The tessellations of the faces of this rhombic triacontahedron first appeared in my last post here. For putting the whole thing together and creating this rotating .gif, I used a program called Stella 4d. If you want to, you can try Stella for free at this website.
It’s hard to get regular pentagons, regular star pentagons, regular decagons, and related polygons to tessellate the plane while maintaining radial symmetry. This is my latest attempt.
This is a continuation of the process shown in the last post here, but with a different coloring-scheme.
I made this using Stella 4d, which you can try for free at this website.
I created this image using Stella 4d, which you can try for free right here. It’s much like a tessellation, but in three dimensions instead of two.
Unlike my previous octagon-tiling discoveries (see previous post), this is a chiral, radial tessellation, with the colors chosen to highlight that fact.
In April 2014, I found a tessellation of the plane which uses two kinds of octagons — both types equilateral, but only one type regular.
Now, I have found two more ways to tessellate a plane with octagons, and these octagons are also equilateral. However, in these new tessellations, only one type of octagon is used. One of them appears below, twice (the second time is with reversed colors), and the other one appears, once, in the next post.
