Polyhedron (homeomorphic to a sphere) consisting of equilateral triangles only. If we define the valency of a sphere as the number of rods connected to it, and write the number of spheres with valencies 3, 4, 5, 6, ..., as n3,n4,n5,n6,... , this provides a rudimentary classification: (Note that there may be several shapes with the same signature)

(n3,n4,n5,n6,...)-deltahedron.

(go until the largest valency in your deltahedron)

This deltahedron then contains (n3+n4+n5+n6+...) spheres, and (3.n3+4.n4+5.n5+6.n6+...)/2 rods.

Also, using Euler's formula, it is easy to show that
