A Rhombic Dodecahedron, Decorated with Curvy Tessellations

Rhombic Dodeca

The faces of this polyhedron are decorated with the same type of curvy tessellation seen in the last post here, and it was created using Geometer’s Sketchpad and MS-Paint. Projecting these images onto the faces of this rhombic dodecahedron, in different colors, and then creating this rotating images of it, required a third program, Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator. This latter program, an indispensable tool for polyhedral investiagations, may be tried for free, as a trial version, at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
