Polyhedron Featuring Eighty Regular Hexacontagons in the Pattern of the Triangles of a Snub Dodecahedron

Polyhedron Featuring Eighty Regular Hexacontagons in the Pattern of the Triangles of a Snub Dodecahedron

To make this, I attached tall pyramids (by their vertices) to the centers of the triangular faces of a snub dodecahedron. These pyramids have bases which are regular polygons with sixty sides each. After that modification of a snub dodecahedron, I took the convex hull of the result.

Just like the snub dodecahedron upon which this is based, this polyhedron is chiral. For any chiral polyhedron, Stella 4d (the software I use to make most of the images on this blog) will allow you to quickly make a compound of the polyhedron and its mirror image. When I did that, I obtained this result.

Compound of enantiomorphic pair
