Expanded Truncated Icosahedron

Expanded Truncated Icosahedron

To create this polyhedron, I started with a truncated icosahedron (soccer ball shape), then augmented each face with prisms, then took the convex hull of the resulting non-convex figure.

All of this was done in about two minutes with Stella 4d, a program which makes manipulating polyhedra both quick and easy. You can try it here: http://www.software3d.com/stella.php.
