These models were made using nets generated by Great Stella, but could also be made using Stella4D. Click on the images below to see a bigger picture and get more information about how they were built.
These are just seven of the 72621 fully supported stellations of the pentagonal icositetrahedron, but Great Stella can print nets for them all! (It can also create nets for the even larger number of non-fully supported stellations!)
Stellations of this model originally appeared in the paper Symmetry and Polyhedral Stellation by G. M. Fleurent (Computers Math. Applic. Vol. 17, No. 1-3, pp. 167-193, 1989). Two of my seven models, 3 and 7, did not appear in that paper. Of course, using Great Stella, you no longer need to understand or perform any complicated maths in order to make the models.

I have made three of these stellations. Click on the images below to see a bigger picture and get more details about each one, including views down each axis of symmetry.
"King Stella" | "Hemi-Twister" | "Dodecaplosion" |
Here are some others that I haven't made, but which deserve a mention. These have been exported from Great Stella for rendering in POV-Ray.
"The Ace" | "Suckers" | "Golden Checkers" |
"Gears" | "Spray" | "Kaboom" |
