ZigZag: A Faceting of the Great Rhombcuboctahedron
I made this using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator. You can try this program for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
494 Circles, Each, Adorning Two Great Rhombcuboctahedra, with Different (Apparent) Levels of Anxiety
The design on each face of these great rhombcuboctahedra is made from 19 circles, and was created using both Geometer’s Sketchpad and MSPaint. I then used a third program, Stella 4d (available here), to project this image on each … Continue reading

A NonConvex Variant of the Great Rhombcuboctahedron
I made this with Stella 4d, software you can try here.
A Great Rhombcuboctahedron, Decorated with Circles and Hexagons
The images on the faces of this polyhedron were created with Geometer’s Sketchpad and MSPaint. Projecting these images onto these faces, and then creating this rotating image, was accomplished using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator— a program you can try for … Continue reading

Zonohedron Based On the Edges and Vertices of a Great Rhombcuboctahedron
This polyhedral monster has 578 faces of 26 types. In the image above, hexagons of any type are red, rhombi of any type (including squares) are yellow, and the blue faces are octagons. If each facetype is given a different … Continue reading
A 182Faced Convex Hull, with an Explanation of that Term, As It Relates to Polyhedra
I made this polyhedron, using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, by taking the convex hull of a different polyhedron, one not shown here. To those who don’t already know, though, that just raises a question: what does it mean to “take … Continue reading
A ClosePacking of Space, Using Three Different Polyhedra
This is like a tessellation, but in three dimensions, rather than two. The pattern can be repeated to fill all of space, using cubes (yellow), truncated octahedra (blue), and great rhombcuboctahedra, also known as truncated cuboctahedra (red). Software credit: see … Continue reading
