A Radial Tessellation Using Three Types of Rhombi

The yellow rhombi have angles of 40 and 140 degrees, while the blue rhombi have angles of 80 and 100 degrees, just like in the last post here. However, that post did not include the red rhombi, which have angles … Continue reading

Eight Kite-Rhombus Solids, Plus Five All-Kite Polyhedra — the Convex Hulls of the Thirteen Archimedean-Catalan Compounds

In a kite-rhombus solid, or KRS, all faces are either kites or rhombi, and there are at least some of both of these quadrilateral-types as faces. I have found eight such polyhedra, all of which are formed by creating the … Continue reading
