A Geodesic Sphere is a a spherical convex polyhedron made of triangles that are arranged in a way that creates a series of hexagons and pentagons. Setting the frequency to 1 will result in a icosahedron polyhedron with 20 faces.

The geodesic sphere has a very distinctive appearance. The use of triangles in the design provides excellent strength and stability, making it a popular choice for for a wide range of architectural and engineering applications.

The Geodesic Sphere’s unique geometry makes it an excellent choice for creating domes, greenhouses, or other structures that require a strong, lightweight frame.

It can also be used as a decorative element in a variety of settings, including art installations, sculptures, and interactive exhibits.
Processing steps (work in progress)
This is a first version of an idea I had. You can add different modifiers to the generated shape. Currently there is only the drilling machine that can drill a whole in the center of the shape.
