Deciding What Other Shapes Can be Made

Now we have constructed two different uniform polyhedra, the first two shown below. Look at them first to see what they have in common, and try to think of a rule for building shapes with the modules. Then look at the other uniform polyhedra on this page and try to decide if it is possible to build them with the modules. Hint: Look at the vertices of each shape.

rhombicuboctahedron rhombicuboctahedron

truncated icosahedron left arrow  truncated icosahedron
truncated dodecahedron  right arrow
