Wedge-deltified rhombic dodecahedron
|Author||Amafirlian 20:13, 2 August 2007 (UTC)|
(0,24,12,0,0,0,8,6)-deltahedron consisting of 12 modules containing 1 sphere of valency 5, and 2 spheres of valency 4, on top of a rhombic dodecahedron. As a result of connecting everything 8 spheres have a valency of 9, and 6 spheres have a valency of 10.
The smallest angle between the rods is about 53.9°, which is quite close to the limit.
Because of the shape of the modules, a fitting name (see also here) is a wedge-deltified rhombic dodecahedron.
It is completely rigid, and highly reminiscent of Alain Lobel's frames.
Building Instructions Edit
- Build a rhombic dodecahedron
- Put a module on top of it
- The modules look a bit like an arrow. For each of the 4 groups of 3 rhombic faces, line the 'arrows' up head to tail.
