The Compound of the Octahedron and the Small Stellated Dodecahedron
I made this rotating virtual model using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, which you can try for yourself at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php. This solid is different from most twopart polyhedral compounds because an unusually high fraction of one polyhedron, the yellow octahedron, is … Continue reading

Some TenPart Polyhedral Compounds
While examining different facetings of the dodecahedron, I stumbled across one which is also a compound of ten elongated octahedra. Here’s what this compound looks like with the edges and vertices hidden: Next, I’ll put the edges and vertices back, … Continue reading

A Compound of an Octahedron and a Pyritohedral Dodecahedron
I made this using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator. You can try this program for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

Honeycomb Made of Cuboctahedra and Octahedra
This is the threedimensional version of what is called a tessellation in two dimensions. It fills space, and can be continued in all directions. Software used: Stella 4d, available here.

Augmenting the Octahedron with Octahedra, Repeatedly.
This is an octahedron. If you augment each face of an octahedron with more octahedra, you end up with this. One can then augment each triangular face of this with yet more octahedra. Here’s the next iteration: This could, of … Continue reading

A Crinkled Octahedron
“Crinkled” is merely descriptive; I offer no mathematical definition of the term. This was a polyhedron I stumbled along while doing randomwalk polyhedral manipulations with Stella 4d, available at this website.

Hexastar Octahedron
I wish I remembered exactly how I made this polyhedron, but I don’t. I found it during a “random walk” polyhedral exploration using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, software you can buy, or try for free, here.
