An Excavated Tetrahedron

Polyhedral excavation is the opposite of augmentation. In this excavated tetrahedron, short pyramids have been removed from each face. I made this using Stella 4d, which can be tried for free at this website.

Spectral Tetrahedra

Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator has a “put models on vertices” function which I used to build this complex of tetrahedra. If you’d like to try this software for yourself, there is a free trial version available at

A Tetrahedral Array of Pulsating Tetrahedra


I created this using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator. You may try this software, for free, at

The Eleventh Stellation of the Truncated Octahedron Is an Interesting Polyhedral Compound

This compound has three parts: two tetrahedra, plus one smaller cube. I made it using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, which you can try for free at

To make this polyhedron, I first changed the symmetry-type 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
