: Three Congruent Pieces

Yet another appealing dissection of a sphere into three congruent pieces. This design is based on a Reid dissection of a cube ( It is interesting to embed a sphere in a cube and play with all sorts of manipulations! Of course, it takes three copies to make a sphere. I have included a shelled one, too, just to add more flavor.

### #About Printing

There is a small hanging piece in the part. It prints okay on my printer. If necessary, please add some support. Alternatively, it can be rotated and then printed with support for the spherical bottom.

STEAM educator, learning from and working with K-12 STEAM teachers to explore new ideas of teaching and engagement. I firmly believe ART is at the core of STEM learning or all human learning! I owe my ideas and designs to the hundreds of K-12 children and teachers and university professors I have had the pleasure of working with, in multiple disciplines-- math, science,engineering language arts, social studies, early childhood education and more! All mistakes, of course, are mine! There is no warranty or liability whatsoever implied or explicit behind the designs or ideas. They are all posted for their potential educational values.

When working with children, please strictly observe all safety and health procedures! Please refer to the NSTA safety guides:
