A Polyhedron Made of Enneagons and Pentagons
This polyhedron has 20 enneagons and 12+60=72 pentagons (of two types) as faces. I made it using Stella 4d, which is available at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

Three Convex Polyhedra with Tetrahedral Symmetry, Each Featuring Four Regular Enneagons
In addition to the four regular enneagons, the polyhedron above also has rhombi and isosceles triangles as faces. The next one, however, adds equilateral triangles, instead, to the four regular enneagons, along with trapezoids and rectangles. Only the last of … Continue reading
