Some Stellations of the Truncated Dodecahedron
The stellationseries of the truncated dodecahedron contains some interesting polyhedra. Selections from this series appear below. The polyhedron above is the 24th stellation of the truncated dodecahedron, while the one below is the 25th stellation. The polyhedron immediately above is the truncated … Continue reading

The 11th, 13th, and 15th Stellations of the Icosahedron
First, this is the 11th stellation. Next, the 13th: And, finally, the 15th stellation of the icosahedron: I used Stella 4d, which you can find here, to make these.

Two Different ClusterPolyhedra
An icosahedron is hidden from view in the center of this clusterpolyhedron. To create the cluster, each of the icosahedron’s triangles was augmented with a rhombicosidodecahedron. The resulting cluster has the overall shape of a dodecahedron. To create the next … Continue reading

An Expansion of the Rhombic Enneacontahedron with 422 Faces, Together with Its 360Faced Dual
The polyhedron above had 422 faces and 360 vertices. In dual polyhedra, these numbers are reversed, so the next polyhedra (the dual of the first one) has 360 faces and 422 vertices. Both were created using Stella 4d, available here.
