Three Views of a Rotating Cluster of 33 Icosidodecahedra
To make these three rotating clusterpolyhedra, 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 Gallery of Two Dozen Polyhedra with Icosidodecahedral Symmetry, with a Few of Them Chiral
Any of these rotating polyhedra may be made larger with a click. I created them using Stella 4d, a program you may try (as a free trial download) at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

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

87 Rotating NonConvex, NonChiral Polyhedral Images Featuring Icosidodecahedral Symmetry, Plus Four Which Snuck In with Cuboctahedral Symmetry — Can You Find All the Intruders?
To see larger versions of any of these, simply click on the images. 24 to this point…. That’s 40 so far… Now the count is at four dozen. That was 26 more, so there are 48 + 26 = 74 … Continue reading
