A Flock of Rhombicosidodecahedra
It’s a littleknown fact that rhombicosidodecahedra prefer to fly in flocks of sixty, as seen here. I made this using Stella 4d, available at this website.

Cluster of Six Rhombicosidodecahedra
To make this cluster, start with a cuboctahedron, then augment each of its square faces with rhombicosidodecahedra. Although the cuboctahedron has cuboctahedral symmetry, this cluster does not — rather, it has tetrahedral symmetry. I created this using Stella 4d, which … Continue reading

Trinary Rhombicosidodecahedra
This image of three rhombicosidodecahedra “orbiting” a common center was made with Stella 4d, a program you may try for free at this website.

A Rhombicosidodecahedron, Made of Rhombicosidodecahedra
This “metarhombicosidodecahedron” took a long time to build, using Stella 4d, which you can find at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php — so, when I finished it, I made five different versions of it, by altering the coloring settings. I hope you like it.

Rhombicosidodecahedral Cluster of Rhombic Triacontahedra
Since rhombic triacontahedra can form pentagonal rings, triangular rings, and square rings, I wanted to find out if a rhombicosidodecahedron could be built out of these building blocks. As you can see here, the attempt was a success. Each rhombic … Continue reading
