The Fifth Stellation of the Icosahedron
I made this using Stella 4d, software you can try out for free at this website: http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

The Eighteenth Stellation of the Rhombicosidodecahedron Is an Interesting Polyhedral Compound
The 18th stellation of the icosidodecahedron, shown above, is also an interesting compound. The yellow component of this compound is the rhombic triacontahedron, and the blueandred component is a “stretched” form of the truncated icosahedron. This was made using Stella … Continue reading

A Pyritohedral, Stellated Polyhedron, and Its Convex Hull
To make this polyhedron using Stella 4d (available here), I began with the dodecahedron, dropped the symmetry of the model from icosahedral to tetrahedral, and then stellated it thirteen times. This stellated polyhedron has pyritohedral symmetry, but this is easier … Continue reading

A Second Type of Double Icosahedron, and Related Polyhedra
After seeing my post about what I called the “double icosahedron,” which is two complete icosahedra joined at one common triangular face, my friend Tom Ruen brought my attention to a similar figure he likes. This second type of double icosahedron … Continue reading

An Offspring of a Dodecahedron and a Tetrahedron
To make this polyhedron, I first changed the symmetrytype of a dodecahedron from icosahedral to tetrahedral, then stellated it twice. This was done using Stella 4d, a program you may try for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

The 43rd Stellation of the Snub Dodecahedron, and Related Polyhedra, Part One
If you stellate the snub dodecahedron 43 times, this is the result. The yellow faces are kites, not rhombi. Like the snub dodecahedron itself, this polyhedron is chiral. Here is the mirrorimage of the polyhedron shown above. Any chiral polyhedron … Continue reading
