I want to make a dodecahedron

Well I did it a different way but it looks right to me. I made it a solid in model mode. you should be able to download it from teh link.

Extruding a pentagon with a draft angle is the key. I will work on makeing a screencast.

Using some trig from the internet I wrote some expressions that can be found under Modify/ Change Parameters

The Dodecahedron

The Dodecahedron

The dodecahedron has 30 edges, 20 vertices and 12 faces. Dodeca is a prefix meaning “twelve.”

The dodecahedron is the only polyhedron I know of which is composed entirely of pentagons.
Buckminster Fuller describes what he calls a '6 pentagonal tensegrity sphere' in Synergetics I, 726.01, and which is shown at Marvin Solit's website at www.fnd.org/geo.htm, but I don't believe that structure can be built without tensegrity struts and tension wires.
