Hello folks.
Wondered if anyone would have an answer to this mystery.
Earlier I have made 2 skewed, 6 sided boxes, or bowls.
The skewed angle I have used was 6 degrees, and they have fitted perfectly together.
Then I would try 22.5 degrees, still 6 sides, 60 degree angles.
But now there are 2 large gaps, opposite each other inside the box, or rather, the bowl.
Strangely, when one side is removed, and there are 5 left, the fit is almost perfect.
All measurements and angles are double checked, everything is equal.
Is the misfit due to the larger angle of 22.5 in relation to only 6 degrees?
And what is the largest ,skewed angle possible , were the 6 sides will still fit?
