Eight KiteRhombus Solids, Plus Five AllKite Polyhedra — the Convex Hulls of the Thirteen ArchimedeanCatalan Compounds
In a kiterhombus solid, or KRS, all faces are either kites or rhombi, and there are at least some of both of these quadrilateraltypes as faces. I have found eight such polyhedra, all of which are formed by creating the … Continue reading

Standard and Faceted Versions, Side by Side, of Each of the Thirteen Archimedean Solids
These two polyhedra are the truncated tetrahedron on the left, plus at least one faceted version of that same Archimedean solid on the right. As you can see, in each case, the figures have the same set of vertices — … Continue reading

The Archimedean Solid That Isn’t
A common definition for “Archimedean solid” goes like this: Archimedean solids (1) are convex polyhedra, (2) include only faces which are regular, convex, nonintersecting polygons, (3) have more than one type of regular polygon used as faces, and (4) have … Continue reading

Five of the Thirteen Archimedean Solids Have Multiple English Names
I call the polyhedron above the rhombcuboctahedron. Other names for it are the rhombicuboctahedron (note the “i”), the small rhombcuboctahedron, and the small rhombicuboctahedron. Sometimes, the word “small,” when it appears, is put in parentheses. Of these multiple names, all … Continue reading

The Archimedean Solids This is a separate, singlepurpose blog of mine, and it has been completed, meaning no further posts will be made there. It contains rotating images of all thirteen Archimedean solids, including both enantiomers of the two which … Continue reading
