These Lego Technic "Truncated Octahedrons" ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Truncated_octahedron   ) are made of only a few different Lego Technic parts.  They form a sphere shape having 6 square sides and 8 hexagonal sides.  For the innermost (yellow) Octahedron, the Lego Digital Designer (LDD) .lxf Building Instructions and Parts List can be found via https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/36838496752/in/datetaken-public/ .  The lengths of the Technic Axles increase by 2 studs (2L) in each successive layer; in theory one could keep making larger and larger Octahedrons forever!
