The metabidiminished rhombicosidodecahedron is one of the 92 Johnson solids (J81). It consists of 2+2+2+4 triangles, 1+1+2+4+4+4+4 squares, 2+2+2+4 pentagons, and 2 decagons. It can be constructed by removing two non-opposite pentagonal cupolaic caps of the small rhombicosidodecahedron.

## Vertex coordinates
