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 Great Icosahedron, Augmented with Twenty Icosahedra
The polyhedral clusters above and below use different coloringschemes, but are otherwise identical. Invisible, in the center, is a great icosahedron. Each of its faces has been augmented by a (Platonic) icosahedron. Both images were created using Stella 4d, software … Continue reading

The Greatly Augmented Rhombicosidodecahedron
I call this variant on the rhombicosidocahedron “greatly augmented” because it was formed by augmenting each pentagonal face of a central rhombicosidodecahedron with great dodecahedra, while each triangular face is augmented with great icosahedra. It was made using Stella 4d, … Continue reading

Icosidodecahedra, Icosahedra, and Dodecahedra
If one starts with a single icosidodecahedron, and then augments its pentagonal faces with dodecahedra, and its trianguar faces with icosahedra, this is the result. This figure has gaps in it where two pentagons and two triangles meet around a … Continue reading

An Icosahedron, Augmented with Twenty Triangular Cupolae, Together with Its Dual
After making the above polyhedron using Stella 4d (a program you can try for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php), I checked its dual, which is shown below. I was surprised at its appearance, for it resembles a stellated polyhedron, even though it … Continue reading
