The Compound of the Truncated Isocahedron and the Pentakis Dodecahedron, with Related Polyhedra
The yellowandred polyhedron in the compound below is the truncated icosahedron, one of the Archimedean solids. The blue figure is its dual, the pentakis dodecahedron, which is one of the Catalan solids. The next image shows the convex hull of … Continue reading

Seven Different Facetings of the Truncated Icosahedron
The polyhedron above is the truncated icosahedron, widely known as the pattern for most soccer balls. In the image below, the faces and edges have been hidden, leaving only the vertices. To make a faceted version of this polyhedron, these … Continue reading

A Faceted Truncated Icosahedron
This is one of many possible facetings of the truncated icosahedron. I made it using Stella 4d, which you can try for yourself at this website: http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

A Cluster of 33 Truncated Icosahedra
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.

A Pyritohedral ColoringScheme for the Truncated Icosahedron
While the polyhedron above, informally known as the “soccer ball,” has icosidodecahedral symmetry, its coloringscheme does not. Instead, I colored the faces in such a way that the coloringscheme has pyritohedral symmetry — the symmetry of a standard volleyball. This … Continue reading
