A Zonohedron with 1382 Faces, Based on the Rhombicosidodecahedron
This zonohedron was formed from zones based on the faces, edges, and vertices of a rhombicosidodecahedron. The first image shows it colored by face type. The second image has the faces colored by number of sides. Finally, here’s one in … Continue reading

A Zonohedron Featuring Hexadecagons
I stumbled upon this zonohedron by adding zones to a truncated octahedron, based on its faces, edges, and vertices. It was created using Stella 4d, which you may try for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php. To the best of my recollection, this … Continue reading

A Second Type of Double Icosahedron, and Related Polyhedra
After seeing my post about what I called the “double icosahedron,” which is two complete icosahedra joined at one common triangular face, my friend Tom Ruen brought my attention to a similar figure he likes. This second type of double icosahedron … Continue reading

A Zoo of Zonohedra
Zonohedra are a subset of polyhedra with all faces in pairs of parallel and congruent zonogons. Zonogons are polygons with sides which occur only as parallel and congruent pairs of line segments. As a consequence of this, the faces of … Continue reading

Six Zonohedra
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
