494 Circles, Each, Adorning Two Great Rhombcuboctahedra, with Different (Apparent) Levels of Anxiety

  The design on each face of these great rhombcuboctahedra is made from 19 circles, and was created using both Geometer’s Sketchpad and MS-Paint. I then used a third program, Stella 4d (available here), to project this image on each … Continue reading

Unsquashing the Squashed Meta-Great-Rhombcuboctahedron

I noticed that I could arrange eight great rhombcuboctahedra into a ring, but that ring, rather than being regular, resembled an ellipse. I then made a ring of four of these elliptical rings. After that, I added a few more … Continue reading

A Great Rhombcuboctahedron, Decorated with Circles and Hexagons

The images on the faces of this polyhedron were created with Geometer’s Sketchpad and MS-Paint. Projecting these images onto these faces, and then creating this rotating image, was accomplished using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator— a program you can try for … Continue reading
