I made this precious-metal version of the truncated icosahedron using Stella 4d, a program which is available here: http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
There is one truncated icosahedron at the center of this cluster, and each of its 32 faces is augmented with another truncated icosahedron, for a total of 33. I built this cluster using Stella 4d, software available here.
While the polyhedron above, informally known as the “soccer ball,” has icosidodecahedral symmetry, its coloring-scheme does not. Instead, I colored the faces in such a way that the coloring-scheme has pyritohedral symmetry — the symmetry of a standard volleyball. This … Continue reading
I put these two polyhedra together using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator. If you’d like to try this program yourself, for free, this website is the one to visit: http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
I made this using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, software available here.
I made these faceted polyhedra, both facetings of the truncated icosahedron, using Stella 4d, software available here.
Buckminsterfullerene, a molecule made of 60 carbon atoms, and having the shape of a truncated icosahedron, is easily modeled with Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator (see http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php to try or buy this program). The first image shows the”ball and stick” version … Continue reading
