Cluster of Six Rhombicosidodecahedra
To make this cluster, start with a cuboctahedron, then augment each of its square faces with rhombicosidodecahedra. Although the cuboctahedron has cuboctahedral symmetry, this cluster does not — rather, it has tetrahedral symmetry. I created this using Stella 4d, which … Continue reading

Bowtie Cubes in a Polyhedral Honeycomb
This polyhedron has been described here as a “bowtie cube.” It is possible to augment its six dodecagonal faces with additional bowtie cubes. Also, the bowtie cube’s hexagonal faces may be augmented by truncated octahedra. These two polyhedra “tessellate” space, together … Continue reading
