Six Zonohedra

Zonohedra are a subset of polyhedra. In a zonohedron, all the faces are zonogons. A zonogon is a polygon with an even number of sides, as well as having opposite sides both congruent and parallel. This small collection of rotating zonohedra was made using Stella 4d, a program you can try for yourself at this website.

Also, if you want to see a larger version of any one of these zonohedra, simply click on it.

A Polyhedron Featuring 42 Regular Decagons

In addition to the 42 regular decagons, the faces of this polyhedron include twenty equilateral triangles, sixty yellow trapezoids, and sixty blue trapezoids. That’s 182 faces in all.

The next picture shows what happens if all of the decagons have the same color, the triangles have another, and the trapezoids are hidden from view.
