A Pyritohedral, Stellated Polyhedron, and Its Convex Hull
To make this polyhedron using Stella 4d (available here), I began with the dodecahedron, dropped the symmetry of the model from icosahedral to tetrahedral, and then stellated it thirteen times. This stellated polyhedron has pyritohedral symmetry, but this is easier … Continue reading

A Tetrahedral Exploration of the Icosahedron
Mathematicians have discovered more than one set of rules for polyhedral stellation. The software I use for rapidly manipulating polyhedra (Stella 4d, available here, including as a free trial download) lets the user choose between different sets of stellation criteria, … Continue reading

A Pyritohedral and PentagonFaced Polyhedron
Twelve of the faces of this polyhedron are pink, and the other twentyfour are blue. It has no faces which are not pentagons. I made it using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, which is avialable at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

A Large Collection of Polyhedra with Pyritohedral Symmetry, Some of Them Chiral
It’s quite an informal way to define it, but pyritohedral symmetry is the symmetrytype of a standard volleyball. These images of pyritohedral polyhedra were made using Stella 4d, software available at http://software3d.com/Stella.php.
