Stevinus was the first to show how to model regular and semiregular polyhedra by delineating their frames in a plane.
The "rhombic dodecahedron," one of the geometrical semiregular solids, is an important crystal form.
- Two Archimedean solids of 26 faces are derived from the coaxial cube, octahedron and semiregular (rhombic) dodecahedron (see below).
Other examples of reciprocal holohedra are: the rhombic dodecahedron and cuboctahedron, with regard to the cube and octahedron; and the semiregular triacontahedron and icosidodecahedron, with regard to the dodecahedron and icosahedron.
As examples of facial holohedra we may notice the small rhombicuboctahedron and rhombic dodecahedron, and the small rhombicosidodecahedron and the semiregular triacontahedron.
