Yesterday at work I made a snub disphenoid out of ball-bearings and magnetic sticks. Here it is:
The snub disphenoid is one of the 92 Johnson solids, which is a group of polyhedra whose faces are all regular polygons (equilateral triangles, squares, pentagons, hexagons etc.), but that aren’t Platonic or Archimedean solids, prisms or antiprisms. Most of them are constructed by “cutting and pasting” bits of other more regular polyhedra together, but not this guy. He’s an elementary Johnson solid. He’s an individual. You can’t fool him.
I think he’s cool.
