Three Stellations of the Truncated Cube

The polyhedron above is the 12th stellation of the truncated cube. The one below is the 14th. The next one shown is the 18th and final stellation. If stellated again, the result is an ordinary truncated cube. These virtual models … Continue reading

A Decorated Pentagonal Hexacontahedron, with Three of Its Stellations

This is a pentagonal hexacontahedron, the dual of the snub dodecahedron. It’s decorated with mandalas of the the type I blogged here, two posts ago. The mandalas do interesting things when this polyhedron is stellated, as you can see below. … Continue reading

Building a “Polyhedral Porcupine”

This is the icosahedron, followed by its first stellation. The first stellation of the icosahedron can be stellated again, and again, and so on. The “final stellation” of the icosahedron is the one right before the stellation-series “wraps around,” back … Continue reading

Some Stellations of the Truncated Dodecahedron

The stellation-series of the truncated dodecahedron contains some interesting polyhedra. Selections from this series appear below. The polyhedron above is the 24th stellation of the truncated dodecahedron, while the one below is the 25th stellation. The polyhedron immediately above is the truncated … Continue reading

The 11th, 13th, and 15th Stellations of the Icosahedron

First, this is the 11th stellation. Next, the 13th: And, finally, the 15th stellation of the icosahedron: I used Stella 4d, which you can find here, to make these.
