Repulsive Force Polyhedra Duals

Repulsive Force Polyhedra are obtained by putting a certain number of points in a sphere and making them repulse each other: they stabilize in a certain position where each point is the vertex of a polyhedra. Here I represented the dual of such polyhedron that is each vertex is replaced by a face, for 8, 9, 10, 17, and 32 points. This gives, in my opinion, a more aesthetical result.

Moreover, these shapes are the underlying polyhedra behing the following truncated sphere dice:
Alt D8, 4-fold D10D9, D17, D32.
