Eight KiteRhombus Solids, Plus Five AllKite Polyhedra — the Convex Hulls of the Thirteen ArchimedeanCatalan Compounds
In a kiterhombus solid, or KRS, all faces are either kites or rhombi, and there are at least some of both of these quadrilateraltypes as faces. I have found eight such polyhedra, all of which are formed by creating the … Continue reading

Zonohedrified Rhombicosidodecahedron with 870 Rhombic Faces
Manipulating known polyhedra in the effort to find new ones, as I did here, is made easy with Stella 4d, a program available at this website.

A Rhombic Cage
This cage is made of 36 identical rhombi, and has six openings. I made it with Stella 4d, a program available at this website.

Fractiles’ Mandala, Based on Angles of Pi/7 Radians
Although this was based on something I constructed using the Fractiles7 magnetic tiling toy, I did not have enough magnetic pieces to finish this. The idea was, therefore, converted into a (nonEuclidean) construction using Geometer’s Sketchpad, and then refined using … Continue reading

A Rhombic Mandala Based on Pi Over Nine
The interior angles in these rhombi all measure π/9 radians, or some wholenumber multiple of that amount, up to 8π/9 radians.
