A Compound of the Great Stellated Dodecahedron and the Great Dodecahedron

In the picture above, each component of this compound has its own color. In the one below, each set of parallel faces is given a color of its own. These images were made using Stella 4d, software you may try … Continue reading

Three Versions of a Compound of the Great and Small Stellated Dodecahedra

In the first version of this compound shown here, the great stellated dodecahedron is shown in yellow, while the small stellated dodecahedron is shown in red. In the next version, each face has its own color, except for those in … Continue reading

Augmenting the Dodecahedron with Great Dodecahedra

These two polyhedra are the dodecahedron (left), and the great dodecahedron (right). Since the faces of both of these polyhedra are regular pentagons, it is possible to augment each of the dodecahedron’s twelve faces with a great dodecahedron. Here is … Continue reading

An Offspring of a Dodecahedron and a Tetrahedron

To make this polyhedron, I first changed the symmetry-type of a dodecahedron from icosahedral to tetrahedral, then stellated it twice. This was done using Stella 4d, a program you may try for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

Creating a New Polyhedron from the Snub Dodecahedron

Shown below are the snub dodecahedron and its dual, the pentagonal hexecontahedron. Seeking a way to make a “new” polyhedron (one never seen before), I augmented each face of the orange dual, above, with prisms. These prisms have a height … Continue reading

Selected Stellations of the Truncated Dodecahedron

This is the truncated dodecahedron. It is one of the Archimedean solids. This polyhedron has a long stellation-series, from which I selected several on aesthetic grounds. The figure immediately below is the truncated dodecahedron’s 16th stellation. Here is the 21st … Continue reading
