Three Views of a Rotating Cluster of 33 Icosidodecahedra
To make these three rotating clusterpolyhedra, I started with one icosidodecahedron in the center, then augmented each of its 32 faces with overlapping, additional icosidodecahedra, for a total of 33 icosidodecahedra per cluster. In the first image, only two colors are … Continue reading

An Open Cluster of Polyhedra
From the center to the outside, this cluster contains one icosahedron, twenty octahedra, twenty icosidodecahedra, twenty more octahedra, and, finally, twenty rhombicosidodecahedra. All three of the images here were created using Stella 4d, a program you may try, free, at … Continue reading

A Festive Cluster of Polyhedra
This is what you get if you start with an icosahedron, augment each of its faces with tetrahedra, and then augment the tetrahedral faces with octahedra. I made it using Stella 4d, a program you may try for free at … Continue reading

Icosahedral Cluster
The great icosahedron, one of the KeplerPoinsot solids, is hidden from view at the center of this cluster. Each of its faces is augmented with a Platonic icosahedron, producing what you see here. Stella 4d is the software I used; … Continue reading

Two Different ClusterPolyhedra
An icosahedron is hidden from view in the center of this clusterpolyhedron. To create the cluster, each of the icosahedron’s triangles was augmented with a rhombicosidodecahedron. The resulting cluster has the overall shape of a dodecahedron. To create the next … Continue reading

Two Views of an Icosahedron, Augmented with Great Icosahedra
If colored by facetype, based on faceposition in the overall solid, this “cluster” polyhedron looks like this: There is another interesting view of this polyhedral cluster I like marginally better, though, and that is to separate the faces into colorgroups … Continue reading
