A Bizarre Variant of the Stella Octangula
The Stella Octangula is another name for the compound of two tetrahedra. In this variant, each triangular face is replaced by a panel of three irregular pentagons. I used Stella 4d to make it, and you can find that program … Continue reading
An Elongated Stella Octangula
The Stella Octangula is another name for the compound of two tetrahedra. I made this elongated version, which uses narrow isosceles triangles in place of the usual equilateral triangles, using Stella 4d — polyhedronmanipulation software you can find at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
