Kepler-Poinsot Solids. The stellations of a dodecahedron are often referred to as Kepler-Solids. The Kepler-Poinsot solids or polyhedra is a popular name for the. The four Kepler-Poinsot polyhedra are regular star polyhedra. For nets click on the links to the right of the pictures. Paper model Great Stellated Dodecahedron. A Kepler–Poinsot polyhedron covers its circumscribed sphere more than once, with the centers of faces acting as winding points in the figures which have.

A hundred years poineot, John Conway developed a systematic terminology for stellations in up to four dimensions.
In the 20th Century, Artist M. Kkepler ‘s interest in geometric forms often led to works based on or including regular solids; Gravitation is based on a small stellated kkepler. This view was never widely held. Kepler—Poinsot polyhedron The four Kepler—Poinsot polyhedra are illustrated above. The three dodecahedra are all stellations of the regular convex dodecahedron, and the great icosahedron is a stellation of the regular convex icosahedron.
In this sense stellation is a unique operation, and not to be confused with the more general stellation described below. Kepler-Poinsot solids; gray with yellow face; in one image.
Some people call these two the Poinsot polyhedra. Duality Kepleer Kepler—Poinsot polyhedra exist in dual pairs: The four Kepler—Poinsot polyhedra are illustrated above. That the violet edges are the same, and that the green faces lie in the same planes.
In geometrya Kepler—Poinsot polyhedron is any of four regular star polyhedra. Media related to Kepler-Poinsot solids at Wikimedia Commons. The Kepler-Poinsot solids are four regular non-convex polyhedra that exist in addition to the five regular convex polyhedra known as the Platonic solids.
The Kepler-Poinsot Polyhedra
The great dodecahedron and great icosahedron have convex polygonal faces, but pentagrammic vertex figures. In geometrya Kepler—Poinsot polyhedron is any of four regular star polyhedra. He obtained them by stellating the regular convex dodecahedron, for the first time treating it keple a surface rather than a solid.
As with the Platonic solids, the Kepler-Poinsot solids have identical regular polygons for all their faces, and the same number of faces meet at each vertex.
All Kepler—Poinsot polyhedra have full icosahedral symmetryjust like their ekpler hulls. A table listing these solids, their dualsand compounds is given below. Mark’s Basilica, Venice, Italy, dating from ca. In this way he constructed the two stellated dodecahedra.

In the 20th Century, Artist Poisnot. Kepler’s final step was to recognize that these polyhedra fit the definition of regularity, even though they were not convexas the traditional Platonic solids were. They are composed of regular concave polygons and were unknown to the ancients.
