Truncated icosidodecahedron

Truncated icosidodecahedron 350

The polyhedron is obtained on the basis of the operation of mathematical expansion (for more detail, No. 31 of the Magic Edges).

A truncated icosidodecahedron is a semiregular convex polyhedron with two properties:
1. All faces are regular polygons of three types - a decagon, a hexagon 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.


The truncated icosidodecahedron is one of the 13 solids of Archimedes.

Archimedean bodies 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.


Polyhedron details

To build the model, the following details will be required:
- 12 pcs. decagons
- 20 pcs. hexagons
- 30 pcs. squares
You can independently make a model of a polyhedron, either using standard geometric shapes, or by downloading nets with shapes — a color net. For this you need 3 sheets of A4

Truncated icosidodecahedron

To assemble polyhedra, we can offer you ready-made patterns that are cut and folded.
However, this will not be a classic polyhedron shape.
The polyhedron will be modified.
The external contours will be identical to the shape of the Archimedean solid - the Truncated icosidodecahedron.
But the polyhedron itself will have through holes in place of decagonal faces.

For assembly you need to use the details of the Magic Edges 31 kit.
In addition, in the issue itself you will find information about the structure of the polyhedron.
