There are lots of ways to get there, but it is not a built-in model as such. First you'll need to make sure you've got a stellation view open. Select one of the views (by clicking in it) and use "View->View Models->Base Stellation" (or the much simpler toolbar button).
  • Use "Stellation->Stellation Criteria->Miller's Rules". Then just hit the Up arrow till you see it (11 times I believe starting at the original icosahedron).
  • Otherwise, you could open a Stellation View or Cell View beside it and try to select the appropriate cells yourself to recreate the desired stellation.
