Hello,

I'm making a Triacontahedron from Megaminx.
I consult with Carter about Triacontahedron, and I knew she don't plan to make it from megaminx, then I'm making it.

It seems "Rhombic Triacontahedron", but I want to name it to "Diamond Triacontahedron". Because Rhombic Dodecahedron from 3x3x3 is called other name, "Diamond Dodecahedron" in Japan. (This name was named by Mr.Watanabe)
And the Triacontahedron's plane is constituted from 1 angled edge and 2 corners and 2 centers likes Rhombic (Diamond) Dodecahedron.

I try to finish it in this weekend's holidays called 'Golden Week' in Japan.

I love it!
Congratulations.

I would certainly would like to see more duals of the Archimedian Polyhedra. Nice thing about them is that all of the faces are congruent!!
(The one you modded is the dual of the icosidodecahedron)

Is it sticker yet? Because I would definitely like to see it and also scrambled to. So are you going to have 15 or 30 different colors on it.

Yes, I'm planning to finish it by 15 colors stickers.
Because I don't have 30 colors.
But I think, the 30 colors stickers can be made by PC and printer. I'll try it too.

And sorry, I coudn't finish it on last weekend, then I can't contribute it now.
Please wait for my contribution.
