A Dodecahedron Made of Lux Blox . . . or Is It a Rhombicosidodecahedron?

This is the third polyhedral model I’ve built with Lux Blox, and the first to use the Lux trigons (the black pieces) which were added to the Lux system in 2017. If you view this polyhedron as having orange pentagonal faces, white edges, and black vertices, it’s a dodecahedron. On the other hand, it can be seen as having orange pentagonal faces, white square faces, and black triangular faces, in which case this is a rhombicosidodecahedron.

Lots of us are stuck inside because of COVID-19, and a set of Lux Blox is the perfect tool (or toy, if you prefer) to avoid boredom while we wait this thing out. You can find Lux for sale at www.luxblox.com, and delivery is fast.

  1. Hello Robert. Thank you for letting curious people like me see these beautiful shapes in real life. Have you been doing many new things lately because of the pandemic?

    Greetings from the Netherlands. 🙂

    • Well, for a while now, the thing I’m doing differently in my free time is playing with Lux Blox! =) As for work time, we’re doing school online (I’m the teacher) at least through the end of the year — so I’m working from home.
