A Non-Convex “Bowtie” Polyhedron

To form this polyhedron, I took a rhombic dodecahedron, and augmented each of its twelve sides with additional rhombic dodecahedra, forming a cluster of thirteen of these space-filling polyhedra. I then stellated this cluster thirty-four times, and this was the unexpected result.

The software I used to do this may be found (and tried for free) at http://www.software3d.com/stella.php.

  1. That is a Nice one. If I let my eye “wander” a bit, it looks like the four smaller inverted cubes on the top rotate Backwards and become not inverted.
