The Compound of the Octahedron and the Small Stellated Dodecahedron

I made this rotating virtual model using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, which you can try for yourself at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php. This solid is different from most two-part polyhedral compounds because an unusually high fraction of one polyhedron, the yellow octahedron, is … Continue reading

Some Ten-Part Polyhedral Compounds

While examining different facetings of the dodecahedron, I stumbled across one which is also a compound of ten elongated octahedra. Here’s what this compound looks like with the edges and vertices hidden: Next, I’ll put the edges and vertices back, … Continue reading

The 43rd Stellation of the Snub Dodecahedron, and Related Polyhedra, Part One

If you stellate the snub dodecahedron 43 times, this is the result. The yellow faces are kites, not rhombi. Like the snub dodecahedron itself, this polyhedron is chiral. Here is the mirror-image of the polyhedron shown above. Any chiral polyhedron … Continue reading
