Two Different Cluster-Polyhedra

Augmented Icosa with RIDs

An icosahedron is hidden from view in the center of this cluster-polyhedron. 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 cluster-polyhedron, I started with the one above, and then augmented each of its triangular faces with icosidodecahedra.

I used a program named Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator to create these cluster-polyhedra. This software may be bought (or tried for free) at this website
