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:

    Do your children view themselves as successes or failures? Are they being encouraged to be inquisitive or passive? Are they afraid to challenge authority and to question assumptions? Do they feel comfortable adapting to change? Are they easily discouraged if they cannot arrive at a solution to a problem? The answers to those questions will give you a better appraisal of their education than any list of courses, grades, or test scores.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    Every morning I woke in dread, waiting for the day nurse to go on her rounds and announce from the list of names in her hand whether or not I was for shock treatment, the new and fashionable means of quieting people and of making them realize that orders are to be obeyed and floors are to be polished without anyone protesting and faces are to be made to be fixed into smiles and weeping is a crime.
    Janet Frame (b. 1924)

    French rhetorical models are too narrow for the English tradition. Most pernicious of French imports is the notion that there is no person behind a text. Is there anything more affected, aggressive, and relentlessly concrete than a Parisan intellectual behind his/her turgid text? The Parisian is a provincial when he pretends to speak for the universe.
    Camille Paglia (b. 1947)
