A Faceting of the Rhombicosidodecahedron

I made this faceting of the rhombicosidodecahedron using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator. You can try this program out, for free, at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

Simulated Geomag Rhombicosidodecahedron

This rhombicosidodecahedron appears to be made from Geomag pieces, but, in reality, it was made virtually using a program called Stella 4d. You may try Stella, for free, at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

The Dual of a Geodesic Rhombicosidodecahedron

This polyhedron has, as faces, a dozen regular pentagons, thirty rhombi, and sixty irregular heptagons. I made this using Stella 4d, which is available as a free trial download at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

A Rhombicosidodecahedron, with the Square Faces Rendered Invisible

This polyhedron’s square faces are hidden from view, so that you can see both the front and back of the solid as it rotates. I made this using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, which you can try for yourself, free, at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.


The Eighteenth Stellation of the Rhombicosidodecahedron Is an Interesting Polyhedral Compound

Rhombicosidodeca 18th stellation and an interesting compound

The 18th stellation of the rhombicosidodecahedron, shown above, is also an interesting compound. The yellow component of this compound is the rhombic triacontahedron, and the blue-and-red component is a “stretched” form of the truncated icosahedron. 

This was made using Stella 4d, which you can try for free right here.
