Truncating the Rhombic Triacontahedron

This is the rhombic triacontahedron, one of the Catalan solids.

Now here’s the same polyhedron, but with the three-valent vertices truncated, exposing twenty triangular faces.

Here’s what it looks like with only the twelve five-valent vertices truncated.

Finally, here’s the fully truncated rhombic triacontahedron.

I created these polyhedra using Stella 4d, a program you can try for free right here.
