Three Views of a Rotating Cluster of 33 Icosidodecahedra

33-icosidodeca

To make these three rotating cluster-polyhedra, I started with one icosidodecahedron in the center, then augmented each of its 32 faces with overlapping, additional icosidodecahedra, for a total of 33 icosidodecahedra per cluster. In the first image, only two colors are used: one for the triangular faces, and another for the pentagons. The second version, however, has the colors assigned by face-type, which is determined by each face’s placement in the overall cluster.

For the third version, I simply put Stella 4d (the program I use to make these images) into “rainbow color mode.” If you’d like to give Stella 4d a try, you can do so for free at this website.
