Three Different Views of a 962-Faced Zonohedron

This zonohedron contains faces which are regular decagons (12 of them), equilateral octagons (30, all of the same type), equilateral hexagons (380 of them, of 7 types, with one of these 7 types, of which there are 20, being regular), squares (60), and non-square rhombi (480 of 8 types, counting reflections as separate types). With each polygon-type, including the reflections, given a different color, this zonohedron looks like this.

If reflected face-types are not counted as separate types, then the coloring-by-face-type uses four fewer colors, and looks like this:

Another view simply colors faces by numbers of sides, and is shown below. Each of these rotating images was created with Stella 4d, a program you may buy, or try for free, at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
