It is just a guess, but my guess is that without a big budget to investigate the dodecahedron, Rick has gone with what he knows can be built based on a configuration he has scaling data for, hence the low budget, low risk design.
Near term, cheap, dark horse fusion hits the air waves, GF - TED, LM - Announcement. The race is on.

Part of the idea of building a dodec at the same scale as WB-7 was to see if the improved reaction rate matched what the model said would result from being closer to spherical. The improvement was supposed to be something like 3-5 x better. That would then guide the design choices in the 100 MW demo.

In fact, a factor of 3-5 could be made up by making the devices just a pinch larger. The success of the demo reactor will not be judged by a factor of 3-5. If it makes only 20 MW instead of 100 MW, but you know you can expand it 10% and make up the difference, no big deal. If a cubic WB-D comes in a little low, they know they have a few tricks left, including a dodec magrid.

If WB-D makes 100 W instead of 100 MW, then you have a problem.
