The faces of this polyhedron are twelve yellow regular star pentagons, twenty blue equilateral triangles, and thirty golden rectangles, shown in red. I used *Stella 4d* to make this, and you can try this program for free, at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

# A Faceted Version of the Great Rhombicosidodecahedron

I made this using *Stella 4d*, which is available here.

# Two Views of a Faceted Dodecahedron

This is one of many possible facetings of the dodecahedron. It’s colored by face type above, and is shown in “rainbow color mode” below. I made both rotating images using *Stella 4d*, which you can try for free at this website.

# One of Many Facetings of the Icosidodecahedron

I created this using *Stella 4d*, software you can try right here.

# A Faceted Truncated Icosahedron With 32 Faces

This faces of this polyhedron include 12 regular pentagons, and twenty 6/2-gons. I made it using *Stella 4d*, which you can try for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

# A Faceting of the Great Rhombicosidodecahedron

I made this from the Archimedean Great Rhombicosidodecahedron, using a program called *Stella 4d*. If you’d like to try *Stella* for yourself, you can do so, for free, at this website: http://www.software3.com/Stella.php.

# A Faceted Rhombicosidodecahedron with 540 Faces

This beauty appeared unexpectedly when I was playing around with polyhedra related to the icosahedron and dodecahedron, using *Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator*. You can try this program for yourself, free, at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

# A Faceted Truncated Octahedron with Twenty Faces

The twenty faces of this polyhedron are six small blue squares, six interpenetrating, larger red squares, and eight irregular, interpenetrating yellow hexagons. I made it using *Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator*, which you can try for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php. The squares are easy to find, but it can be a challenge to see the yellow hexagons. In the .gif below, all of the yellow faces but one are hidden, which should make it easier to see where the hexagons are positioned, relative to the squares.
