I created these with Stella 4d, which you may try for free at this website. To make a given polyhedral stellation appear larger, simply click on it.
Each of these has a tetrahedron hidden from view in the center. These were made using Stella 4d, which you may try for yourself here.
Any of these rotating polyhedra may be made larger with a click. I created them using Stella 4d, a program you may try (as a free trial download) at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
Any of these rotating polyhedra may be made larger with a single click. All were created using Stella 4d, a program you may try for free at this website: http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
Mathematicians have discovered more than one set of rules for polyhedral stellation. The software I use for rapidly manipulating polyhedra (Stella 4d, available here, including as a free trial download) lets the user choose between different sets of stellation criteria, … Continue reading
An interesting phenomenon in physics, and physics education, is the simplicity of symmetric situations, compared to the complexity of similar situations which are, instead, asymmetrical. Students generally learn the symmetrical versions first, such as this static equilibrium problem, with the … Continue reading
