Order this beautiful Rhombic Triacontahedron
for your personal desk or to display in your mathematical models collection. This model is part of our Catalan Polyhedra Collection
All models in our Catalan Polyhedra Collection are available in three sizes:
- Large = Scaled series (diameters range from 50 to 150 mm)
Models in this series vary in size according to their complexity. This option is particularly good if you plan to order the entire set of Catalan polyhedra and want them to look like a coherent set of mathematical models. We've optimized the size and density of these Large models to make them affordable in Versitile Plastic and Professional Plastic.
- Medium = 40mm series
Models in this series are all 40mm in diameter, regardless of complexity. This option is good for single desk toys and personal collections. These models are optimized to be inexpensive in Versitile Plastic and affordable in Steel.
- Small = 20mm series
Models in this series are all 20mm in diameter, which makes them about the size of large dice. These models are printable in most materials, even Precious Metals. You can also order them as a pair with loops for hanging on earring hooks: Rhombic Triacontahedron Earrings.
Fun Facts about the Rhombic Triacontahedron
-Has 30 faces, 60 edges, and 32 vertices
-Each of its faces is the same "golden" rhombus shape
-One of the 13 Catalan solids
-Dual of the Icosidodecahedron
-Many different polyhedra can be formed from subsets of its vertices, including ten tetrahedra, five cubes, an icosahedron and a dodecahedron (see Wikipedia
