The Eighteenth Stellation of the Rhombicosidodecahedron Is an Interesting Polyhedral Compound
The 18th stellation of the icosidodecahedron, shown above, is also an interesting compound. The yellow component of this compound is the rhombic triacontahedron, and the blueandred component is a “stretched” form of the truncated icosahedron. This was made using Stella … Continue reading

Using Rhombic Triacontahedra to Build an Icosidodecahedron
These two polyhedra are the icosidodecahedron (left), and its dual, the rhombic triacontahedron (right). One nice thing about these two polyhedra is that one of them, the rhombic triacontahedron, can be used repeatedly, as a buildingblock, to build the other … Continue reading

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
