An Expanded Version of the Snub Cube

To make this polyhedron, I started with a snub cube. Next, I augmented all triangular faces of it with prisms, then took the convex hull of the result. Finally, I used Stella 4d‘s “try to make faces regular” function on the … Continue reading

Compounds of Enantiamorphic Archimedean Solid Duals

An enantiomorphic-pair compound requires a chiral polyhedron, for it is a compound of a polyhedron and its mirror image. Among the Archimedeans, only the snub cube and snub dodecahedron are chiral. For this reason, only threir duals are chiral, among … Continue reading

A Polyhedral Journey, Beginning with the Snub Cube / Pentagonal Isositetrahedron Base/Dual Compound

The snub cube and its dual make an attractive compound. Since the snub cube is chiral, its chirality is preserved in this compound. If you examine the convex hull of this compound, you will find it to be chiral as … Continue reading
