The **tridyakis icosahedron** is a uniform dual polyhedron. It consists of 120 scalene triangles.

If its dual, the great cubicuboctahedron, has an edge length of 1, then the triangle faces' short edges will be , the medium edges will be , and the long edges will be . The triangles have one interior angle of , one of , and one of .

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

A tridyakis icosahedron with dual edge length 1 has vertex coordinates given by all even permutations of:
