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 mirrorimage of the polyhedron shown above. Any chiral polyhedron … Continue reading

A Chiral Polyhedron with Tetrahedral Symmetry
The yellow faces of this polyhedron are parallelograms, while the red ones are trapezoids. To demonstrate its chirality, here is the compound of it, and its own mirrorimage. Both of these “virtual polyhedra” were made using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, … Continue reading

The Compound of the Rhombic Dodecahedron and Its Own Third Stellation
I used Stella 4d to make this polyhedral compound, and this program may be tried for free at this website.
Building a “Polyhedral Porcupine”
This is the icosahedron, followed by its first stellation. The first stellation of the icosahedron can be stellated again, and again, and so on. The “final stellation” of the icosahedron is the one right before the stellationseries “wraps around,” back … Continue reading
