Step 1. Create yourself a rather nice Dodecahedron.

Step 2. To help it keep its shape, add some support.

Step 3. Start poking the rods through creating a pyramid at a time inside the dodecahedron (make sure you use the main points not the support points)

Step 4. Remove your outer dodecahedron and marvel at your genius 8-) :lol:

Yeah, this is so nice. I wish we could build it with the longer KIDS rods too..

Incidentally, the exterior support grid I use is the complete opposite of yours. Basically what is seen on your second photo minus what is seen on the first photo, then slightly inflated. AKA the Rhombic Triacontahedron. Ref. Golden Rhombus

That looks so cool. I can't figure out how to make it though.
