The great icosidodecahedron or gid is a quasiregular uniform polyhedron. It consists of 20 equilateral triangles and 12 pentagrams, with two of each joining at a vertex. It can be derived as a rectified great stellated dodecahedron or great icosahedron.
Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]
A great icosidodecahedron of side length 1 has vertex coordinates given by all permutations of
and even permutations of
The first set of vertices corresponds to a scaled octahedron which can be inscribed into the icosidodecahedron.
