A Second Coloring-Scheme for the Chiral Tetrated Dodecahedron

For detailed information on this newly-discovered polyhedron, which is near (or possibly in) the “fuzzy” border-zone between the “near-misses” (irregularities real, but not visually apparent) and “near-near-misses” (irregularities barely visible, but there they are) to the Johnson solids, please see … Continue reading

The Chiral Tetrated Dodecahedron: A New Near-Miss?

The images above show a new near-miss (to the Johnson solids) candidate I just found using Stella 4d, software you can try here. Like the original tetrated dodecahedron (a recognized near-miss shown at left, below), making this polyhedron relies on … Continue reading

The Tetrated Dodecahedron

The tetrated dodecahedron is a near-miss Johnson solid. It was first discovered in 2002 by Alex Doskey. I then independently rediscovered it in 2003, and named it, not learning of Doskey’s original discovery for several years after that. It has … Continue reading
