A Symmetrohedron Derived From the Great Rhombicosidodecahedron

This solid has all the faces of the great rhombicosidodecahedron, plus 120 scalene triangles. I made it using Stella 4d, which you can try for free right here.

Kepler’s “Stella Octangula,” With Ten Variants

Here’s Johonnes Kepler’s Stella Octangula — also known as the compound of two tetrahedra.

What follows are ten variants of this solid, all made using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, which you can try for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

Regular Octadecagons As Faces of Symmetrohedra

I tried to make a symmetrohedron using regular octadecagons and regular decagons, but that combination forces the octadecagons to overlap, and that causes the would-be symmetrohedron to be non-convex.

I tried to augment these octadecagons with antiprisms, and then form the convex hull of the result. Here’s what I found:

I made these using Stella 4d, which you can try for free right here.
