Three Views of a Rotating Cluster of 33 Icosidodecahedra

To make these three rotating cluster-polyhedra, I started with one icosidodecahedron in the center, then augmented each of its 32 faces with overlapping, additional icosidodecahedra, for a total of 33 icosidodecahedra per cluster. In the first image, only two colors are … Continue reading

A Tetrahedral Exploration of the Icosahedron

Mathematicians have discovered more than one set of rules for polyhedral stellation. The software I use for rapidly manipulating polyhedra (Stella 4d, available here, including as a free trial download) lets the user choose between different sets of stellation criteria, … Continue reading

Sixteen Convex Polyhedra Featuring Icosidodecahedral Symmetry

To enlarge any single image, simply click on it. Of the five polyhedra above, all appear to feature decagons. Upon close inspection, though, one of them actually features icosagons — with half their sides very short. Can you spot this … Continue reading
