How can I create this shape with the ordinary (default) components of grasshopper that can be rendered?
this is not really a pattern.
- an icosaedron surely subdivided (mesh ico sphere, subdivision =2): pipe the edge + sphere on the vertices
- a cube.
A white background
I used here my plugin.

You are nice, sir
I admire such the proficiency and knowledge
Thank you so much for your instruction

and if you do want to explore other polyhedra - RhinoPolyhedra has many
edit - an alternative way without the mystery numbers

actually, just noticed I gave a different polyhedron. The one in the original image is

MeshSphere is a rhino command since V7

That is the same object with a different method, and both are useful for me to learn grasshopper more. The only difference is that method of senior Laurent Delrieu is perfect because of turning the lines and points into solid pipes and spheres with the same color. With that method, I learn how to change the lines and points into solid shape in grasshopper and also use material and color.
Both methods of you masters are admirable.
But the shape I sent has triangular faces, while the segments of MeshSphere are quadrilateral?
There is an option named triangle. Read the documentation to the end. You will have the explanation
Yes, I understood
Thank you a bunch
