One of Many Possible Facetings of the Rhombicosidodecahedron

Faceted Rhombicosidodeca

To make a faceted version of the rhombicosidodecahedron, one first (1) starts with a rhombicosidodecahedron, one of the Archimedean solids, then (2) removes the faces and edges of this polyhedron, leaving all the vertices in place, and then (3) connects these vertices in a different way than they were connected in the original polyhedron, forming new edges and faces. Faceting is the reciprocal operation to polyhedral stellation.

This polyhedron was made using Stella 4d, software available here.
