It’s a little-known fact that rhombicosidodecahedra prefer to fly in flocks of sixty, as seen here. I made this using Stella 4d, available at this website.
I used Geometer’s Sketchpad and MS-Paint to make the designs on the faces, and then assembled the dodecahedron with Stella 4d, a program you may try here.
I made this with Stella 4d, which you can try for yourself at this website.
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

The polyhedron above reminded me of the snub dodecahedron, which is shown below. Both rotating images were made using Stella 4d, which you can try for yourself — with a free trial download available — right here.
This was made using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, a program available here.
