The Cubic Rhombicosidodecahedroid
I call the polyhedron above the cubic rhombicosidodecahedroid because it combines a cube’s six squares (shown in green) with the overall appearance of a rhombicosidodecahedron. For comparison, the latter two polyhedra are shown below. I made these rotating images using … Continue reading

Some Tetrahedral Stellations of the Truncated Cube
I created these with Stella 4d, which you may try for free at this website. To make a given polyhedral stellation appear larger, simply click on it.

The Truncated Cube, with Two Variations Featuring Regular Dodecagons
This is the truncated cube, one of the thirteen Archimedean solids. If the truncationplanes are shifted, and increased in number, in just the right way, this variation is produced. Its purple faces are regular dodecagons, and the orange faces are … Continue reading

For me, geometry for breakfast is not unusual. This morning, though, I’m sprinkling calculus on top before eating it.
It’s important to explain, right up front, that Ronald Reagan was president when I last took calculus. However, I have a new determination to learn the subject. I have a hunch this may go better without the “help” of actually … Continue reading
Open Octahedral Lattice of Cubes and Rhombicosidodecahedra
This pattern could be continued, indefinitely, into space. Here is a second view, in rainbow color mode, and with all the squares hidden. [These images were created with Stella 4d, software you may buy — or try for free — … Continue reading

Six “Cubish” Polyhedra
I’m using the term “cubish polyhedra” here to refer to polyhedra which resemble a cube, if one looks only at the faces they have which feature the largest number of sides, always six in number, and with positions corresponding to … 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
