Re: New Feature: 3D Printing App?

You can try to augment the faces with thin prisms and then export a stl-file. It's a bit complicated and the result isn't very exact, but it should work.

Re: Enantiomer of the Pentagonal Hexecontahedron

Try in the poly-menue: add model to mirror image.

Model of new noble polyhedron

This is a paper model I made of a noble polyhedron senkoquartz discovered lately.
It‘s not very neat because I made it quickly with bad paper. I‘ll make a new one later.

Oh, sorry, you're right, it's the same. I didn't look carefully.

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

In the meantime I found one more pair. It is derived from an augmented dodecahedron:

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

I struggled with the cubic ones some time ago. Trying to reproduce Bückners 24,3 I faceted a rhombic cuboctahedron in a way Branko Grünbaum described years ago. In the preview window everything looks allright but if I hit shift ctrl F the face is splitted to coplanar triangles and I get 12 disphenoi...

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

Great!

I tried starting from geodesic spheres and many different bodies created with the morphing tools. Thus we get trillions of isogonal polyhedra but all isohedral facetings from these were crowns and disphenoids. All this is poking in the fog.

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?

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...
