One of Many Possible Facetings of the Rhombic Triacontahedron
The simplest way I can explain faceting is that it takes a familiar polyhedron’s vertices, and then connects them in unusual ways, so that you obtain different edges and faces. If you take the convex hull of a faceted polyhedron, … Continue reading

92 Dodecahedra, Arranged as a Single Rhombic Triacontahedron
With 92 dodecahedra, if you arrange them just right, you can make a model of a rhombic triacontahedron: For purposes of comparison, here is what the rhombic triacontahedron normally looks like: Also, referring back to the first model shown, here … Continue reading

The Final Stellation of the Rhombic Triacontahedron, Together with Its Dual, a Faceting of the Icosidodecahedron
Sharpeyed, regular readers of this blog will notice that this is the same polyhedron shown in the previous post, which was described as the “final stellation of the compound of five cubes,” due to the coloring scheme used in the … Continue reading

A Compound of an Icosahedron and the First Stellation of the Rhombic Triacontahedron
I made this compound using software called Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator. This program may be purchased (or a trial download tried for free) at this website.

Two Versions of a Slowly Rotating Rhombic Triacontahedron, Adorned with Spectral Patterns on Each Face
It took three programs to make this. First, outlines of the “double rainbow” patterns on each face were constructed using Geometer’s Sketchpad. A screenshot from that program was then pasted into MSPaint, which was used to add color to the … Continue reading
