Snub dodecahedron

Snub dodecahedron

A polyhedron is obtained by transform into the rhombicosidodecahedron (for more detail, No. 29 of the Magic Edges).

Snub dodecahedron is a semiregular polyhedron with two properties:
1. All faces are regular polygons of two types - a pentagon and a triangle;
2. For any pair of vertices, there is a symmetry of the polyhedron (that is, a motion that translates the polyhedron into itself) that transforms one vertex to another.

Archimedes

The snub dodecahedron is one of the 13 solids of Archimedes.

Archimedean solids are semiregular polyhedra in the sense that their faces are regular polygons, but they are not the same, while the condition of one of the types of spatial symmetry (tetrahedral, octahedral or icosahedral) is preserved.

The polyhedron can be made in one of the other options - the snub dodecahedron having a twist to the left and having a twist to the right.

To build a model of snub dodecahedron, you can download the shape net in pdf format and print it on an A4 sheet.

For printing, you can use both white and colored paper.

We connect two parts of the net into a single net as shown in the figure:

Next, we glue the net and obtain a snub dodecahedron polyhedron.

Video. Build a polyhedron from a single net


This video from our partners, the ART KOSEKOMA team, clearly demonstrates how the pattern is converted into a geometric shape:

 

Snub dodecahedron from the set "Magic Edges"


archimedean polyhedra

To assemble polyhedra, we can offer you ready-made patterns that are cut and folded.
To do this, you need to use the details of the set Magic Edges 29.
In addition, in the release itself you will find information about the structure of the polyhedron.
