List of Wenninger Polyhedron Models

List Of Wenninger Polyhedron Models

This table contains an indexed list of the Uniform and stellated polyhedra from the book Polyhedron Models, by Magnus Wenninger.

The book was written as a guide book to building polyhedra as physical models. It includes templates of face elements for construction and helpful hints in building, and also brief descriptions on the theory behind these shapes.

It contains the 75 nonprismatic uniform polyhedra, as well as 44 stellated forms of the convex regular and semiregular polyhedra.

This list was written to honor this early polyhedral work from Wenninger, and to provide a detailed reference to the 119 numbered models in his book.

Models listed here can be cited as "Wenninger Model Number N", or WN for brevity.

The polyhedra are grouped below in 5 tables: Regular (1–5), Semiregular (6–18), regular star polyhedra (20–22,41), Stellations and compounds (19–66), and uniform star polyhedra (67–119). The four regular star polyhedra are listed twice because they belong to both the uniform polyhedra and stellation groupings.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, list and/or models:

    A man’s interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry list of the fauna and flora of a town.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The advice of their elders to young men is very apt to be as unreal as a list of the hundred best books.
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (1841–1935)

    The greatest and truest models for all orators ... is Demosthenes. One who has not studied deeply and constantly all the great speeches of the great Athenian, is not prepared to speak in public. Only as the constant companion of Demosthenes, Burke, Fox, Canning and Webster, can we hope to become orators.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
