Augmenting the Octahedron with Octahedra, Repeatedly.
This is an octahedron. If you augment each face of an octahedron with more octahedra, you end up with this. One can then augment each triangular face of this with yet more octahedra. Here’s the next iteration: This could, of … Continue reading

The Compound of Five Cubes, Augmented with Thirty Snub Cubes: Three Versions
This clusterpolyhedron was made with Stella 4d, software you can try at this website. Above, it is colored by facetype, referring to each face’s position within the overall cluster. In the image below, the original compound of five cubes contained … Continue reading

A Polyhedral Investigation, Starting with an Augmentation of the Truncated Octahedron
If one starts with a central truncated octahedron, leaves its six square faces untouched, and augments its eight hexagonal faces with trianglular cupolae, this is the result. Seeing this, I did a quick check of its dual, and found it … Continue reading

A Cluster of Nine Octahedra, and Related Polyhedra
If one starts with a central octahedron, then augments each of its eight triangular faces with identical octahedra, this is the result. It is then possible to augment each visible triangle of this cluster with yet more octahedra, which produces … Continue reading

An Experiment Involving Augmentation of Octahedra with More Octahedra, Etc.
I’m going to start this experiment with a single octahedron, with faces in two colors, placed so that two faces which share an edge are always of different colors. Next, I will augment the red faces — and only the … Continue reading

A Polyhedral Journey, Beginning with FaceBased Zonohedrification of an Icosahedron
To begin this, I took an icosahedron, and made a zonish polyhedron with it, with the new faces based on the zones of the existing faces. Here’s the result. Next, I started stellating the polyhedron above. At the sixth stellation, … Continue reading

A Simulation of Crystalline Growth Using Polyhedral Augmentation
Crystals and crystalline growth have been studied for centuries because of, at least in part, their symmetry. Crystals are cut in such a way as to increase this symmetry even more, because most people find symmetry attractive. However, where does … Continue reading
