Some Stellations of the Truncated Dodecahedron
The stellationseries of the truncated dodecahedron contains some interesting polyhedra. Selections from this series appear below. The polyhedron above is the 24th stellation of the truncated dodecahedron, while the one below is the 25th stellation. The polyhedron immediately above is the truncated … Continue reading

The 21st and 22nd Stellations of the Truncated Dodecahedron
Stellation of a polyhedron involves extending its faces and/or edges into space to form other polyhedra, often with a starlike appearance, which is where the words “stellation,” “stellate,” and “stellated” originate. (“Stella” is Latin for “star.”) Since this can be … Continue reading

A Faceting of the Truncated Dodecahedron, Together with Its Dual
This faceting of the truncated dodecahedron, one of many, was made with Stella 4d, software you can buy, or try for free, here. Here is its dual, below.

The Compound of the Truncated Dodecahedron and Its Dual, the Triakis Icosahedron
I made this using Stella 4d, which you can find at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
A Cluster of Truncated Dodecahedra
I made this, using Stella 4d, by augmenting each decagonal face of the cluster in the previous post with a truncated dodecahedron. You can give this program a try yourself, for free, at http://www.software3d.com/stella.php.
A “Bowtie” Expansion of the Truncated Dodecahedron
This polyhedron has the twelve regular decagons and twenty regular triangles of the truncated dodecahedron, but they are moved outwards from the center, and rotated slightly, creating gaps. These gaps are then filled with thirty pairs of isosceles trapezoids in … Continue reading
