This is thesis project page of Elizabeth Slavkovsky who wrote
this thesis towards a masters in the
Graduate program for Mathematics for teaching.
The thesis subject is on 3D printing (a special case of rapid prototyping)
in education and has the title:
: Click on the white pictures to get the STL file which can be 3D printed.
To see the Mathematica code which produced the pictures, see here
First the Archimedean solids (Happy 2300 year birthday Archimedes!) and then the Catalan solids:
