Excluding facetings where the face's vertices lie on its edges?

Post by senkoquartz » Thu Jun 25, 2020 6:01 pm

I was searching for isohedral triacontahedra by faceting the icosidodecahedron and checking its duals. But 95% of them end up having faces with verts lying on their own edges. Is there a way to skip over these?

but alas, the thread title should say "facetings where the DUAL'S face's vertices lie on its edges"

So the dual property, the property we'd find in the faceting, would be a vertex where two or more faces meet that lie in the same plane.

I guess it would be possible, but no there's no automated way to skip those at the moment.
