A Faceting of the Rhombicosidodecahedron

I made this faceting of the rhombicosidodecahedron using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator. You can try this program out, for free, at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

An Enneacontahedron Made of Hexagons and Rhombi

An enneacontahedron is a polyhedron with ninety faces. There are many such polyhedra. This particular one has sixty hexagonal faces, and thirty rhombic faces. I made it using Stella 4d, a program you can try for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

A Brief Visit to the Eighth Planet, Assisted by Tonight's Crazy Arkansas Weather

The sky bursting full of rapid and illuminated clouds, rushing bright blue against an indigo background, made me feel I was looking up at the planet Neptune, stretching from one horizon to the other. I went inside, to get my phone, to snap a picture, but, when I got back out, the eighth planet above had been replaced — by a stormy-but-normal third-planet sky. I came back inside with no images, except in memory.

Two Images of a Toroidal Rhombic Triacontahedron Made of 212 Dodecahedra

I made these using Stella 4d, a program you can try as a free trial download at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

The Great Icosidodecahedron and Its Dual, the Great Rhombic Triacontahedron

The great icosidodecahedron is one of the uniform polyhedra, which I do not know well. I stumbled across it while creating facetings of the (lesser) icosidodecahedron. This solid has two face-types, there are red pentagrams and yellow equilateral triangles, as seen in the next two pictures.

The dual of this solid is the great rhombic triacontahedron. Its faces are thirty interpenetrating rhombi.

I used Stella 4d to create these images. You may try this program for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
