In one of our previous articles, we told you about a challenging task to make a polyhedron having just six identical figures. In November 1984, an article in the magazine called "Quantum” described how to make a stellated octahedron with similar principles.

The author of the article, Igor Glushkov (from Obninsk, Russia), offers the following idea. The stellated octahedron (the other name: Kepler’s “stella octangula”) can be cut into 4 equal parts and get a challenging task out of it. The main aim is to assemble these parts to get a polyhedron.

Each of the parts can be made of cardboard. To assemble a polyhedron, you will need 4 printed sheets of that model.

A dotted line indicates the fold lines.

The steps are as follows:

- Print 4 sheets
- Cut out every item
- Glue every detail
- Assemble the polyhedron.

The red-painted area should be inside the polyhedron, while the blue one is the outside.

Finished model of the polyhedron - **Stellated octahedron.**
