The Snub Dodecahedron’s Big Brother
The polyhedron above reminded me of the snub dodecahedron, which is shown below. Both rotating images were made using Stella 4d, which you can try for yourself — with a free trial download available — right here.

The Triangles of a Snub Dodecahedron
The snub dodecahedron, one of the Archimedean solids, has eighty faces which are triangles, and twelve pentagonal faces as well. In the view above, the pentagons are rendered invisible, allowing the interior to be viewed as the solid rotates. The … Continue reading

Variations of the Snub Dodecahedron
To make the first of these variations, above, I augmented each triangular face of a snub dodecahedron with an antiprism 2.618 times as tall as the triangles’ edge length, and then took the convex hull of the result. The other … Continue reading

The Snub Dodecahedron and Related Polyhedra, Including Compounds
The dual of the snub dodecahedron (above) is called the pentagonal hexacontahedron (below, left). The compound of the two is shown below, at right. (Any of the smaller images here may be enlarged with a click.) Like all chiral polyhedra, … Continue reading
