Two Dozen Kites Each, in Three Sets, as Faces of a Polyhedron
This was created using Stella 4d, a program you can buy, or try for free, at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
Five Polyhedra Featuring Kites, as Well as Other Polygons, as Faces
Software credit: I used Stella 4d (available at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php) to create these polyhedral images.
An Oblique Truncation of the Tetrahedron
This polyhedron has sixteen faces: four equilateral triangles, and a dozen kites. It was created using Stella 4d, which may be found at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

A Polyhedron Featuring 180 Kites as Faces, Plus Related Polyhedra
If one starts with the great rhombicosidodecahedron, then makes a compound of it, and its dual, and then forms the convex hull of that compound, this is the result: This polyhedron has 180 faces, all of them kites. What’s more, … Continue reading
Flying Kites into the Snub Dodecahedron, a Dozen at a Time, Using Tetrahedral Stellation
I’ve been shown, by the program’s creator, a function of Stella 4d which was previously unknown to me, and I’ve been having fun playing around with it. It works like this: you start with a polyhedron with, say, icosidodecahedral symmetry, … Continue reading

A KiteFaced Polyhedron Based on the Cube, Octahedron, and Rhombic Dodecahedron
Above is the entire figure, showing all three set of kites. The yellow set below, though, lie along the edges of a rhombic dodecahedron. The next set, the blue kites, lie along the edges of an octahedron. Finally, the red … Continue reading
