A Zonohedron with 1382 Faces, Based on the Rhombicosidodecahedron
This zonohedron was formed from zones based on the faces, edges, and vertices of a rhombicosidodecahedron. The first image shows it colored by face type. The second image has the faces colored by number of sides. Finally, here’s one in … Continue reading

A Compound of Three Trapezohedra
I came across this little beauty while exploring stellations of the triakis octahedron, which is the dual of the truncated cube. Its three components are each eightfaced trapezohedra, and it showed up as the sixth in that stellationseries. Stella 4d: … Continue reading

SpaceFilling Truncated Octahedra in a Rhombic Dodecahedral Cluster
The truncated octahedron is wellknown as the only Archimedean solid which can fill space, by itself, without leaving any gaps. The cluster below shows this, and has the overall shape of a rhombic dodecahedron. It’s easier to see the rhombic … Continue reading
