The “Trick Johnson” (?) — A NearMiss Johnson Solid, Surrounded by Hilariously Mistranslated Japanese
I did not discover this polyhedron, although I wish I had, for it has quite a clever design. The page where I found it (poorlytranslated English version, where it’s called the “Trick Johnson,” whatever that means) is at http://www.geocities.jp/ikuro_kotaro/koramu/1053_g2.htm). I generally … Continue reading

NearMiss Candidate Update #2
With some work, I was able to figure out how to make my second nearmiss candidate from two posts ago, using Stella 4d (available here), but the results show it is a “near near miss,” not a near miss. Like … Continue reading

NearMiss Candidate Update #1
With help from friends on Facebook, I was able to figure out how to make the second of the nearmiss candidates in the last post, using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, a program available here. This is quite helpful, for Stella … Continue reading

Two (New?) “NearMiss” Candidates
Yesterday, I played for the first time with GeoMag toys, which I recently purchased. I was quite surprised to have what I believe to be a nearmiss to the Johnson solids appear before me, one I’ve never seen, within just a few … Continue reading

A Second ColoringScheme for the Chiral Tetrated Dodecahedron
For detailed information on this newlydiscovered polyhedron, which is near (or possibly in) the “fuzzy” borderzone between the “nearmisses” (irregularities real, but not visually apparent) and “nearnearmisses” (irregularities barely visible, but there they are) to the Johnson solids, please see … Continue reading
The Chiral Tetrated Dodecahedron: A New NearMiss?
The images above show a new nearmiss (to the Johnson solids) candidate I just found using Stella 4d, software you can try here. Like the original tetrated dodecahedron (a recognized nearmiss shown at left, below), making this polyhedron relies on … Continue reading
A (Possible) New NearMiss to the Johnson Solids
In the polyhedron above, the octagons, hexagons, and triangles are regular. The only irregularities are found in the nearsquares, which are actually isosceles trapezoids with three edges of equal length: the ones shared with the octagons and hexagons. The trapezoidedges … Continue reading
