If I've tried this once, I've tried it at least fifty-five times….

It’s hard to get regular pentagons, regular star pentagons, regular decagons, and related polygons to tessellate the plane while maintaining radial symmetry. This is my latest attempt.

The 5/2, 5/2 Duoprism

I made this duoprism, a four-dimensional polytope, using Stella 4d. You can try this program for yourself, free, at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

A Non-convex, Pyritohedral Dodecahedron with Non-convex Pentagonal Faces

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.

Stars, Pentagons, and Rhombi #2

This is an expansion of the last post here. It may be possible to continue this tiling outward indefnitely, forming an aperioidic tiling — or it may not. I am simply uncertain about this
