Gravity Well Study

Currently I am preparing studies for two new designs, Gravity Well and Waves.  Gravity Well consists of my icosahedron connected to and sitting within a larger bowl-like structure.  Neither the bowl nor the icosahedron are particularly challenging but the connection between the two, with 20 connections coming together in a point, did require testing.  After all, given the estimated 100 hours to fold the entire piece, a failure would be rather unwelcome.  The connection actually ended up being strong enough to support the five lilies balanced above, but any hope of supporting an entire icosahedron on the connection is now lost.  Which, to be fair, was a rather impossible dream.
