Zonohedra are a subset of polyhedra. In a zonohedron, all the faces are zonogons. A zonogon is a polygon with an even number of sides, as well as having opposite sides both congruent and parallel. This small collection of rotating … Continue reading
Manipulating known polyhedra in the effort to find new ones, as I did here, is made easy with Stella 4d, a program available at this website.
I used Stella 4d to make this zonohedron. This program may be tried for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
These polyhedral images were created with Stella 4d, a program you may try for free at this website.
In a recent post, I showed many images of zonohedra, then challenged readers to figure out, from the images, what zonohedra are: polyhedra with only zonogons as faces. Zonogons, I then explained, are polygons with (A) even numbers of edges, … Continue reading
Every zonohedron is a polyhedron, but not all polyhedra are zonohedra. Examples of zonohedra appear below. If you don’t already know what zonohedra are, can you figure out the definition from the examples shown, before reading the definition below the … Continue reading
This zonohedron contains faces which are regular decagons (12 of them), equilateral octagons (30, all of the same type), equilateral hexagons (380 of them, of 7 types, with one of these 7 types, of which there are 20, being regular), … Continue reading
