These were all created using Stella 4d, a program you can try — for free — at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
I created this using Stella 4d, which you can try for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php. Starting with the Platonic dodecahedron, I dropped the symmetry of the model down from icosahedral to tetrahedral, then stellated it six times. I also put the resulting polyhedron into “rainbow color mode” before making this .gif image.
Each of these polyhedral images (any of which may be enlarged with a click) was created using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, and this program may be tried for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
Also, a question, for regular readers of my blog — you have probably noticed that this post has a different format, but it’s just an experimental thing I’m trying out.
Do you prefer this style of polyhedra-post, or the format I usually use?
All of these were made using Stella 4d, a program you can try for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
Created with Stella 4d, available here.
I used Stella 4d to make the polyhedron above, and you can try this software for yourself here.
My guess is that this is a faceting of the cuboctahedron, but I didn’t use faceting when I made it with Stella 4d (a program you can try here), so I am not sure about this. Based on its appearance, however, it is clearly related, in some manner, to the cuboctahedron, for the cuboctahedron is its convex hull.
