Informations on the shown models

All Polyhedra are made of type-writer paper. The diameter is about 7 up to 40 cm. Construction is done making layers beginning in the center. The facelets were cut out with knives and scissors and then they were glueed to the final shape.

The sequence and the combination of the models on the sites are not systematical.The names and the w-numbers (for example w85: Quasirhombicuboctahedron) are taken from M. Wenningers book "Polyhedron models". Sort and number of the faces of most of the models are given.

On the following sites and the links there you find nearly everything which is known about polyhedra.There are thousands of wonderful images, animated ones and models that can be moved with the mouse:
