Re: Two new noble polyhedra - a new source of convex hulls to search from?

senkoquartz, your latest discoveries brought me to the following: I augmented the icosahedron with pyramids, faceted it isohedral and faceted the duals of the convex hulls of the results again. Thus I found four more noble polyhedra: https://i.postimg.cc/sBRmDPYB/Faceted-Stellated-Dual-of-Augmented-...

Re: Two new noble polyhedra - a new source of convex hulls to search from?

Ah, thanks, I got it now. The first one is really great with its pentagonal faces and I'm eager to build it in paper.

Re: Two new noble polyhedra - a new source of convex hulls to search from?

I was not able to reproduce this with my equipment because stella always crashes when I try to create an isohedral faceting of the small retrosnub icosicosidodecahedron's dual or its convex hull. Could you describe how you managed to do so?

Thanks

Re: What are your favorite polyhedra?

These are beautiful models and very pretty polyhedra/polytopes! To me it is difficult to say which one is my favorite polyhedron. It changes all day and every model I finished is my favorite one for some time. In principle, I love all uniform ones. And one of my favorite is the rhombic triacontahedr...

Re: A list of every* isohedral triacontahedron, plus every* rigidly isohedral polyhedron, and a list of nobles

Great work! Thanks for sharing.
I can hardly stop myself from building a paper model of 198 42 Rb immediately.
Others like 309 93 L or 301 85 L would be a challenge.

Re: What's the most complex model you've ever made?

Very nice model, cool and elegant colouring.
Is it so that in the polyhedron always one edge must be
counted twice because two edges of one heptagon meet
there?

Re: Noble polyhedra. Where can I find them?

My paper about exploring noble polyhedra with Stella4D is now online at the Bridges Website:

Re: Noble polyhedra. Where can I find them?

It is that truncated icosidodecahedron problem that I mentioned above. Stella can‘t handle it because there are too many data. Some of the Brückner polyhedra with 120 vertices from the library can be used as source for new noble ones and stella doesn‘t crash. But all of them have only 60 vertices an...

Re: Noble polyhedra. Where can I find them?

Very nice! I could construct them from W115_01_d resp. W110_01_d.
The faces of your third one are very similar to those of W96_01_sd, but
the stellation diagram is different.

Re: A few pics

The second compound is really cool.
You had to cut and glue some very small facelets.

Re: Noble polyhedra. Where can I find them?

I was able to reproduce this, it‘s really nice. Unfortunately it is only isohedral.

I sent you a table with my noble findings the other day in a private message, so that you can compare your list with mine.

Re: Noble polyhedra. Where can I find them?

In my paper paper for this year‘s Bridges Conference in Helsinki (which has been cancelled due to corona) I describe how I used Stella4D to create noble polyhedra. I did it in the way Robert mentioned above and which is very easy to do. I was only interested in distinct ones, not in componds. I foun...

Re: Internal Parts

If you select the stellation view in the view toolbar, you can step through the stellations by hitting the up/down keys and you get all internal parts you like.

Re: Built Models of Compound Polyhedra

Marcel,

great models, assembled very precisely!

Is the nomenclature of these compounds ( 10A.., 10B..., ) written anywhere?
