The inverted snub dodecadodecahedron or isdid, is a uniform polyhedron. It consists of 60 snub triangles, 12 pentagrams, and 12 pentagons. Three triangles, 1 pentagon, and one pentagram meeting at each vertex. It can be constructed by alternation of the quasitruncated dodecadodecahedron and then setting all edge lengths to be equal.

This polyhedron has tiny holes near the pentagrams' "notched" regions, as well as ambiguously-tunneled "arches" opposite the notches. These make the inverted snub dodecadodecahedron the only uniform polyhedron to have holes not caused by filling method (e.g. the great dirhombicosidodecahedron's numerous, very obvious holes when binary-filled).

Measures[edit | edit source]

The circumradius R ≈ 0.85163 of the inverted snub dodecadodecahedron with unit edge length is the smallest positive real root of:

Its volume V ≈ 4.61431 is given by the smallest positive real root of:

These same polynomials define the circumradius and volume of the snub dodecadodecahedron.
