    You should be able to design your own, and then watch them rotate. That would have been better.

    I'm struggling to tell the difference between these

    http://polyhedra.org/poly/show/116/g...sidodecahedron
    http://polyhedra.org/poly/show/117/p...sidodecahedron
    http://polyhedra.org/poly/show/118/m...sidodecahedron
    http://polyhedra.org/poly/show/119/t...sidodecahedron

    wikipedia helps a bit

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnson_solids

    The last three operations — augmentation, diminution, and gyration — can be performed more than once on a large enough solid. We add bi- to the name of the operation to indicate that it has been performed twice. (A bigyrate solid has had two of its cupolae rotated.) We add tri- to indicate that it has been performed three times. (A tridiminished solid has had three of its pyramids or cupolae removed.)
    Still, I'm a bit :bawa: about it
