I used Stella 4d to make this polyhedral compound, and this program may be tried for free at this website.
Created using Stella 4d, a program available at this website: http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
I made this using Stella 4d, software you can find at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php. I also make a second version, with larger spheres and cylinders for the vertices and edges:
As it turns out, eight icosahedra form this rhombic ring, by augmentation: Measured from the centers of these icosahedra, the long and short diagonal of this rhombus are in a (√2):1 ratio. How do I know this? Because that’s the … Continue reading
Various Views of Three Different Polyhedral Compounds: Those of (1) Five Cuboctahedra, (2) Five of Its Dual, the Rhombic Dodecahedron, and (3) Ten Components — Five Each, of Both Polyhedra.
Polyhedral compounds differ in the amount of effort needed to understand their internal structure, as well as the way the compounds’ components are assembled, relative to each other. This compound, the compound of five cuboctahedra, and those related to it, … Continue reading
