Built Models of Compound Polyhedra

Post by marcelteun » Fri Oct 11, 2019 2:35 pm

I thought we could gather models for compound polyhedra. I don't know why, but I like compound polyhedra and I built quite a few (well, relatively) of them.

This is the latest one I built:

It is referred to as 10A | A5xI / D3xI. I guess a 3D is quickly available in Stella, though I don't know how, otherwise I could add a link to a 3D player of the model.

There is also a 10B version, that I built before. Together they form a pair that I refer to as "Mr and Mrs". I will add pictures to these later

Looks to be very well made. Well done!

Yes you can find this in Stella at "Stella Library->Compounds->Cubes 10 B"

Here is a picture of both version (A and B) together

I call them "Mr and Mrs"

Marcel,

great models, assembled very precisely!

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

I think I just called them A and B at random. They may have more formal names.

I used the nomenclature from Verheyen's book "Symmetry Orbits"
