An Open Cluster of Polyhedra
From the center to the outside, this cluster contains one icosahedron, twenty octahedra, twenty icosidodecahedra, twenty more octahedra, and, finally, twenty rhombicosidodecahedra. All three of the images here were created using Stella 4d, a program you may try, free, at … Continue reading

The fullerene molecule that gets the most attention is C60, so I’m giving C80 a little bit of the spotlight, for balance. I made this using polyhedral modeling software called Stella 4d; you can try it for yourself at this website.
Icosahedral Cluster
The great icosahedron, one of the KeplerPoinsot solids, is hidden from view at the center of this cluster. Each of its faces is augmented with a Platonic icosahedron, producing what you see here. Stella 4d is the software I used; … Continue reading
