Medial Rhombic Triacontahedron

Medial Rhombic Triacontahedron

A triacontahedron has 30 faces • This model, being a "medial" triacontahedron, means that a face crosses through the center of the polyhedron, creating a "false edge" where it intersects with an adjacent face • The short edges, appearing near the center of this model, are these false edges • The true face actually stretches from one extreme "sharp" star point, across and (nearly) through the center, to an nearly-opposing "sharp" point (not immediately-opposite point) • Open the group, and you'll see that the group is composed of medial rhombic face components • If you count these stretched "pointy" components, the count is, indeed, 30 #geodesic #icosahedron #polyhedron #stellated #stellation
